The Diabetic Child and Young Adult, by Dr Mimi M. Belmonte, will be a welcome addition to the library of families who have children with type 1 diabetes mellitus. The table of contents is well organized and the index is well done. All sections of the book are well written; particularly helpful are the sections on control of diabetes and on tests to evaluate diabetic control. The glossary of terms is especially helpful to nonprofessionals.
This book is a welcome addition to previous discussions of this chronic and complicated illness of infants, children, and young adults.
