Understanding Diabetes and Endocrinology

  • Published: January 2011
  • 160 Pages
  • Manson Publishing

Diabetes is a common and debilitating condition encountered by all doctors worldwide, regardless of specialist interest. This book aims to give the reader an understanding of the background, diagnosis, investigation and management of diabetes and endocrine disease. This book is set out in three main sections. The first gives a background understanding of diabetes and a review of glandular systems. The second outlines the disease problems and their investigation, including the specific complications of diabetes. The third covers the management and treatment of diabetes and endocrine disease, importantly including prevention and screening.

This is the third book in a new series which combines a symptoms and problem-based approach. It will appeal to medical students and instructors, to junior doctors and to health care professionals dealing with diabetes and endocrine diseases.

Key features:

- Covers investigation, diagnosis, prevention and treatment
- Illustrated throughout in full colour
- Third in a new series for junior doctors, medical students and allied healthcare professionals
