Reviews

"Highs & Lows of Type 1 Diabetes addresses all the major challenges I see my patients with T1D face on a daily basis. The advice given is thought-out and practical, and it comes from a place of intimate experience. Patrick, a patient of mine since he was twelve years old, has done an unbelievable job creating an understandable and relatable resource for teens and young adults with T1D."
-Dr. William Tamborlane, MD, pediatric endocrinologist at Yale Medicine
"Patrick has created a wonderful resource for a broad audience. He covers a range of diabetes-related topics with a balance of practical knowledge and humor, and makes his own experiences accessible to young teens and emerging adults alike. . . . He sends the important message that it is okay to accept and embrace the support of others, and equally important to educate others about how they can best offer this support. I found reading Patrick's book to be like having a conversation with him. It is as upbeat, reassuring, and hopeful . . . . Hats off to Patrick for creating a book that empowers teens and young adults to be strategically open about their diabetes, and active in living with it knowing that they do not have to be alone while learning to be on their own.
-Jodie Ambrosino, PhD, Yale Medicine
"Patrick puts great information into a format that is useful and understandable for high school and college age students. He shares interesting personal stories as well as important tips in many different situations. I highly recommend this book for all young adults living with Type 1 Diabetes. Well done, Patrick!"
