Diabetes Mellitus

Third Edition Ian N Scobie

Completely revised and updated, this third edition of Atlas of Diabetes Mellitus provides complete coverage of the signs and symptoms of diabetes mellitus and its treatment.

Featuring over 120 color plates illustrating the signs and symptoms of insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (IDDM) and non-insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (NIDDM) and their treatment, it also contains an instructive review section that covers:

IDDM and NIDDM pathogenesis

• Treatments with diet, insulin, and drugs

• Acute complications of hypoglycemia, diabetic ketoacidosis, and hyperosmolar non-ketoacidotic coma

• Chronic complications of diabetic retinopathy, nephropathy, and neuropathy, major vascular disease, hypertension, and the diabetic foot

• Diabetes and pregnancy.

With new chapters that discuss diabetes in the adolescent and the diabetic patient at home, the atlas also includes further up-to-date information on islet cell transplantation, diabetes and surgery, the costs of diabetes to both patient and the health system, and clinical trials. Detailed captions for each illustration, as well as bibliographic references and a full index, enhance the book's value as an atlas-text for teaching, residency training and clinical practice.
