About this book

Diabetes is a major public health problem in the United States. This collection, Diabetes and Exercise, discusses the extent of the problem of diabetes and sedentary lifestyle and presents a compelling rationale for the importance of increased physical activity and exercise in persons with diabetes. The concept of exercise as medicine has a strong but underappreciated scientific basis for the prevention and treatment of diabetes. Diabetes and Exercise, compiled by a team of experts in the field, focuses on both the physiological and practical aspects of the beneficial effects of exercise. This thorough collaboration provides the why's and how's to implementing the physical activity and exercise changes so important in diabetes prevention and disease management.

Reviews

From the reviews:

"This new book not only emphasizes how to make use of exercise but also why. … The contributors develop the many benefits of exercise for the diabetic including effects on insulin metabolism, on endothelial dysfunction, on inflammation, on adiposity, on fatty liver, and on fat distribution as well as to provide guidelines for safe application of exercise in clinical situations." (William H. Wehrmacher, Comprehensive Therapy, June, 2009)

“This book addresses exercise and diabetes in an organized, thoughtful fashion, including epidemiology, physiology, and treatment. … The importance of exercise in the development and treatment of type 2 diabetes is a crucial topic and I am very glad to see a book that addresses it. Diabetes researchers and clinicians are the intended audience. … The organization of the book makes it easy to read and reference topics of interest. This is a clinically useful book.” (Suma Dronavalli, Doody’s Review Service, July, 2009)

“Part of the Series Contemporary Diabetes, this volume is divided into 4 parts. … Mainly for adult diabetologists, but also pediatric endocrinologists who treat children with Type 2 diabetes.” (Pediatric Endocrinology Reviews, Vol. 7 (4), June, 2010)

“The messages in this book are not confined to persons with diabetes; a much broader population is at risk for diabetes and its related high possibility for cardiovascular disease. … Diabetes and Exercise is a useful reference about an important health issue. There is much valuable information in this book, and it will be of great interest to a wide variety of health professionals.” (John A. Colwell, Journal of the American Medical Association, December, 2010)
