The manual that Dr. Peters co-authored with leading pediatric endocrinologist Jamie Wood, MD is now available as either a free PDF download or if you prefer it can still be purchased as a paperback book.
The Type 1 Diabetes Self-Care Manual helps guide you through the different phases of life with type 1 diabetes and share the science and clinical information that is required to successfully manage type 1 diabetes, and it also includes many patient stories and tips on how they have managed their condition.
While you may appreciate the medical insights and advice, what really makes this book different is reading the personal insights from our patients who contributed their stories to the book. For the newly diagnosed, you may be surprised about the stories of boiling to sterilize and reusing syringes, what life was like before blood glucose meters, or even imagining a time before continuous glucose monitors. Most of all you will learn that people manage their diabetes in different ways. Some will rave about getting an insulin pump and others revel in returning to shots. There are many ways to manage life with type 1 diabetes and you will learn as much from other patients as you will from the doctors.
Thanks to a grant from the Leona M. and Harry B. Helmsley Charitable Trust, this valuable guide is now freely available to download from the American Diabetes Association website.
