Individualized Diabetes Management: A Guide for Primary Care


By (author): Anthony Barnett, Jenny Grice

In the past few decades a revolution in our approach to treating type 2 diabetes has occurred following the recognition that the condition is caused by multiple defects. A range of new treatments are now available, with many more forthcoming, utilising differing mechanisms of action that allow targeted and more effective therapy of this multifactorial disease than ever before.

The increasing requirement in the UK to move much of diabetes practice into the community requires much more detailed knowledge of the condition by GPs and practice nurses. In this bespoke book, the authors aim to show how new mechanisms of glucose control and advances in treatments arising from this can tailor treatment to the individual in primary care. This book incorporates the recently published ADA/EASD guidelines and the 2015 update from the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE).

Essential reading for the multi-professional diabetes care team, this book should also be of interest to hospital specialists in training.
