Reported in last week’s news is the fact that diabetes is on the rise, and the number of patients without insurance coverage for it or with inadequate insurance is steadily increasing as well. The insulin pump, the best treatment, is unavailable to many. Our library has a great book for people living with this condition, Understanding Diabetes: a handbook for people who are living with diabetes. Published in 2006 and updated every few years, its 300+ pages are packed with information on all aspects of management. It is available for loan. In addition, the State of Colorado’s Diabetes Prevention and Control Program website has information for researchers as well as patients. Many of the publications throughout this site can be borrowed from our library.
