The Challenge of Childhood Diabetes


By: dhtest

After author Laura Plunkett’s seven-year-old son, Danny, was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes, she felt engulfed by anxiety and overwhelmed by the challenges of his care.

Her book chronicles the road she and her family traveled to regain a sense of peace and normalcy, as well as their quest to control Danny’s diabetes by using a whole grain, lower-carb diet.

This is a sympathetic and informative guidebook describing the period of adjustment to a youngster’s chronic diabetes. For any reader who’s feeling distraught and alone in the first months, or even years, of a child’s diagnosis with type 1, the book will serve as a knowledgeable friend. For more information, visit
