About the Authors
  • Diabetes is one of the major causes of morbidity and mortality in the developed world, and its prevalence elsewhere is on the increase. It affects in excess of 100 million people worldwide. Recent scientific advances have clarified our understanding of the causes and consequences of this devastating disease. These scientific developments are playing an increasingly important role in clinical practice and could well lead the way to the prevention of complications and even a cure for the disease. This significant new publication provides a summary and overview of the most recent scientific advances in diabetes research, and highlights the role of these developments in advancing clinical practice.

    • International and authoritative
    • Comprehesive and up to date coverage
    • Important and relevant to clinical practice

    Reviews & endorsements

    "The book is of high quality throughout and provides an excellent, current, and relevant summary of diabetes research developments. The book would be a fine addition to a medical library, medical and scientific bookstore shelf, and personal library of the interested individual." Anthony Pick, Doody's Health Sciences Book Review Journal

    "The editors have assembled a great deal of information that is well-presented, and will be of interest to scientifically disposed clinicians. The clinical aspects will be helpful to basic scientists. Students and others new to the field will find this book complementary to standard, more comprehensive textbooks. Well-referenced, this book should serve as a resource for many of us keen on the scientific rationalization of our teaching, practice, and research." N. Wilson Rodger, Annals RCPSC

    "[A] comprehensive and up-to-date treatise on diabetes mellitus....The characterization of diabetic complications is a particular strength of the book and provides useful information for the practicing family physician....[T]he overall quality of the book is excellent. This book should serve as a useful addition to the reference library of the family physician." Charles Ponte, Family Medicine
