From the psychological to the medical to the purely practical, Kathryn Gregorio Palmer guides parents with either type 1 or type 2 diabetes through the ups and downs of staying healthy while raising a family.
Raising a happy and healthy child with type 1 diabetes, as well as any siblings, requires flexibility, planning, and a great sense of humor above all else. It’s a journey full of challenges, but you are not alone!
Young adulthood is full of exciting discoveries, new adventures and lots of learning. For those young adults with type 1 diabetes, this time of life can be stressful and dangerous. This book is full of practical advice and first-person accounts of how to successfully manage the transition from dependence (life with Mom and Dad) to independence in life with type 1 diabetes.
