Review quote

From the reviews: "The book is didactic, well laid out...it focuses on all the points raise by experts...[it] certainly gives a current answer to specific clinical questions that will arrive in any consulting room...with its engaging practicality and its focus on day-to-day therapeutic problems (to say nothing of the continuing medical education questions that follow each chapter), it will provide a guide for doctors and nurses meeting a patient who mentions the metabolic syndrome."-New England Journal of Medicine"This book is a richly informative, well organized and well referenced guide to the diagnosis and management of type 2 diabetes mellitus. The information is very relevant to the practicing physician. The book covers current knowledge with recommendations based upon recent medicalliterature. There are ample references. Category 1 CME credit can also be obtained as one reads through the book."-Doody's Health Sciences Book Review Journal "This book is a comprehensive review of all the issues related to type 2 diabetes mellitus. ! Each chapter is set up in a similar way, with recommendations clearly marked in lists or tables to allow them to be quickly found by skimming the chapter. ! I learned a great deal reading this book. ! You will definitely know more about type 2 diabetes after you read this book." (Alan G. Kaplan, Canadian Family Physician, Vol. 52, October, 2006)show more
