Overview

While Type 1 diabetes is still predominantly a hospital-based specialty, increasing numbers of patients are being supervised in primary care. This book emphasises both the unique nature of Type 1 diabetes and its fundamental differences from Type 2 diabetes (at least in its 'classic' form), and also draws together the common threads of management - especially in the diagnosis and treatment of microvascular complications, its common coexistence with the insulin resistance syndrome, and the importance of late-onset Type 1 diabetes in older patients.
This highly practical volume in the Oxford Diabetes Library is intended for all advanced practitioners in primary and secondary care. Wherever it is available, the limited RCT evidence base for practice in Type 1 diabetes is quoted and put into a practical context.
