The new fourth edition of this book is a readable, short, concise explanation and approach to insulin-requiring diabetes. Though it is written predominately for the teenager, it will be of considerable help to the parents of a young diabetic.

The book stresses that the diabetic patient can live a "normal" life, and this can be accomplished by following a simple system of good health care.
