From The CriticsReviewer: Randall S. Kuhlmann, MD, PhD (Medical College of Wisconsin)
Description: This is the second edition of the "classic" work pertaining to managing diabetes in pregnancy at the Joslin Clinic.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide the practitioner caring for the pregnant diabetic with a manual containing information used in managing these patients. These objectives are worthy in that many hospitals, some HMOs, and other organizations do not have a perinatologist (or a diabetologist) on staff for pertinent consultation and treatment. The book more than addresses the authors' objectives concerning diabetes and pregnancy.
Audience: The book is written for the resident, fellow, and practitioner of obstetrics. It has been updated by very credible authors with expertise in diabetes and pregnancy.
Features: The book is appropriately illustrated with tables. The references have been updated since the previous edition. The chapters address the pertinent clinical aspects of diabetes and pregnancy.
Assessment: This book is a wonderful tool I have used myself as a resident, fellow, and practitioner of maternal-fetal medicine. The updates in this new edition make it top quality for dealing with diabetes and pregnancy. This book should be made available in medical bookstores and libraries.
