About this book
Diabetes Guide adopts a novel "non-textual" approach to the dissemination ofcomprehensive, up-to-date information on the theory and practice of diabetology. This has been achieved through the liberal use of tables, diagrams, flowsheets, summaries and annotations in place of the usual prose and verbiage. As a result of such an economic use of space, vast amounts of knowledge on the definition, classification, management complications and various other aspects of diabetes have been condensed intoa surprisingly digestible pocketbook. Emerging perspectives on genetic counseling, the insulin gene and pancreatic transplantation are also incorporated. One outstanding feature of Diabetes Guide is the provision of succinct practical recommendations for the solution of problemsthat arise during the daily care of patients with diabetes. The subjects covered under these recommendations range from insulin infuser pump problems, care of foot ulcers, food exchanges, travel and acute illness, insulin allergy and desensitization protocol, diabetic emergencies,pregnancy, surgery, hypoglycaemia, etc. Such breadth of coverage has been achieved without the usual price of increased bulk through the unique "non-Textual" approach. Diabetes Guide is designed to be a user-friendly, ready reference of vade mecum for practical tips and core information on various aspects of diabetes.
