Synopsis

Living with Diabetes by Katrina Parker

This is an essential teen's guide to understanding diabetes. There are two main types of diabetes: type 1 and type 2. Though each one affects insulin differently, both result in high blood sugar levels. People with type 1 diabetes must take insulin injections, which may have a significant impact on their day-to-day life and activities, while those with type 2 diabetes can often be treated with diet and medication. The most common form of diabetes among adolescents is type 1, which affects nearly 95,500 American teenagers according to the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey.A user-friendly and accessible guide for teens living with the disease or who have diabetic family or friends, Living with Diabetes provides all the information readers need to understand the nature of diabetes and its consequences for daily life. Real-life cases and current treatments are covered, and informative sidebars highlight key points of interest. Appendixes list helpful organizations, support groups, online resources, and further reading.
