Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Few diabetes books focus specifically on the day-to-day issues facing people who use insulin. In this fully updated and revised edition, diabetes educator Gary Scheiner provides the tools to “think like a pancreas”—to successfully master the art and science of matching insulin to the bodys ever-changing needs. Comprehensive, free of medical jargon, and packed with useful information not readily available elsewhere, this new edition covers the many strides taken in diabetes education and management since the first edition seven years ago.

Think Like a Pancreas includes critical information, such as day-to-day blood glucose control and monitoring, designing an insulin program to best match your lifestyle, up-to date medication and technology, and new insulin formulations and combinations.

Synopsis:

The essential guide that “provides an organized and systematic approach to demystify[ing] the complexities of insulin and glucose regulation”—Diabetes Source

KittyCee, October 25, 2014 (view all comments by KittyCee)
As a newly diagnosed Type 1.5 diabetic, I was in urgent need of additional information on how to manage my health care. Think Like a Pancreas was recommended to me as a comprehensive and very readable (and reliable!) source of information, particularly on basal/bolus dosing of insulin, and totally fit the bill! I highly recommend this book!
