Editorial Reviews

Doody Reviews
Reviewer: Vincent F Carr, DO, MSA, FACC, FACP (Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences)
Description: This is a comprehensive guide for primary care clinicians and diabetes educators on the pathophysiology of diabetes and how to diagnose and treat patients with diabetes and how to approach common situations such as diabetes in pregnancy, children, and older adults. This is an update of a 2007 edition.
Purpose: It is designed as a desk reference with practical answers to everyday considerations in diabetes treatment, down to very practical patient education figures on how to draw insulin from the bottle, and how to mix insulin in a syringe as necessary. The author and contributor are world-class clinicians in the treatment of diabetes.
Audience: This is an extraordinary book for all who treat or know someone with diabetes. Living up to its title, this is a comprehensive guide written in a way that can be understood by physicians, diabetes educators, and patients. This is a difficult task and the contributors, who clearly treat patients and are faced with the task of explaining diabetes and its treatment, have given us a book valuable beyond words.
Features: It begins by looking at the pathophysiology and moves on to address specific areas of interest, children, pregnant patients, the elderly, those with concomitant diagnoses, where the research in diabetes is currently moving, patient education, and specific complications affecting the eyes, feet, and nervous and cardiovascular systems.
Assessment: This is an outstanding book that is well worth adding to one's personal library.
