[RECOMMENDED!] Type 1 Teens: A Guide to Managing Your Life With Diabetes by Korey Hood, PhD. Illustrated by Bruan Ische. Magination Press, 2010. ISBN 1-4338-0788-2. 146 pages, paperback. $14.95.

Book Cover

Being a teenager is challenging. Add type 1 diabetes and it can get -- well -- very challenging. In Type 1 Teens: A Guide to Managing Your Life With Diabetes, Dr. Korey Hood offers teens a straight talking, no-nonsense guide that can help teens with type 1 not just survive, but thrive. Dr. Hood covers all the usual topics -- school, dating, alcohol -- but also emphasizes the importance of avoiding burnout, a topic not often explored with teens. Dr. Hood is a pediatric psychologist who works with kids and teens living with diabetes, but he also has type 1 and can empathize with the difficulty of living up to expectations that teens face. This isn't a book of "do this" or "do that." It's more of a strategy guide to help teens find their own way to success. There are so few resources to help teens, and thus this book helps to fill a void. Highly Recommended.
