The "case study" approach is one of the most used and most effective formats to present medical information and is the foundation for developing evidence-based treatment protocols. Compiled and edited by one of the world's best known clinical endocrinologists, Boris Draznin, MD, PhD, Diabetes Case Studies offers more than 100 actual cases from leading diabetologists, outlining both typical and unusual diabetes cases. Each study will illustrate real life dilemmas with a discussion as to how the diagnostic and therapeutic approaches were selected and implemented, through a thorough, yet succinct, presentation of the problems, the diagnoses, treatment protocols, and results. Readers will have practical information to use when treating their diabetic patients.
