Advances in Pathogenesis of Diabetic Nephropathy (Nephrology Research and Clinical Developments)

Thursday, February 14th, 2013

The past three decades witnessed a plethora of scientific investigations into the pathogenesis of diabetic nephropathy, which attempt to seek the role of several potential cytokines, growth factors, second messengers, vasoactive factors, and candidate genes in leading to structural and functional demise of the kidneys in diabetes. Establishing more extensive knowledge of pathogenesis is crucial to expand the therapeutic options for diabetic nephropathy. While there are a few monographs dealing with the subject of diabetic nephropathy, this book is an exclusive treatise on the current knowledge about the pathogenesis of this condition. This book offers the most current data on the pathogenic factors incriminated in the nephropathy of diabetes.

Clinical Management of the Child and Teenager with Diabetes (The Johns Hopkins Press Series in Ambulatory Pediatric Medicine)

Monday, December 24th, 2012

Written by a Johns Hopkins pediatric endocrinologist and an award-winning medical writer, Clinical Management of the Child and Teenager with Diabetes is a comprehensive and accessible clinical guide to the modern medical management of Type 1 diabetes. Emphasizing the concerns and needs of the child and family, the book is addressed to primary care clinicians, who are increasingly responsible for managing the care of patients with diabetes.

With detailed guidelines for establishing a comprehensive patient management plan, this book discusses how to effectively ensure the health and well-being of the child or adolescent with diabetes. The authors cover the basic mechanisms of disease, provide diagnostic and treatment guidelines, describe the spectrum of management options, and offer valuable advice on how to achieve effective communication among parent, child, and members of the health care team.

Throughout, the authors stress the importance of helping children with diabetes to live as normally as possible. They address a wide range of management alternatives, including practical issues — snacking at the mall after school (and how to adjust insulin to cover it), what to do about insulin shots during sleepovers, what to tell friends and classmates as well as teachers and other educators, and how to counsel adolescents about the effect of alcohol on blood sugar levels. The text is enhanced by a variety of sample forms and documents: assessment and other record-keeping forms; sample letters to teachers describing activity restrictions and warning signs they should watch for; growth charts; tables of timing and duration of action for different types of insulin; and diabetic ketoacidosis treatment flow sheets.

Handbook of Type 1 Diabetes Mellitus: Etiology, Diagnosis, and Treatment (Metabolic Diseases – Laboratory and Clinical Research)

Friday, November 9th, 2012

Type I diabetes (T1D) is an autoimmune, inflammatory disease, incurable up to date. This book reviews and discusses the progress on environmental triggers and endogenous alarmins linking innate immunity to the pathogenesis of type 1 diabetes. The potential anti-inflammatory treatments for T1D evaluated in several models of the disease are also examined. In addition, while many individual therapies provide partial protection against the development of autoimmune diabetes, recently developed multicomponent vaccine strategies hold promise for restoration of euglycemia and more durable maintenance of immunological homeostasis. This book discusses mechanisms underlying the onset and development of type I diabetes and assesses individual and multicomponent immunosuppression strategies. The T1D associated genes that have been replicated in different populations are also analysed, and whether they could lead to the genetic diagnosis. Other chapters in this book examine the role of physical activity, insulin therapy and dietary management in the treatment of type I diabetes. Aspects of type I diabetes management in children is also reviewed, including current treatment options available, insulin regiments and insulin delivery methods, and structures and mechanism of action of the new insulin analogues.

Foot Ulcers: Causes, Diagnosis, and Treatments (Endocrinology Research and Clinical Development Series)

Monday, October 15th, 2012

A foot ulcer is an open sore on the foot. A foot ulcer can be a shallow red crater that involves only the surface skin or can also be very deep. It may be a crater that extends through the full thickness of the skin, and may involve tendons, bones and other deep structures. People with diabetes and people with poor circulation are more likely to develop foot ulcers. Among people with diabetes, a foot ulcer is the beginning stage of approximately 85% of severe foot infections that ultimately require some part of the toe, foot or lower leg to be amputated. If an infection occurs in an ulcer and is not treated right away, it can also develop into an abscess (a pocket of pus), a spreading infection of the skin and underlying fat (cellulitis), a bone infection (osteomyelitis) or gangrene. This book gathers and presents the latest research in this field.

Cardiovascular Signals in Diabetes Mellitus: A New Tool to Detect Autonomic Neuropathy (Cardiology Research and Clinical Development Series)

Wednesday, October 10th, 2012

Early detection of sub-clinical autonomic dysfunction is of vital importance in patients with diabetes mellitus (DM) for the prevention of subsequent serious adverse consequences. Reduction in heart rate variability (HRV) is now regarded as the earliest indicator of cardiovascular dysregulation in DM. HRV has traditionally been quantified using linear measures, which describe the magnitude of RR interval oscillations, but are insufficient to characterise complex heart rate dynamics. While HRV is mostly mediated by parasympathetic nervous system, beat-to-beat blood pressure recordings may provide information regarding sympathetic activity. A variety of novel measures has been developed to quantify non-linear features of cardiovascular signals, providing information on the complexity of the dynamical system involved in the genesis of these short-term fluctuations. In this book, it is demonstrated that novel non-linear methods are often more sensitive to autonomic dysregulation than linear methods and therefore may improve the diagnostic power of cardiovascular variability analysis for cardiovascular autonomic neuropathy in DM. Our data indicate that cardiovascular dysregulation progresses in relatively short time frames, depending on the history of DM. Further, its progression appears to be associated with glycemic control. Different methods of cardiovascular variability analysis can provide mutually independent information and therefore should be used simultaneously for a comprehensive analysis of autonomic dysfunction to identify patients at risk for autonomic neuropathy.
