Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
If you want concise, encompassing information on diabetes, this book does it with an intense, yet impressive style ... It is full of excellent key points, graphs, subtitles and further reading ... a very good book.
Review of previous edition in Nursing Standard, January 2002

4 Stars: Excellent resource for healthcare professionals in diabetes
Thorough, up to date and well organised. A must for those who need to know more about Type 2 Diabetes. The chapters cover the main areas well and have highlighted boxes to denote the main points. There is also a quick reference section which answers most health care professionals immediate queries. Invaluable for Practice Nurses, GPs, and Hospital Doctors. A useful tool for those with more specialist diabetes knowledge.
