Reviews - What do customers think about On Wings and Prayers: Living with Diabetes One Sugar at a Time?

A Slave To My Condition!  Mar 1, 2003
Wow! Let's talk about being enslaved to a disease process! It's a wonder this guy has enough energy to deal with his daily routine, not to mention all of his secondary problems! This is a very intimidating and inaccurate account of daily life as an Insulin Dependent Diabetic. The author, who I know, is a Type 2 or non-insulin dependent diabetic, who for some reason believes she knows exactly how to approach life as a Type 1 Diabetic. Her portrayal of this young man and his disease process, would scare most Type 1 diabetics into a stress driven diabetic coma!! I am a Type 1 Diabetic, now for 30 years, and I would not recommend this book to any of my friends, or my Patients! That's correct, I said my Patients! I am a very successful and well respected Physician Assistant, and I have dedicated my practice to caring for Diabetic individuals. I personally did not appreciate the Authors attempt at degrading the PA profession on page 322 of the book, by making the PA appear negligent in missing the diagnosis of Diabetic Ketoacidosis. This was in extremely poor taste!! Personally, I would not suggest this book to any Diabetic individual or family member, due to the fear that it would produce, in regards to glucose management. I'm sorry Dr. Jerkins, but my Glycohemoglobin is 6.0, and I don't recall the last time I had a glucose tablet or felt the need to test my glucose some 12 to 15 times per day! The story line, by the way, is fairly exciting. Thus the rating of 2 stars instead of 1.
The best book on diabetes I have read  Oct 6, 2001
This book makes it easy to understand all the intricacies of diabetes.I recomend this book for anyone who has or knows someone with diabetes.On a scale of one to ten,I give this an eleven.A must read.
