Overview

Winner of ‘First Prize' in the Endocrinology Category of the 2005 BMA Medical Book Competition.

Judges’ summary of the book:
“The coverage of the biochemistry of diabetes is excellent. This is mandatory reading for all clinicians involved with diabetes and also a must for many expert patients.”

The Handbook of Diabetes is now in its third edition and continues to grow in popularity as an essential manual for all healthcare professionals involved in the treatment of patients with diabetes. As a concise reference book, the contents are edited and rewritten from Pickup & Williams' Textbook of Diabetes (Third Edition).

This new edition has been extensively revised and updated, and is richly illustrated throughout in full color. Handbook of Diabetes, Third Edition, contains a wealth of clinical wisdom against a backdrop of clinical science that will be of help to every member of the diabetes care team.

The book contains predominantly color illustrations, with some black-and-white illustrations.
