About this book


As the global epidemic of diabetes continues to expand, the prevalence of type 2 diabetes is predicted to double in the next 20 years. Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus: An Evidence-Based Approach to Practical Management addresses this problem by expertly synthesizing the currently available evidence regarding specific issues in diabetes care. Written by an interdisciplinary team of scientists and medical professionals and comprising a wealth of information in a single resource, the book integrates the best evidence for the full range of clinical issues surrounding the evaluation and treatment of type 2 diabetes, including comorbid conditions such as hypertension, hyperlipidemia, and vascular disease. To quantify the strength of evidence supporting current practices, each chapter highlights related conditions, including fatty liver disease, pregnancy, and polycystic ovarian syndrome, and also addresses barriers to treatment, including stress, depression, and patient motivation.

From the reviews:

"This book contains information on most topics related to type 2 diabetes, and the best evidence is integrated into a practical understanding of the disease and its treatment. … In summary, this book, written in an easily read format, must be placed among the required readings for those who seek a comprehensive understanding of the nature and treatment of type 2 diabetes." (Fernando Guerrero-Romero, New England Journal of Medical, Vol. 360 (5), January, 2009)

"Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus: An Evidence-Based Approach to Practical Management sets out to provide ‘practical guidance in a single resource for clinicians and scientists … .’ The text is clearly written, understandable, and generally easy to read. … Overall, Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus: An Evidence-Based Approach to Practical Management is an ambitious and comprehensive text that does adequately cover most of the important issues in diabetes management." (Fran Ganz-Lord, Journal of the American Medical Association, Vol. 301 (15), April, 2009)

“An extensive analysis of the epidemiology, pathophysiology and treatment of type 2 diabetes mellitus. Written by and for adult diabetologists it is of interest also for pediatric endocrinologists as the prevalence of type 2 diabetes is increasing in the pediatric age group.” (Pediatric Endocrinology Review, September, 2009) “Book have been written by an interdisciplinary team of scientists and medical professionals. There is no doubt that this valuable monograph represents most advanced views and findings in the field … to cover a broad range of problems related to epidemiology and pathogenesis of type 2 diabetes as covered in two introductory chapters. … problems associated with diabetes are being discussed as well such as hypertension, lipoprotein in diabetes, coronary artery disease, peripheral vascular disease, obesity and/or liver diseases.” (Endocrine Regulations, 2009)
