Overview

This Book Will Be Essential for All Endocrinologists, Diabetologists, Pediatricians, and Internists Treating "Childhood" Diabetes Patients. This volume brings together an international panel of experts who review the state-of-the-art in the discovery and application of knowledge relative to Type I diabetes mellitus, including its etiology and current approaches to therapy. It provides an overview of the disease process from its beginnings at the level of molecular genetic predisposition, to its manifestations at the total clinical level. This valuable information can be used to treat the disease in all of its manifestations, including future directions to predict, prevent and to cure. Type I Diabetes: Etiology and Treatment provides a framework for future investigation for basic and clinical scientists and fellows involved in this field and will be of interest to pediatric endocrinologists, diabetologists, pediatricians, internists, and family physicians.
