A Guide to Type 1 Diabetes Management, Technology, and Everything Else You Need to Know
In just a decade, Type 1 diabetes management has evolved, and advanced technology has become more widely available as part of routine self-management. This book fills a gap in discussing the complexities of emerging diabetes technology such as insulin pumps, closed-loop systems and continuous glucose monitoring. It also provides essential resources and advice to enable successful self-management of Type 1 diabetes.
