The probability of diabetic complications and their progression has been greatly reduced by the implementation of improved screening techniques, modern treatment regimens and enhanced education programmes. This new, fully revised edition of Diabetes - Chronic Complications comprehensively reviews current evidence-based best practice to tackle these complications. It describes the nature of the complications, how susceptibility and risk can be identified, the importance of screening during the early stages and the manner in which appropriate investigation and management should be undertaken. Chapters are written by experienced clinicians in the field of diabetes and the emphasis is on practical management and delivery of care.
Keeping up with modern day practical approaches to the management of diabetic complications, the greatest burden of this common disease, is difficult. There are many varied sources of information; extracting relevant material from large reference text books can be time consuming, taking away from clinical care. The concise, practical approach taken within each chapter of this book provides the reader with easy-to-read, up-to-date guidance on the management of diabetes complications.
This book is essential reading for all those working with people who have diabetes, whether doctors, nurse specialists or allied health workers.
