Publisher's Summary

Your First Year with Diabetes is the 12-month plan for anyone recently diagnosed with diabetes or for those wanting an inspired self-management plan. Taking listeners step-by-step through the first year, this practical guide provides the perfect blend of easy-to-digest information presented in a positive light, builds on need-to-know skills, and offers reasonable action items from which to choose for personal goal setting.

Your First Year is a health road map for people with diabetes, regardless of type. It reviews in-depth topics such as the vast array of medications (including insulin and insulin adjustment), ongoing nutrition education, physical activity and weight management strategies, and comprehensive resources including websites and apps. 

In addition to her clinical expertise, author and cartoonist Theresa Garnero brings some much-needed levity to a very serious topic. The science provided in this book is balanced out with patient-inspired, therapeutic humor. This unique approach is a breath of fresh air to diabetes self-care. It resonates well with people who thrive on messages of hope in a disease state that is often disheartening and overwhelming.
