Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Rebecca Brown, MD (University of Chicago Medical Center)
Description: This is an information-dense but readable book about all aspects of diabetic complications. It includes commonly discussed issues such as eye disease and kidney disease, but it also delves into lesser known complications such as mental health and oral health. Previous editions were published in 1996 and 2005.
Purpose: According to the editors, the purpose is to provide up-to-date science and guidance about the pathophysiology and management of a wide array of diabetic complications. Given the diabetic epidemic we face, this is a worthy objective.
Audience: The book is appropriate for all health providers who care for individuals with diabetes, which includes internists, family practitioners, and subspecialists as well as housestaff officers and students.
Features: Each chapter focuses on a particular complication of diabetes, although the editors acknowledge that complications do not typically occur in isolation. The best chapters focus on less-discussed diabetic complications, especially liver disease, sexual health, and brain dysfunction. The book has many figures and pictures, but all are in black and white; color would enhance the appearance.
Assessment: This book provides well-referenced, up-to-date information about diabetic complications and, although this data is available from other sources, it provides it in a readable format. Given that the science related to diabetes is changing rapidly, a new edition is justified.
