Peter Lodewick approaches diabetes controls from a unique perspective. He has been able to see diabetes through the eyes of a patient-which has given him deep empathy to understand the trials of people with diabetes -- and as a physician, which has enabled him to learn from thousands of people how best to live well with the intricacies of diabetes.

The book addresses the important concerns of diabetes sufferers and their families head-on. There are sections on blood glucose monitoring, diet, exercise, travel, pregnancy, impotence and more. The focus is not just on how to survive, but rather how to live a normal healthy life. The "how-to" sections are full of important detail. Personal anecdotes transform the typically dry "how-to" into a recipe for real living human beings in the real world.

The wealth of Dr. Lodewick's direct experience-having lived with diabetes for more than 30 years-combined with professional experience developed over a lifetime make this book an important reference for every person with diabetes.
