Type 1 Diabetes in Children, Adolescents and Young Adults Summary

Type 1 Diabetes in Children, Adolescents and Young Adults by Ragnar Hanas

This practical book shows what you need to know to take control of your diabetes. It is intended for people with diabetes who are currently using insulin, or planning to do so - an increasing proportion of those with diabetes. Having diabetes means that you need to know more about the disease than your average doctor, to be able to understand and take care of your illness in an appropriate way. This is necessary both to enjoy your life today, and to avoid and postpone late complications of diabetes. Modern research shows unambiguously that a lower mean blood glucose will lessen the risk of late complications. By reading this book you will learn how this can be accomplished, easily and fitting into your lifestyle.
