The Art and Science of Personalising Care with Older People with Diabetes

 Endocrinology/Metabolism/Diabetes Mellitus  Comments Off on The Art and Science of Personalising Care with Older People with Diabetes
Sep 132018
 

This unique book is intended for all health professionals caring for older people with diabetes such as specialist and general nurses, doctors, primary care practioners and dieteticians. Although there is an increasing body of work about personalised care, no publications were identified that encompass the focus and scope of the proposed book. The global population is ageing and increasing age is a key risk factor for diabetes. Older people with diabetes are often vulnerable, have complex care needs and often have cognitive changes, which makes personalising care challenging for health professionals. Thus, this is an internationally relevant book filling a gap in the current literature.

Experimental Models of Diabetes

 Endocrinology/Metabolism/Diabetes Mellitus  Comments Off on Experimental Models of Diabetes
Aug 162018
 

An extremely useful text for research Internationally renowned experts describe the models, provide data obtained with those models, and discuss the relative usefulness of models in relation to the diabetic syndrome in humans. The first section examines the most widely used model, the streptozotocin (STZ) rat, condensing a massive quantity of literature to present both the general effects of of STZ diabetes and the effects on individual organ systems. The second section discusses less well-known and more recent diabetic models, such as the BB rat, the NOD mouse and Zucker and Zucker Diabetic Fatty rat models.
Genetic models of insulin dependent diabetes mellitus (IDDM) are examined and compared to chemically induced IDDM models.

Bacterial Physiology and Metabolism

 Endocrinology/Metabolism/Diabetes Mellitus, Physiology  Comments Off on Bacterial Physiology and Metabolism
Jul 292018
 

Recent determination of genome sequences for a wide range of bacteria has made in-depth knowledge of prokaryotic metabolic function essential in order to give biochemical, physiological, and ecological meaning to the genomic information. Clearly describing the important metabolic processes that occur in prokaryotes under different conditions and in different environments, this advanced text provides an overview of the key cellular processes that determine bacterial roles in the environment, biotechnology, and human health. Prokaryotic structure is described as well as the means by which nutrients are transported into cells across membranes. Glucose metabolism through glycolysis and the TCA cycle are discussed, as well as other trophic variations found in prokaryotes, including the use of organic compounds, anaerobic fermentation, anaerobic respiratory processes, and photosynthesis. The regulation of metabolism through control of gene expression and control of the activity of enzymes is also covered, as well as survival mechanisms used under starvation conditions.

Inherited Metabolic Diseases: Research, Epidemiology and Statistics: A Guide to 100 Conditions

 Endocrinology/Metabolism/Diabetes Mellitus  Comments Off on Inherited Metabolic Diseases: Research, Epidemiology and Statistics: A Guide to 100 Conditions
Jul 232018
 

Inherited Metabolic Diseases are common enough for health, social service and education professionals to encounter them periodically, but rare enough for them to be poorly understood. They severely affect up to 1 in 10,000 people, and lead to a wide range of special needs in care and education. This guide provides specialist information on metabolic diseases for the non-specialist. In a concise, accessible and family-friendly format, each entry lists the names by which a condition is known, and explains the genetic causes of the disease, the physical effects, the patient’s symptoms, and available treatments. Key diseases from all ten major groups of metabolic disorders are described, and all entries have been reviewed by Specialist Advisers. The work has been coordinated by the charity Climb, Children Living with Inherited Metabolic Diseases. This uniquely comprehensive source of information is a vital reference for hospital doctors including paediatricians, general practitioners, nurses and other health professionals, social service and education staff and managers, and the families and carers of children with the conditions.
