Description: This book uses the most up-to-date data and research to discuss how to approach clinically challenging situations in caring for patients with diabetes mellitus.
Purpose: The purpose is to discuss difficult clinical problems faced by all physicians who care for these patients, including those aspects of diabetes care that are not specifically addressed in standard guidelines. Clinicians who care for patients with diabetes need evidence-based guidance to effectively treat them and any associated complications.
Audience: Practitioners in primary care and beginning students of endocrinology are the intended audience.
Features: The book covers the diagnosis and management of prediabetes, diabetes, and associated risk factors, and specifically addresses commonly encountered clinical questions. Each chapter is devoted to a specific question. The book is succinct and makes effective use of data and diabetes trials to logically discuss clinical dilemmas of diabetes care.
Assessment: This is most useful for practitioners who care for many diabetes patients. It is also useful for students in endocrinology who are learning the many complicated aspects of diabetes care.
