As the mother of two young children with Type 1 diabetes, Victoria Peurrung has written a book about caring for children with diabetes based on her own “practical” experience. She includes lots of healthy recipes; kitchen tips; advice on how to deal with emergencies, such as lows and sick days; a brief summary of current research; and a good list of resources for more information and help. Providing information on the basics of diabetes, Mrs. Peurrung has written a fairly all-encompassing book, although she has not included information on insulin types her children do not use, including Lente, Ultralente and the soon-to-be-available Lantus. In general, the book is a good starting point for parents of newly diagnosed children.
