Author Kerri Sparling and Spry Publishing today announced the release of Balancing Diabetes: Conversations about finding happiness and living well. The book will be published on March 4, 2014. In Balancing Diabetes, diabetes online community blogger Kerri Sparling compiles strategies used by people with diabetes and their caregivers to bring balance into their lives. A large part of living well is figuring out how to balance diabetes with the intricacies of a life outside of diabetes care. With a wide range of topics Kerri compiles strategies used by people with diabetes and their caregivers to inspire us through their own adventure of growing up with diabetes. The book is a heartfelt collection of stories about the challenges and rewards of becoming an adult with diabetes.

Jeff Hitchcock, Founder & President of Children with Diabetes had this to say about Balancing Diabetes: “There are many medical books on how to manage type 1, but there are precious few books on what is much more important – how to live a full, happy life with type 1 diabetes. With Balancing Diabetes, Kerri Sparling reaches out to the real experts – people living with type 1 diabetes – to bring perspective to the challenges of living well with type 1 diabetes. It is in th e wisdom of these experts that we come to realize, as Kerri so eloquently reminds us, ‘Life with diabetes isn’t about the diabetes itself, but about the life of which it’s a part.’”

Kerri Sparling is currently available for interviews in print, television, radio and online media. She is a highly engaging, experienced interviewee who is qualified to talk on a wide range of topics, including parenting, marriage, diabetes, health activism, blogging, writing, and volunteerism.
