Product Overview

Rachel Gifford, nationally renowned diabetes educator and speaker, shares her story of living with diabetes from both sides of the exam table. A Gift in Wolf's Clothing begins when she diagnoses herself with her older sister's diabetes urine testing kit, and her initial reaction of, Death makes more sense than trying to live with this disease. Over time she arrives at the conclusion that if she cannot kill herself to escape diabetes, she'll have to learn how to live with it! Living with diabetes takes her into a career of helping people with diabetes to hopefully, have an easier time of it than she did. This is a story of adventurous learning, that will bring you to tears, make you laugh out loud, and help you find your own spirit of tenacity in dealing with the Wolves life may have brought your way. Reading A Gift in Wolf's Clothing has made me a better doctor...
