Diabetes is one of the commonest chronic conditions of childhood, and is on the increase. It is estimated that globally more than 400,000 children aged 14 and under have diabetes; in England and Wales about 15 per 100,000 children develop diabetes each year, and in Scotland 25 per 100,000. More than 90% of affected children have type 1 diabetes.

A diagnosis of diabetes is a trauma for a family. This book aims to help families through this and is aimed at parents, and at teenagers who want to know more about their condition. It could also be valuable for healthcare workers and teachers. It gives a detailed explanation of the control of blood sugar and diabetes, and how diabetes is monitored and controlled by means of diet and insulin.
