About this item

Approximately 208,000 Americans under age twenty have diagnosed diabetes, and the number is growing at an alarming rate. From 2001 to 2009, the number of American children diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes rose 23%; for Type 2 diabetes it rose 21%. While scientists and government organizations assess the reasons for the increase, parents are left to deal with its day-to-day ramifications, and to guide their children through the discovery and treatment process.In this chunky volume are a whopping 1,001 tips for parents. The tips answer questions like: What does the diagnosis mean? How do I get help? Should I change my child’s eating habits? What does insulin mean and how is it used? And what should I tell my child’s teacher? For ease of reference, they’re categorized, so answers can quickly and easily be found. They’re also provided in simple, jargon-free, and easy-to-understand language.
