From the Author:

I have worked with children and adolescents with diabetes up to the age of 25 for more than 15 years now and I have learned a lot from them through the years. I have collected all my experience in this book and my aim has been to publish a book that is equally readable by persons/parents with diabetes and professionals. When we have the same source of knowledge we can easily share each others thoughts and ideas. I have found it essential that there is scientific evidence behind recommendations and guidelines. Therefore the book contains more than 400 references for further reading. Although I am a pediatrician I have adapted the text to address also the issues of adults with type 1 diabetes.

Sometimes in this book I speak directly to you, the person with diabetes, and sometimes I address your family or parents. At other times there is even information for third parties, like the diabetes team members. When you are reading this book, just imagine that we are all together, sitting around a table, discussing diabetes. Remember that you run your own life - don't let your diabetes take over! Instead you can learn how to handle your diabetes in the different situations that life has to offer.
