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.

  • Understanding diabetes-Learn what diabetes is and isn't, how the condition affects the body, and how your role as caregiver fits in.
  • Relatable stories-Read examples of real situations you might encounter as a diabetes caregiver.
  • What to do, say, and ask-Explore questions to ask your healthcare provider, and get suggestions for what to do and say in specific situations, like if your loved one is having trouble managing their blood sugar or medication side effects.

Attend to your own needs while being a supportive diabetes caregiver with help from this compassionate guide.

"As a registered dietitian and someone living with type 1 diabetes, Amanda is a true expert who understands the nuances of diabetes care. The Caregiver's Guide to Diabetes is a must for anyone looking to learn how to provide exceptional care for their loved one. Amanda walks you through all components of blood sugar management including diet, medication, and financial considerations, providing a comprehensive approach that is both evidence-based and practical for everyday life." -Dione Milauskas, MS, RDN, prediabetes nutrition

"Amanda combines her personal experience of living with type 1 diabetes and her professional expertise as a registered dietitian in this go-to resource. The Caregiver's Guide to Diabetes is a must-read for anyone living with or caring for someone with diabetes." -Mary Ellen Phipps, MPH, RDN, LD, author of The Easy Diabetes Cookbook

"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
