Books about diabetes matter to the CWD community. Books provide the information and the tool sets we need to make pump adjustments, healthy recipes, and decisions about our medical care. Books show us people with diabetes as the heroes, the scientists, the teachers, the athletes, the change-makers, and these narratives help shape the way we view this health condition.

Here at CWD, we've taken years to cultivate and curate a very special library, filled with stories and science that lift us up and keep us informed. These books are the ones we keep on our staff bookshelves and recommend to our friends. These are the stories we trust to keep us moving forward. Check out our CWD library, peruse the bookshelves, and please reach out if you have a dog-eared diabetes favorite that you'd like us to include.

Featured Book

Not the Worst Thing Ever
Not the Worst Thing Ever!: A Gross, Giggly Guide to Dealing with Diabetes

Gillian King-Cargile

This book is gross. Like really gross. You probably shouldn’t read it if you gag easily. But you probably should read it if you are looking for ways to ease worries during your diabetes care routine.

It turns out that there are a lot of things that are way worse than checking blood sugar, getting a shot, changing an insulin pump infusion site, and changing a continuous glucose monitor. As the old saying goes, taking care of your diabetes is a lot better than getting pooped out by a great white shark.

With laugh-out-loud lines by Gillian King-Cargile and delightfully disgusting illustrations by Shawn Turek, this feel-better diabetes book will reassure readers that getting (or giving) a little poke is not the worst thing ever!
