Response to my Type 1 Diabetes Article

Someone posted a response to my latest Library Detective article (“Library Books for Diabetes Awareness Month”) in the Chronicle Journal! They make a really good point – all of the Canadian Diabetes Association cookbooks have been updated and include the nutritional information for all of their recipes.

I recieved an email from the Canadian Diabetes Association in regards to this – I know Richard – prior to seeing the response in the Chronicle Journal. As I told him in my response, after he mentioned it I actually do remember seeing the nutritional information in their other books that were at Chapters. I’m just a rather picky eater, and wasn’t really interested in the other books, being quite happy with the Kids cookbook (which has easy recipes that anyone can enjoy). So that’s why I chose to highlight that book rather than their other cookbooks. But if you’re looking for other cookbooks with the nutritional information in them, be sure to check out the others by the Canadian Diabetes Association. The Thunder Bay Public Library is also going to get any of the ones we are missing.

“Library Books for Diabetes Awareness Month”

My fifth Library Detective column appeared in Thunder Bay’s local paper the Chronicle Journal today! November is Diabetes Awareness Month according to the Canadian Diabetes Association, so I thought that would make an excellent topic for my article. I knew right away that I wanted to focus on Type 1 diabetes rather than type 2 for the article; for those who don’t know, I have Type 1 diabetes, so the topic is rather dear to my heart. But because there is an epidemic of Type 2, I made sure to address that form of the disease a little bit as well. If you’re interested in reading the article, you can find it here on the Thunder Bay Public Library’s Library Detective blog.
