Care for yourself while caring for a loved one with diabetes
Taking care of someone with diabetes can be tiring and emotionally draining at times. As a caregiver, you may overlook your own health and well-being because you're so focused on your loved one. This book helps empower you to be an attentive caregiver for your friend or family member with diabetes-while also taking good care of yourself.
Give your loved one the support they need with guidance for everything from medications and treatments to financial and legal decisions. You'll also find practical advice for meeting your own physical and emotional needs, and dealing with the unique challenges you face as a caregiver.
Attend to your own needs while being a supportive diabetes caregiver with help from this compassionate guide.

"A must-read! The Caregiver's Guide to Diabetes fills a void in the diabetes world. I have never seen a book so thoroughly written that considers the perspective of a caregiver for a person living with diabetes. Amanda has the credentials to write about the topic but more importantly, she lives with type 1 diabetes herself. She has learned firsthand what it takes to care for someone living with diabetes." -Leslee Flannery, RDN, CLC, creator of The Better Blood Sugar Method for Gestational Diabetes
