I have been type 1 for 20 years and on a pump for 36 days now! This book was very informative. I could relate to much of the material since I have been diabetic for so long. Since going on a pump, I could relate easily to her pump related advice.

A excellant read for anyone new to a pump or considering it. Just because I have been diabetic for 20 years insures me of nothing. Pump therapy is very different compared to anything else. Informative books such as this one are essential to improving and educating each one of us.

I strongly recommend this book.

I just received my insulin pump. There are so many questions I had and the doctor, although helpful, did not have the time to answer questions I thought of after my visit. Gabrielle had most all of the answers and more info that I hadn't thought of before. The ease of use and plain, simple language made learning what I had to do much less a task than I feared.

Thank you, Gabrielle, for a much needed guide to this transition to a new and better way of combating diabetes.

Typos were not necessary.
A1cs showed up as Ales. Not the same at all. I don't drink. A real diabetic knows what the author means, but I shouldn't have to interpret. Otherwise good info in this book, glad I read it.

As described

I really needed some help on how others handled pump therapy. (My daughter was already on it) This book gave me some websites that are helpful as well as other nuggets of information, including carb counting. This book would be very helpful to someone considering pump therapy.

I've been a Type 1 (IDDM) diabetic for over 15 years. I was lucky in the sense that I didn't get it until college, so I didn't have to deal with it as a child. However, diabetes at any age is tough. The insulin dependent kind in particular is tough because no amount of exercise or weight loss is going to reverse it. However, there is one thing that can come close, insulin pump therapy.

I'm now in my late 30s and my diabetes was getting much more difficult to control. I decided to seriously consider pump therapy. I knew a bit about it but not much. This book has made me an insulin pumping pro and helped me put any fears I had into perspective.

I bought this book because I wanted to hear about pumping from another diabetic who was using an insulin pump. Gabrielle Kaplan-Meyer does a great job of making pumping easy to understand and gives someone considering pumping clear facts. There are many issues to consider and having a clear guide helps tremendously.

Kaplan-Mayer gives you the facts in stories. The stories come from her own life or from interviews with other insulin pumping diabetics. Those help you relate and gives you what you need to make a good decision. At the end of each chapter she has a checklist highlighting important things to remember. That makes it easy to take in and easy to refer back to, if needed.

I even took the book to the hospital with me when checked in to get my new pump. It came in handy during my first few days and when I had some worries, I could quickly refer back to it for information. I've even loaned to a friend so he can learn more about what I have to deal with.

I would highly recommend this book to any diabetic considering pumping.

I would only recommend this book to someone who has never even heard the word "insulin pump." And doesn't plan on going on it. This book was laughably bad. I appreciate that other people have been helped by it, but the advice consisted primarily of denial of issue. You are worried about body image and the pump? Don't! You'll feel better on the pump! You're worried about fashion and wearing the pump? Don't- it's easy! Are you worried that it will effect sex? Don't be worried- it doesn't! I've been on the pump for about a month and was hoping to find ways to make my life smoother with the pump. There's no advice here you wouldn't get from a pump website or salesperson.
Gabrielle brings both a professional and a personal perspective to demystifyiing the insulin pump. This is a resource for every physician's book shelf to share with patients. All parents of children diagnosed with Juvenile diabetes need to own this book. The options for a fuller life that the pump gives to people with diabetes is highlighted in this book. The book, by demystifying the pump, greatly reduces the fear often associated with use of the pump. A book of this sort is long overdue. Kudos to Gabrielle and Gary!
