Diabetes affects an estimated 20 million people in the United States, with many people remaining unaware that they suffer from the disease. While the number of diabetics continues to rise, the number of caregivers who specialize in diabetes treatment does not. In Educating Your Patient with Diabetes, Katie Weinger and Catherine Carver assemble commentary from a panel of leading diabetes practitioners and researchers and put together a highly readable guide to supplying patients with diabetes with the information and ability to successfully cope with their disease. The authors and editors provide substantive data on successful models of diabetes education and the process of educating diabetes sufferers. Additional chapters discuss diabetes in pregnancy, the challenge of weight and diabetes management in clinical practice, and diabetes education in geriatric populations. Timely and accessible, Educating Your Patient with Diabetes is a must have for all diabetes educators, physician assistants, nurses, and endocrinologists who endeavor to support their patients' diabetes self-care efforts and help them maximize the opportunities for patient learning.

From the reviews: "This new book provides a basic overview of most aspects of diabetes education ... . The book is written for anyone who educates patients with diabetes. It appears to be a good option for those who would like to become certified diabetes educators or those who work in primary care offices. It is a good primer for the most up-to-date, basic information. ... It could be a good initial read for those who are interested in learning more about diabetes education." (Amy Hess-Fischl, Doody's Review Service, February, 2009) "This valuable monograph ... is discussing not only general principles and practices of diabetes education in the first part, but also the problems describing the education of specific populations. ... In conclusion, this monograph seems to collect several important problems on the education of diabetic patients and possibly appears one of very few professional books dealing with these important problems of daily practice." (Endocrine Regulations, November, 2009) "The authors address the 19 chapters to patients with all types of diabetes mellitus from children to adults and geriatric population. Separate chapters review diabetes and sexual relations, diabetes in pregnancy, as well as preventive education. A clearly written and referenced text. For practitioners, diabetologists and members of the diabetes team." (Pediatric Endocrinology Reviews, Vol. 7 (4), June, 2010)
