Cheating Destiny: Living with Diabetes, America's Biggest Epidemic by James S Hirsch
Cheating Destiny: Living with Diabetes, America's Biggest Epidemic

Mary Reagan, March 30, 2007

This book is incredibly supportive to anyone dealing with the daily challenge of living with diabetes. My husband was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes about 6 months ago, and I wish I had found this book to read then. It has helped me better understand the daily struggles, and ways to better support my husband in his vigilant monitoring of his disease.

The author has been a type 1 diabetic since he was 15 years old. His brother also a type 1 since he was a child. As the author was working on writing this book, his then 3 year old son was also diagnosed with type 1 diabetes. The inner conflict of a parent wanting to protect his son is clearly evident. Personal experiences, and the history of the disease and many reasearch efforts are presented.

I will recommend this book to others whose families are touched by diabetes.
