Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Carol Touma, M.D.(University of Chicago Medical Center)
Description: This abbreviated summary of guidelines for treatment of patients with type 1 and type 2 diabetes is small in size and easy to keep on hand for quick questions. It uniquely includes a section on medications, not just those used to treat diabetes and its complications, but also common medications that can raise blood sugars, for example. Another section discusses the interpretation of potential laboratory tests that could be helpful in this patient population.
Purpose: This is intended as a concise, up-to-date, and practical guide for busy healthcare providers caring for patients with type 1 and type 2 diabetes. A book with easily accessible current guidelines for important clinical questions is extremely useful, given the increasing population of diabetics in clinics. This book meets its goals and is a helpful tool for all caregivers of diabetics.
Audience: This is a great resource for all levels of caregivers of diabetic patients, as it is important for nurses-in-training as well as physicians with many years of experience to maintain current with the ever-changing guidelines. The authors are experts in their field of diabetes or one of the many diabetes complications.
Features: The book concisely covers recent studies, guidelines, and options for managing diabetes type 1 and 2. It is up to date yet abbreviated, creating a quick resource for clinical decision-making. A unique feature is the section with dosing, pharmacokinetics, and adverse reactions of many medications commonly used in patients with diabetes.
Assessment: This is an up-to-date, evidence-based, abbreviated guide to caring for diabetic patients. I will refer to it often as it is comprehensive and pocket-sized.
