“Smart Pumping for People With Diabetes” by Barbara J. Anderson, PhD, and Howard Wolpert, MD, a new book published by the American Diabetes Association, teaches people with diabetes how to use the insulin pump effectively.
"Your Child Has Diabetes" is an easy-to-read resource that touches on the basics of diabetes in children: understanding the difference between type 1 and type 2, using insulin and oral medications, planning meals and exercise, and dealing with the emotional aspects of having diabetes. It is packed with illustrations and written for a seventh- and eighth-grade reading level.
Seniors with diabetes may need to make changes to their diet to remain healthy, according to the American Diabetes Association (ADA). In addition, people may have more difficulty preparing food as they get older.
You may not be a dummy, but chances are you are overwhelmed by all the diabetes information you are bombarded with, information that can be highly complex, technical and fast-changing. Information about diabetes can be difficult to incorporate into a healthy life.
Linda Fredrickson, MA, RN, CDE, vice president of global medical education at MiniMed Inc., writes that pump users who do not swim for such an extended period of time usually disconnect from their infusion site. Fredrickson offers Emily Adamski, a 15-year-old who was recently on the cover of Diabetes Forecast, as an example of how the pump can be managed when swimming.
