Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
Reviewer:Amy Hess-Fischl, MS, RD, DN, BC-ADM, CDE(University of Chicago Medical Center)
Description:This is a thorough review of hypoglycemia and how it relates to the care and treatment of people with diabetes. The new edition incorporates more practical information regarding risk factors and treatment, especially pertaining to the type 2 population. The first edition was published in 1999.
Purpose:The purpose is to provide a thorough overview of hypoglycemia and its clinical significance to those who live with diabetes. This is a topic important to all healthcare professionals who work with patients with diabetes. The authors achieve the objectives with ease, incorporating useful information in all the chapters along with practical information to share with those who live with diabetes.
Audience:The book is written for all healthcare professionals who manage patients with diabetes, but it would be useful for interns, residents, and nursing students to gain a better understanding of hypoglycemia. Given that the authors were involved in the first edition, they are credible authorities and chose worthy authors for the chapters.
Features:The book begins with an excellent review of normal responses to hypoglycemia, setting the stage for an in-depth review of all aspects of hypoglycemia. Of particular interest, each chapter ends with bullet points of practical information that readers use with patients with diabetes. These bullet points reiterate the items practitioners should focus on with patients. The most practical chapter for use with patients is chapter 14, Living with Hypoglycaemia, which does an excellent job ofdiscussing driving and other important topics for people with diabetes. There are sufficient tables and figures in each chapter, enhancing the text without detracting from the overall message. Obviously, new information is published regularly, but this is the most up-to-date available regarding hypoglycemia.
Assessment:There are a plethora of books on hypoglycemia for the general population, with varying usefulness. For healthcare professionals, there is only one other textbook of value, Hypoglycemia: Pathophysiology, Diagnosis, and Treatment, Cryer (Oxford University Press, 1997). Due to its age and the fact that there is only one chapter devoted to diabetes, it is far more outdated than even the previous edition of this book. This second edition adds more updated research as well as more practical information for healthcare professionals.
