Reviews

“This is a compilation of currently available diabetes treatment regimens. It includes an overview of the history of insulin, classifications, and current therapies, as well as products in the pipeline. It also delves into treatment of type 1 and type 2 diabetes using insulin management. … The book could be useful to all healthcare professionals who work with these patients as well as new students beginning their rotations in direct patient care.” (Amy Hess-Fischl, Doody's Book Reviews, December, 2016)
