DIABETease: A lighter look at the serious subject of diabetes

Theresa Garnero, APRN, BC-ADM, MSN, CDE

DIABETease is a book of humorous illustrations, which inject a little fun into the otherwise serious side of diabetes. The ladybug mascot, named LadyBetes, that appears throughout the book also provides generalized facts and tips about the disease. Through her amusing cartoons, Garnero hopes to reduce stress, while inspiring interest in diabetes self-care management, for both adults and children.

DIABETease is a collection of diabetes-related cartoons by diabetes nurse Theresa Garnero. The 60-page book is an uplifting reminder to everyone living with diabetes that humor can be found in all aspects of life, including diabetes care. Readers of Diabetes Interview magazine will recognize Garnero’s work, as it has frequently appeared there. Garnero donates half of her profits from sale of DIABETease to diabetes research organizations.
