About this book

Diabetes and hypertension have evolved as two of the modern day epidemics affecting millions of people around the world. These two common co-morbidities lead to substantial increase in cardiovascular disease, the major cause of morbidity and mortality of adults around the world.  In Diabetes and Hypertension: Evaluation and Management, a panel of renowned experts address a range of critical topics -- from basic concepts in evaluation and management of diabetes and hypertension, such as dietary interventions, to evaluation and management of secondary hypertension in clinical practice. Other chapters focus on high cardiovascular risk populations such as those with coronary heart disease, chronic kidney disease and minority patients.  In addition, evolving concepts and new developments in the field are presented in other chapters, such as prevention of type 2 diabetes and the epidemic of sleep apnea and its implication for diabetes and hypertension evaluation and management.  An important title covering two of the most troubling disorders of our time, Diabetes and Hypertension: Evaluation and Management will provide the busy practitioner with cutting edge knowledge in the field as well as practical information that can translate into better care provided to the high-risk population of diabetics and hypertensive patients.

Reviews

From the reviews:

“Every chapter of this book provides interesting and important information regarding risk factors, treatment and causes of hypertension and type 2 diabetes … . The chapters present expert knowledge and certainly bring any reader up-to-date with latest management strategies and epidemiological data. I recommend this book to those readers who have a special interest in diabetes and hypertension.” (Heinz Tilenius, Australian Family Physician, Vol. 42 (5), May, 2013)

“This book provides practicing clinicians with cutting-edge knowledge in the field as well as practical information on the management of this high-risk population. … All practicing clinicians would find some value in this book, especially endocrinologists, cardiologists and general internal practitioners. … This is an excellent source of definitive, state-of-the-art answers on various aspects of diabetes and hypertension.” (Alex Briasoulis, Doody’s Book Reviews, December, 2012)
