Diabetes Through the Looking Glass: Seeing Diabetes from Your Child's Perspective

This product is not available in the selected currency.


A childhood diagnosis of Type 1 diabetes can be devastating for the whole family. Parents and children both worry for the future and how diabetes will affect their lives. For parents these concerns can be compounded by not fully understanding what your child is really going through.

Dr Rachel Besser, a paediatrician specialising in childhood diabetes, was herself diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes when she was a child. Through her work with families affected by diabetes, she realised that many parents are desperate to understand how it feels to live with the condition, and wonder what they can do to make their child's experience as positive and uncomplicated as possible.

Combining her own experience with interviews with children and adults who share their stories, Dr Besser provides an illuminating insight into what it feels like to grow up with diabetes.
