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.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Stelios Mantis, MD (University of Chicago Medical Center)
Description: In his effort to provide general medical practitioners with detailed strategies for dealing with type 1 diabetic patients, the author has come up with a brief yet descriptive book with sufficient information on the diagnosis, management, pathophysiology, and complications in these patients.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide a short and contemporary book on type 1 diabetes. It successfully stresses the importance of maintaining good glycemic control in these patients and is very helpful in detailing strategies about how to achieve euglycemia as well.
Audience: Although the author clearly states there are chapters pertinent for endocrine subspecialists in-training as well as for general medical students, it is clear the book is intended to educate and inform those in general medical practice about new strategies and complications in dealing with type 1 diabetic patients.
Features: The most detailed and focused chapters include a description of the consequences of longstanding disease and its affect on patients, from both a micro and macro molecular perspective. The book gives a detailed analysis of the pathophysiology of these complications in a very understandable manner. Current resources are the basis of the up-to-date guidelines for treatment. An extensive list of references and a list of suggested readings at the end of every chapter guide the reader looking for further detail.
Assessment: The author cleverly provides key points at the beginning of each chapter and achieves the goal of offering current literary evidence for the highlighted themes. This gives readers the opportunity to preview each chapter and look for more detail on these key points. This makes the book not only user friendly, but a good book to use as a quick reference at a moment's notice.
