Approximately 208,000 Americans under age twenty have diagnosed diabetes, and the number is growing at an alarming rate. From 2001 to 2009, the number of American children diagnosed with type 1 diabetes rose 23 percent; for type 2 diabetes it rose 21 percent. While scientists and government organizations assess the reasons for the increase, parents are left to deal with its day-to-day ramifications, and to guide their children through the discovery and treatment process.Jeff Hitchcock, the editor of this volume, was in desperate need of advice for how to best support his young daughter after her diagnosis. When he searched for support, he was shocked by how little information existed. So he started his own support group, Children with Diabetes. And now, more than twenty years later, Children with Diabetes has answered more than twenty thousand questions from other parents, gets more than twenty thousand daily hits on its website, and has a highly respected Diabetes Team, a wealth of on-call experts for parents in need of support.In this volume, Jeff has collected a whopping 101 tips for parents. The tips answer questions such as: What does the diagnosis mean? How do I get help? Should I change my child’s eating habits? What does insulin mean, and how is it used? And what should I tell my child’s teacher? For ease of reference, they’re categorized, so answers can quickly and easily be found. They’re also provided in simple, jargon-free, and easy-to-understand language.

"I strongly recommend this text. Whether the reader is a relative novice or a seasoned veteran in diabetes care, the information will prove useful and concise and will likely stimulate further reading and study. House staff planning to rotate on my endocrine service should be forewarned: Management of Diabetes Mellitus: A Guide to Pattern Management is now required reading." --JAMA Praise for the previous edition "I recommend this book to nurses or physicians confronting patients afflicted with diabetes mellitus, as it presents a patterned approach to the understanding and management of this malady. Any patient with diabetes mellitus or health care professional using the information presented by these experts would be well prepared to manage this disease process" --Gloria K. Twilley, Lieutenant Colonel United States Air Force Nurse Corps The sixth edition of Management of Diabetes Mellitus fully reorganizes and expands upon the previous editions. While the new edition continues to set forth practical and easy-to-use guidelines for management, the newly expanded chapters contain detailed information on managing patients with different types of diabetes (type 1 and type 2), and further differentiates treatment and management strategies for various age groups. This edition also offers clear and concise explanations of the disease process, newly revised guidelines for the use of complementary and alternative therapies, and a guide for developing an educational program. Guthrie and Guthrie also stress the importance of self-management of diabetes, as much of this edition is dedicated to educating the diabetic patient on how to provide self-care, and control both acute and chronic complications of the disease. For the convenience of practitioners and diabetic patients themselves, this book contains reproducible forms, protocols, and guides that can be used for managing diabetes, including: Nutrition questionnaires Meal patterns comparing exchanges Carb Counting and Calorie Points Sample Calorie Point Distributions Exercise Log Intake Assessment Guide Clinical Practice Recommendations A guide to the "pattern approach"

Increasingly, children with significant medical issues are being incorporated into the general school environment. Given the potential effects of various disorders and conditions on educational prognosis, it is important for neuropsychologists, pediatric psychologists, school psychologists, teachers, and other professionals who are working with these children to be aware of the nature and course of these many disorders as well as the avenues for rehabilitation, accommodation, and classroom modification. In Children with Complex Medical Issues in Schools, Dr. Castillo bridges the gap between research and practice and provides a concise, yet thorough reference that covers a broad range of conditions, from high incidence disorders like epilepsy and meningitis, to those with less obvious neurological underpinnings like asthma and diabetes. Each chapter is written by clinicians with practical expertise with each disorder and includes: Case studies with results from neuropsychological evaluations to elicit understanding into how a student's school functioning may be affected by their medical history Recommendations for educational modifications and accommodations Data regarding morbidity and mortality rates, related medical issues, and common medical treatments Interventions for children with specific medical disorders, along with educational resources that may be accessed via the internet or through other literature
