In Clinical Research in Diabetes and Obesity a premier panel of internationally recognized clinical scientists offer an unprecedented compilation of state-of-the-art advances in clinical research on diabetes and obesity. This first volume, on Methods, Assessment, and Metabolic Regulation, critically reviews the limitations and strengths of today's major techniques in clinical diabetes research, and then reviews how those methods have been used to carry out cutting-edge studies of carbohydrate, lipid, and protein metabolism in the disease. The second volume, Diabetes and Obesity, builds on this information by describing how alterations in these normal processes lead to the metabolic syndromes that we associate with obesity and noninsulin-dependent diabetes mellitus.
Clinical Research in Diabetes and Obesity presents in its two wide-ranging volumes not only all of today's cutting-edge in vivo techniques, but also details approaches to elucidating the pathophysiology of these diseases, and sheds light on the latest therapeutic modalities. Its comprehensive overview of the regulation of carbohydrate, protein, and lipid metabolism in diabetic and nondiabetic humans will prove an especially valuable contribution both to clinical science and to the care of people suffering from obesity and diabetes.
