"When You're a Parent with Diabetes" is a real life guide for people with diabetes who are interested in starting a family, or who are working to balance the care of their kids with their own self-care. Topics covered include deciding on pregnancy and/or adoption, preparing for parenthood, answering your children's questions about your diabetes, parenting through -and after- a tough insulin reaction, and maintaining motivation during a time in your life when your children require so much of your time and energy. With quotes and advice from other moms and dads with type 1 or type 2 diabetes, the book reassures you that you are not alone in your struggles to parent with diabetes.
"The book is at once personal and prescriptive, providing equal measures of practical information, support, and inspiration." - Peter Van Etten, President and CEO of the JDRF
"It's down-to-earth practical and articulate as well! To me, it was a great reminder that none of us is alone in this thing."Amy Tenderich, Diabetes Mine
