I Need A FICTIONAL book on Diabetes for a High School Sophomore Project Any Ideas?

I want to do a project on the topic of Insulin Dependent Diabetes but in following the rubric for the class I am required to also include a fictional book in my review of literature. The overall project is Problems in America & I chose Insulin Dependent Diabetes because its of interest to me & I want other people to also learn from me. Unfortunately, I can teach my teachers but first I need a fictional book. I have plenty of non-fictional books of course. Please Respond :)See More

Wondering other parents experience with having their endo rx a cgm for a pediatric client, i.e.: my 14 year old son

Posted on June 6, 2013 at 11:39am 1 Comment

I would like some input so to better prepare my request for a cgm. I understand cgms are not routinely rx'ed if <18 years old. I understand that if Jake had hypoglycemic episodes esp one(s) that required medical or another party interaction for his welfare, it would be less of an issue for him to be rx'ed a cgm.
