Handbook of Diabetes 4e [With CDROM]

New or Used: 14 copies from $98.94
Over three editions the Handbook of Diabetes has built a reputation as an essential practical manual on the assessment and management of patients with diabetes. Previously written by Gareth Williams and John Pickup, the book has been completely revised by Rudy Bilous and Richard Donnelly to reflect recent changes in diabetes treatment and care. It contains information on the new IFCC units for measuring blood glucose and the latest drugs being used to combat diabetes, as well as alternative methods of insulin delivery.

The book has been fully updated and redesigned to make it even more user-friendly, and contains case histories, practice points, and landmark clinical trials highlighted in color in each chapter where appropriate. It also features an entirely new set of clinical photographs, and all 250 images from the book can be downloaded from the companion CD for use in presentations.

The Handbook of Diabetes is the ideal practical handbook for all health professionals with an interest in diabetes care.
