About this book

This handbook is an invaluable resource for improving the management of diabetes. Chapters cover the fundamentals, including epidemiology, history and physical examination, and functional evaluations. Diabetes in children, adolescents, adults, and geriatrics are addressed. Differential diagnosis is emphasized, and evidence-based guidelines and patient-specific considerations aid the reader with injury evaluation and care. Notably, the book highlights the importance of understanding diabetic symptoms when determining the source of illnesses. In addition, the text presents the spectrum of treatment options for diabetes. The book is complete with appendices that explain the evidence-based approach used throughout and the science behind therapeutic modalities.

Reviews

From the reviews of the fourth edition:

“This is a comprehensive overview of diabetes and its associated complications. … This updated edition is helpful because knowledge about diabetes is changing rapidly. … It is intended for healthcare providers who take care of patients with diabetes or who are interested in learning more about diabetes. It would also be useful for students and residents. With the excellent graphics and pictures, the atlas will be especially appealing to visual learners. … will be most useful to readers interested in diabetes who are visual learners.” (Rebecca L. Brown, Doody’s Review Service, May, 2012)

“The reader will be impressed by the breadth, scope and sophistication of basic and clinical research that exists in the field of diabetes. It is apparent that major advances have been made in the understanding of the disease and its management. … For readers interested in the state of present knowledge about diabetes and its complications, Atlas of Diabetes is highly recommended.” (John A. Colwell, Journal of the American Medical Association, Vol. 308 (10), September, 2012)
