    Hi,

    my daughter is 23 and is using an insulin pump. she got diabetes when she was twelve, and I am discovering I don't know enough about the disease. Can anyone recommend a good book that is up to date on the latest regarding living with type 1, pumps, correcting highs, etc.

    There are 2 books that most of us find very helpful. One is "Think Like a Pancreas" by Scheiner (I think) and the other is "Pumping Insulin" by Walsh. They come highly recommended. I liked Pumping Insulin, but haven't read the other. I've heard it's good.
