Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Controversial in terms of definition and management, brittle diabetes is a difficult area for most diabetologists. Bringing together the latest research, Unstable and Brittle Diabetes provides a comprehensive overview of the current status that creates a better understanding of this complex condition. It is the first book in nearly 20 years to focus on the problem of severely unstable diabetes.A multidisciplinary and highly experienced group of writers, the editors and their panel of experts cover causes, treatment, outcomes, quality of life issues, and more. They cover the history of the disease, secondary causes, hypoglycaemic diabetic instability, insulin resistance and over-insulinisation, diabetic instability in children and the elderly, psychological factors and intervention, and educating patients about the disease. The book provides a balanced view of this problematic area of diabetes care.
