My List of Favorite Diabetes Books

A recent diagnosis that was brought to my attention led me to recommending¬†books about diabetes, so I decided to make a list of my favorite diabetes books that I’ve read over the years. If yours did not make the list, don’t get upset, I either have not had a chance to read it, or it just slipped my mind because there have been a lot sent my way over the years.

So, here we go, and in no particular order:

  1. Balancing Diabetes: Conversations About Finding Happiness and Living Well by Kerri Sparling
  2. Dealing with Diabetes Burnout: How to Recharge and Get Back on Track When You Feel Frustrated and Overwhelmed Living with Diabetes by Ginger Vieira
  3. Think Like a Pancreas: A Practical Guide to Managing Diabetes with Insulin by Gary Scheiner
  4. Kids First Diabetes Second: Tips for Parenting a Child with Type 1 Diabetes by Leighann Calentine
  5. Life is Short, Laundry is Eternal: Confessions of a Stay-at-Home Dad by Scott Benner (this one is not strictly about diabetes)
  6. Diabetes Do’s & How To’s by Riva Greenberg
  7. The Book of Better: Life with Diabetes Can’t be Perfect. Make it Better by Chuck Eichten
  8. Sugar Linings: Finding the Bright Side of Type 1 Diabetes by Sierra Sandison (I haven’t read this one yet, but it’s on my list)
  9. Thriving with Diabetes by David Edelman and Paul Rosman (I haven’t read this yet, but is next up on the list)
  10. The Diet Game by Marci Sloane MS, RD, LD/N, CDE
