Diabetes Management in Primary Care

by Herbert P. Goodheart
  • Soft Cover
This book offers primary care physicians evidence-based guidelines for evaluating and treating all patients with diabetes. It covers all aspects of outpatient and hospital-based diabetes care for all age groups, and includes behavioral interventions for enhancing patient adherence. Coverage includes fine-tuning glycemic management with computerized self-blood glucose monitoring software, evaluating and treating patients with metabolic syndrome and polycystic ovary syndrome, managing mental illness in patients with diabetes, and prevention of microvascular and macrovascular complications. The book discusses newer insulin therapy protocols, insulin delivery devices such as pumps, pens, and inhaled insulin, and novel pharmacotherapies including incretin mimetics and DPP-IV inhibitors. =Doody's Core Title Review: " found this to be useful both as a complete review of the optimal care recommended for patients with diabetes as well as a quick reference for clinical questions which arise during daily clinical care. I would recommend it to any student interested in diabetes and to every clinician who sees patients with diabetes on a regular basis. It compares very well with other guides to managing diabetes such as the various books produced by the American Diabetes Association. However, it is one of the few specifically written with the primary care physician in mind. Elbert Huang, MD (University of Chicago Pritzker School of Medicine), contributed to this review."
