Think Like a Pancreas

Think Like a Pancreas

A Practical Guide to Managing Diabetes with Insulin--Completely Revised and Updated

A first-ever, indispensable, all-in-one resource for the millions of people with diabetes who use insulin

Few diabetes books focus specifically on the day-to-day issues facing people who use insulin. Diabetes educator Gary Scheiner provides the tools to “think like a pancreas”–to successfully master the art and science of matching insulin to the body’s ever-changing needs. Comprehensive, free of medical jargon, and packed with useful information not readily available elsewhere, this new edition covers the many strides taken in diabetes education and management since the previous edition.

Think Like a Pancreas includes critical information, such as day-to-day blood glucose control and monitoring, designing an insulin program to best match your lifestyle, up-to date medication and technology, and new insulin formulations and combinations.
