Books about diabetes matter to the CWD community. Books provide the information and the tool sets we need to make pump adjustments, healthy recipes, and decisions about our medical care. Books show us people with diabetes as the heroes, the scientists, the teachers, the athletes, the change-makers, and these narratives help shape the way we view this health condition.

Here at CWD, we've taken years to cultivate and curate a very special library, filled with stories and science that lift us up and keep us informed. These books are the ones we keep on our staff bookshelves and recommend to our friends. These are the stories we trust to keep us moving forward. Check out our CWD library, peruse the bookshelves, and please reach out if you have a dog-eared diabetes favorite that you'd like us to include.

Parents will also appreciate the collection of forms in the back to help with pump therapy at school. Eight of the 21 chapters are devoted to the use of continuous glucose sensors. In addition to an excellent introduction to sensors, Dr. Chase and Laurel Messer offer strategies for using the data from your sensor to improve diabetes care. Understanding Insulin Pumps, Continuous Glucose Monitors and the Artificial Pancreas, 3rd Edition is an essential addition to everyone’s diabetes care library. Highly recommended.As the Artificial Pancreas becomes closer to a reality (2017), all people who intend to use it will need to use both an insulin pump and a continuous glucose monitor (CGM).
