This is the best book on diabetes I have seen and even those with Type 1 diabetes would gain a lot from reading it even though it is about Type 2.
It says it is “A Patient-Expert Guide for the Newly Diagnosed” and it walks through the first year of facing diabetes from the patients perspective.
I think the only reason Gretchen Becker has made it a Type 2 book is because she has Type 2 and maybe feels she lacks direct experience of Type 1. There are so many useful explanations about the intricacies of diabetes that I doubt there is a better book.
I’ll tell you more later. Meanwhile take a look on Amazon for reviews and prices. It’s the full red / pink covered version that I have.
