About this book

With over ten million diagnosed patients and another five million undiagnosed, diabetes mellitus and its complications-cardiovascular disease, nephropathy, neuropathy, and retinopathy-is a major public health problem that will assume epidemic proportions as the population grows older. In Diabetes and Cardiovascular Disease, Michael T. Johnstone, md, and Aristidis Veves, md, dsc, have assembled a panel of seasoned clinicians and expert scientists to comprehensively review both the clinical and scientific aspects of diabetic cardiovascular disease. The contributors thoroughly discuss the mechanisms and risk factors of diabetes in relation to hypertension, dyslipidemia, thrombosis, atherosclerosis, coronary artery disease, and congestive heart failure. Their review includes a full examination of the epidemiology, mechanisms, methods of assessment, and treatment of the disease at the macrovascular level, and a discussion of its microvascular effects, including retinopathy, nephropathy, neuropathy, and compromised microcirculation in the diabetic foot. Each chapter covers its topics in great detail and is accompanied by extensive references.
Comprehensive and up-to-date, Diabetes and Cardiovascular Disease offers not only practicing physicians the day-to-day practical knowledge needed to treat patients effectively, but also clinical scientists a deeper understanding for developing novel therapies for this devastating illness.

Reviews

"All practicing clinicians would find some value in this text, but especially cardiologists and internal medicine practitioners as well as vascular specialists. Family medicine physicians and medical students would find it a good reference. . .This is indeed a comprehensive review of the vascular implications of diabetes. It is an important book because of the increasing prevalence of diabetes in our society. The book provides a good starting point for researchers since one can be struck after reading it that there are many opportunities for investigatioin presented here. It is a worthwhile addition to the medical literature. "-Doody's Health Sciences Book Review Journal

"...covers the range of problems, both clinical and biochemical, that arise in the cardiovascular system of those with diabetes. I highly recommend the book to interested medical students and residents and all clinicians who work with patients with diabetes." - Canadian Family Physician
