Hormones, Metabolism and the Benefits of Exercise (Research and Perspectives in Endocrine Interactions)

 Endocrinology/Metabolism/Diabetes Mellitus  Comments Off on Hormones, Metabolism and the Benefits of Exercise (Research and Perspectives in Endocrine Interactions)
Jun 182018
 

The world is faced with an epidemic of metabolic diseases such as obesity and type 2 diabetes. This is due to changes in dietary habits and the decrease in physical activity. Exercise is usually part of the prescription, the first line of defense, to prevent or treat metabolic disorders. However, we are still learning how and why exercise provides metabolic benefits in human health. This open access volume focuses on the cellular and molecular pathways that link exercise, muscle biology, hormones and metabolism. This will include novel “myokines” that might act as new therapeutic agents in the future.

Managing the Diabetic Foot, 3rd Edition

 Endocrinology/Metabolism/Diabetes Mellitus  Comments Off on Managing the Diabetic Foot, 3rd Edition
Jun 072018
 

Foot problems in diabetic patients are some of the most challenging complications to treat, due to an often quite late presentation of symptoms from the patient. Therefore visual recognition of presenting clinical signs is absolutely key for a successful diagnosis and subsequently, the right management programme.

The 3rd edition of Managing the Diabetic Foot once again provides a practical, handy and accessible pocket guide to the clinical management of patients with severe feet problems associated with diabetes, such as ulcers, infections and necrosis. By focusing on the need for a speedy response to the clinical signs, it will enable doctors make rapid, effective management decisions in order to help prevent deterioration and avoid the need for evental foot amputation.

Each chapter focuses specifically on the different stages of foot disease and the clinical management required at that particular stage, ie, the normal foot; high-risk foot, ulcerated foot, infected foot, necrotic foot and unsalvageable foot.

Full colour throughout, it will feature over 150 clinical photos, numerous hints and tips to aid rapid-reference, as well as the latest national and international guidelines on diabetic foot management.

Managing the Diabetic Foot, 3E, is the ideal go-to clinical tool for all diabetes professionals, specialist diabetes nurses and podiatrists managing patients with diabetic foot problems.

Diabetes Mellitus : A Medical History Journey

 Endocrinology/Metabolism/Diabetes Mellitus  Comments Off on Diabetes Mellitus : A Medical History Journey
May 302018
 

The United States CDC (Center for Disese Control and Prevention) estimated that 86 million adult Americans have prediabetes and therefore risk of developing T2DM, and 1 in 10 are unaware of their condition. About 29 million people have actual diabetes with most T2DM. With about 9% of the population having diabetes, we are talking about a public health issue of proportion.

Contents:

Introduction
Chapter 1 Trends in child and youth diabetes

Section One: Diabetes mellitus history
Chapter 2 A historical journey of diabetes mellitus

Section Two: Acknowledgments
Chapter 3 About the authors
Chapter 4 About the Department of Pediatric and Adolescent Medicine, Western Michigan University Homer Stryker MD School of Medicine (WMED), Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA
Chapter 5 About the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development in Israel
Chapter 6 About the book series “Public health: Practices, methods and policies”

The Diabetes Rescue Diet: Conquer Diabetes Naturally While Eating and Drinking What You Love-Even Chocola te and Wine!

 Endocrinology/Metabolism/Diabetes Mellitus  Comments Off on The Diabetes Rescue Diet: Conquer Diabetes Naturally While Eating and Drinking What You Love-Even Chocola te and Wine!
May 252018
 

Imagine a diet so easy and yet so powerful that it could not only balance out-of-control blood sugar, but effectively reverse insulin resistance, freeing people everywhere from the restraints of type 2 diabetes. That plan has arrived. The Diabetes Rescue Diet promises good, wholesome food without making readers count calories, buy exotic supplements, or completely change their daily routines—no sacrifice required!

The plan is inspired by a Mediterranean diet chock full of whole grains, olive oil, and hearty fare that is proven to reduce blood sugar and cholesterol levels and lower the risk of heart disease and other serious health threats. Readers will still eat favorites like pasta, meatloaf, and pork tenderloin (chocolate and ice cream, too!), but will also savor new dishes like Oven-Fried Tilapia and Pineapple Roasted Sweet Potatoes.

The Diabetes Rescue Diet isn’t just about food, though. Also included are a 21-day walking plan to get readers moving and improve blood circulation in just 15 to 30 minutes a day; a dining-out guide that proves “delicious” doesn’t have to mean “dangerous” when it comes to diabetes; and a chapter of “healthy shortcuts” to try right now for head-to-toe to protection from disease. With more than 80 mouthwatering dishes and expert advice, Mark Bricklin’s The Diabetes Rescue Diet is the last stop on the road to reversing diabetes and attaining great health for life.

Diabetes Mellitus (Methods in Molecular Medicine)

 Endocrinology/Metabolism/Diabetes Mellitus  Comments Off on Diabetes Mellitus (Methods in Molecular Medicine)
May 252018
 

Diabetes mellitus is the collective name for a group of diseases associated with hyperglycemia (high levels of blood glucose) caused by defects in insulin p- duction, insulin action, or both. About 6. 2% of the US population (17 million people) have diabetes mellitus. It is the leading cause of kidney failure, bli- ness, and amputations. It is also a major risk factor for heart diseases, stroke, and birth defects. Diabetes Mellitus: Methods and Protocols provides a state-of-the-art account of the experimental methodology for studying the molecular defects leading to diabetes mellitus, both at the molecular and biochemical levels. The chapters cover a wide range of topics written by experts in their respective fields and are organized in two sections: Insulin Production and Insulin Action. The detailed experimental protocols presented, including the notes of interest, provide a very useful tool for basic researchers and clinicians for investigating and treating this disease. Each chapter starts with an introduction to a specific technique and explains its application in the field of diabetes research. Following the list of materials, a detailed description of the technique is presented in the methods section in a way that enables the successful execution of the protocol. The “Notes” section at the end discusses the pitfalls of the technique and alternative approaches. I am grateful to the numerous scientists who have contributed to this volume by writing both highly detailed and understandable chapters.

Reactive Oxygen Metabolites: Chemistry and Medical Consequences

 Endocrinology/Metabolism/Diabetes Mellitus  Comments Off on Reactive Oxygen Metabolites: Chemistry and Medical Consequences
May 232018
 

In recent years, the field of radical chemistry has undergone explosive growth. Although its roots lie in organic chemistry, the implications of its findings are having enormous impact in a broad range of disciplines, and we now have evidence for radical involvement in over 100 diseases. As important as this is, however, the subject of radicals and reactive oxygen metabolites (ROMs) is complex and barely touched upon in the curriculum of medical schools.
Reactive Oxygen Metabolites brings the subject within the grasp of even those with little preparation in chemistry. From the basic chemistry of radicals through the pathology, the author provides a clear and thorough introduction to ROMs and their importance to human health and disease. Exhaustively researched and referenced, this highly readable work will give you the ability to critically analyze and evaluate many pathological problems arising from the chemistry of ROMs and reduce them to their lowest common denominator. It is the ideal vehicle for people who need to understand the importance of reactive oxygen and nitrogen species in human health and disease but have neither the time, the inclination, nor perhaps the background to work their way through the mountain of original literature.
