Books for Type 1 diabetes and insulin pumps

March 16, 2012

I’ll preface my recommendations stating up front that I am an Omnipod pump user and a Dexcom CGM user, though I do often take breaks from both and give myself a vacation by going back to multiple-daily injections (MDI regimen).

That being said, the following books have been instrumental for me to try and grasp the complexity of emulating the behavior of my malfunctioning pancreas either with devices (CGM/pump) or insulin injections and plain old finger-sticks, the first on pancreatic functioning and management with insulin, the last two on insulin pumping (Walsh’s book is an encyclopedia of knowledge for pumping insulin):

I hope this is useful/helpful reading for any of you looking for helpful guides to our disease.
