This fully revised fourth edition of Fast Facts: Diabetes Mellitus provides a practical hands-on approach to the causes, clinical manifestations and treatment strategies for type 1 and type 2 diabetes.
With the pursuit of good blood glucose control at its core, Fast Facts: Diabetes Mellitus is an invaluable resource for primary care physicians, specialist nurses and nurse educators, diabetes and endocrinology trainees, medical students and allied healthcare professionals such as dietitians and podiatrists. It is also an ideal up-to-date overview of current practice for specialists from other disciplines who regularly see patients with diabetes.
