In the last 10 years, research into management issues in diabetes has vastly increased. Innovative new drugs have been developed and the evidence base for treating diabetes and preventing its complications is now outstanding. This book is designed to be a concise, practical guide to the diagnosis, assessment and management of Type 2 Diabetes for clinicians, GPs and nurse specialists. It opens with a brief introduction on the epidemiology of the condition, common complications, and cost implications. The book then details the evidence-base for treatment and introduces the reader to various risk factors, emerging therapies and approaches to management. With chapters contributed by leading UK and European diabetes experts, the information in this book is presented in an easy to use format, and supplemented with key figures and tables.
