by Bob Flaws, Lynn M. Kuchinski, Robert Casaanas, Robert Casanas

Editorial Reviews

This text presents clinical information on the Chinese treatment of diabetes mellitus and its many complications. Flaws and Kuchinski, who are Western medical experts, present 19 chapters that discuss the history and causes of the illness; commonly used Chinese medicinal formulas, treatment, diet and exercise; gestational and hepatogenic diabetes; complications (hypertension, retinopathy, arteriosclerosis, etc.); psychological disturbances; patient adherence and practitioner monitoring; and integrating Chinese and Western medicines. Following discussion by Robert J. Casañas, M.D. of each medical condition in terms of its Western medical definition, epidemiology, etiology, pathophysiology, diagnosis, current standards of care, and prognosis, material drawn from Chinese medical journals describes disease categorization, causes and mechanisms, treatment based on pattern discrimination, representative Chinese research, and case histories. Concluding remarks address clinical tips and concerns. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
