- Shelby Anderson Kinnaird, author of Diabetes Slow Cooker Cookbook: Recipes for Balanced Meals and Healthy Living

"Back when I started in the diabetes and exercise world, examples of athletes with type 1 diabetes were few and far between. Since the advent of technologies that help people monitor and manage blood glucose levels, the number of athletes succeeding and excelling with diabetes has increased vastly, and many people with diabetes will be inspired by these stories."

- Drs. Steve Edelman and Jeremy Pettus, Taking Control Of Your Diabetes 501c3

"Winning with Diabetes is an ingenious exploration of how elite athletes with diabetes succeed in sports and in life. The authors deftly weave important medical information into the narratives of the athletes themselves, so readers—regardless of their own athletic pursuits or interests—emerge with a deeper understanding of all aspects of diabetes. The stories of the athletes themselves show that diabetes was often not so much a hindrance to their performance but an asset to their success. You will come away from Winning with Diabetes enlightened, encouraged, and inspired."
