About this title:
This new edition of the popular and market-leading Diabetes in Old Age features up-to-date and comprehensive information about the key aspects of managing older people with diabetes, predominantly Type 2 diabetes. With a strong evidence-based focus throughout, the entire range of issues surrounding diabetes and its many complications are covered, with a clear focus on how they relate directly to the older patient. Varying approaches to optimizing diabetes care in the community, primary-care and secondary-care health care arenas are presented, and the importance of comprehensive functional assessment is emphasized. Coverage of areas unique to an ageing population with diabetes – such as falls management, frailty and sarcopenia, and cognitive dysfunction – form a key cornerstone of the book. In every chapter, best-practice points and key-learning outcomes are provided, as well as published evidence bases for each major conclusion.
At 576 pages and fully indexed, it is divided into five sections for ease of reference: Pathophysiology screening and diagnosis; Vascular risk factors and complications; Treatment and care issues; Management of associated complications, and Optimizing diabetes care in older people. The 38 detailed chapters within follow a logical pattern and each is written by world-leaders in the relevent specialty.
Diabetes in Old Age, 4th Edition is essential reading for diabetologists and endocrinologists, diabetes specialist nurses, primary care physicians, general physicians and geriatricians, podiatrists and dieticians with an interest in diabetes, as well as for all health professionals engaged in the delivery of diabetes care to older people.
Editors: Alan J Sinclair, Trisha Dunning, Leocadio Rodríguez Mañas, and Medha Munshi
