There are dozens of books about managing diabetes, but none focuses specifically on using insulin. Now, in Think Like a Pancreas, certified diabetes educator and type 1 insulin user Gary Scheiner gives readers everything they need to know to “think like a pancreas,” i.e., to successfully master the art of matching insulin to the body’s ever-changing needs. A comprehensive, supremely practical guide free of medical mumbo jumbo, Think Like a Pancreas discusses day-to-day blood glucose control and monitoring; measuring and matching insulin to carbohydrate intake; the pluses and minuses of different insulin-delivery methods; hypoglycemia; exercise; the impact of emotions, stress, and illness; and the dozens of other issues that everyone taking insulin needs to master. A book that is long overdue, this first-ever, indispensable, all-in-one resource will enlighten and inspire the four million people whose lives and well-being depend on daily insulin intake.

About the author (2004)

GARY SCHEINER, M.S., C.D.E., is a Certified Diabetes Educator, insulin pump trainer, and exercise physiologist who has written dozens of articles on diabetes, fitness, and motivation. He uses his professional skills and personal experience to teach people the art and science of blood glucose balancing and runs a private practice in Wynnewood, Pennsylvania.

Barry Goldstein has practiced law in New York since 1978. He served on the Board of Directors of My Sisters' Place, one of the leading domestic violence agencies in the country for 14 years, including four years as Chairperson. As a result, many domestic violence agencies have referred clients to Mr. Goldstein because he is one of the few lawyers with expertise in domestic violence and because of his willingness to take cases on a pro bono or reduced fee basis. Mr. Goldstein has also worked with the Community Change Project of the Volunteer Counseling Service in Rockland County, New York since January of 1999 teaching domestic violence classes for men who have been convicted of domestic violence crimes.
