Book Review: Think Like a Pancreas by Gary Scheiner, MS, RD

This is one in a series of book reviews. You may find these books beneficial if you: manage prediabetes or diabetes, follow a diabetes meal plan and/or try to eat healthy to live well. These book reviews also appear on The books can be found in my amazon a-store. Please check them out and consider a purchase.

I was excited to get my hot off the press copy of the new and improved (2nd edition) of Think Like a Pancreas: A Practical Guide to Managing Diabetes with Insulin written by, in my humble opinion, one of the go to experts today for people with diabetes who take insulin, Gary Scheiner, MS, CDE. What I love about Gary (yes, I'm a member of his fan club), is that he is tremendously knowledgeable and at the same time extremely practical. In his down-to-earth approach he offers a plethora of innovative out-of-the-box tips for taking care of the everyday, literal and figurative, ups and downs of diabetes using insulin.

A big plus of Think Like a Pancreas is Gary’s writing style. It’s easy-to-read in part because he dovetails his dry wit and fun-loving personality to make, what’s dry as a bone material, into a page turner.
