Type 1 Diabetes – Complications, Pathogenesis, and Alternative Treatments

Thursday, June 20th, 2013

This book is intended as an overview of recent progress in type 1 diabetes research worldwide, with a focus on different research areas relevant to this disease. These include: diabetes mellitus and complications, psychological aspects of diabetes, perspectives of diabetes pathogenesis, identification and monitoring of diabetes mellitus, and alternative treatments for diabetes. In preparing this book, leading investigators from several countries in these five different categories were invited to contribute a chapter to this book. We have striven for a coherent presentation of concepts based on experiments and observation from the authors own research and from existing published reports. Therefore, the materials presented in this book are expected to be up to date in each research area. While there is no doubt that this book may have omitted some important findings in diabetes field, we hope the information included in this book will be useful for both basic science and clinical investigators. We also hope that diabetes patients and their family will benefit from reading the chapters in this book.

Obese Children and the Complications They Face, Diabetes, Heart, Liver and Kidney Failure, Blindness, Amputation and Nerve Damage

Friday, February 15th, 2013

Childhood Obesity has become a global problem. Obese Kids aged 10 years are developing, among other diseases, Type 2 Diabetes, also known as Adult Onset Diabetes, in other words, an “Old Person’s Disease”.
They haven’t even found a name for it yet, and many of the medications being used are not suited for kid’s use.
This book has been written by a type 2 diabetic who, some 20 years after contracting the disease, has developed at least two of the main complications, severe nerve damage and a muscle wasting disease. But there are many complications with far worse effects than these.
The shock at finding that ten year olds were getting type 2 diabetes because
of obesity has compelled him to write this book in an attempt to wake people up to these complications.

Diabetes Mellitus: Pathophysiology, Etiologies, Complications, Management, and Laboratory Evaluation : Special Topics in Diagnostic Testing

Thursday, November 29th, 2012

Diabetes mellitus is an ancient disease that continues to plague modern man. Although the frequency of many serious disorders, such as coronary heart disease, has declined since the 1960’s, diabetes rates are approaching epidemic proportions in Westernized countries. Although representing only 10% of cases of diabetes, type 1 diabetes is also rising in frequency. The economic cost of diabetes is staggering, costing the United States more than $100 billion annually. Appropriate management of diabetes requires the efforts of clinicians, laboratorians, and pharmacologists. The goal of this book is to acquaint the laboratorian with the pathophysiology, the diverse etiologies, the complications, the clinical management, and, finally, the diagnostic and routine laboratory evaluation of diabetes.

LOCAL WOUND CARE IN DIABETIC FOOT COMPLICATIONS: Aggressive risk management and ulcer treatment to avoid amputation (Postgraduate Medicine)

Monday, October 15th, 2012

Every year, 7 or 8 of every 1,000 Americans who have diabetes undergo amputation of a foot. The rate may be twice as high in African Americans as in whites and even higher in Hispanic and Native Americans. In all diabetic patients, the rate of amputation increases with age and duration of the disease. Clearly, attentive and rigorous care is needed in these patients. In this article, Dr Muha summarizes risk factors for foot complications and describes comprehensive evaluation of foot ulcers. He also discusses the several objectives of successful treatment (eg, pressure reduction, wound closure) and how to achieve them. Muha J.

Saturday, September 29th, 2012

For the more than 21 million Americans who currently suffer from diabetes, there simply is no other reference that can match the breadth and depth of expertise found here. To prepare this book, the editors of Prevention interviewed dozens of endocrinologists, nutritionists, exercise physiologists, and other health professionals who specialize in diabetes care. Tapping into the wisdom and advice of this “dream team” of diabetes professionals, they have put together an integrated plan of attack to fight the disease on every front. Unlike the vast majority of books on diabetes that zero in on a single component, Outsmart Diabetes 1-2-3 recognizes that diabetes is a multidimensional disease and therefore any effective management plan must take all contributing factors into account. The latest research shows that with a combination of targeted treatment strategies and sensible lifestyle changes, it is possible to slow—if not stop—diabetes-related decline.
Outsmart Diabetes 1-2-3 distills the latest, cutting-edge information on every aspect of diabetes management into a comprehensive three-step program, with each step targeting a key component of optimal diabetes control:
– Step 1—Treat and prevent diabetes complications
– Step 2—Change the lifestyle factors that can compromise blood sugar balance
Step 3—Build a self-care regimen to safeguard against the disease’s long-term effects
With Outsmart Diabetes 1-2-3, readers have the knowledge and tools they need to get ahead of diabetes—and stay there for good.

Living With A Diabetic Dog: How To Keep Your Dog Healthy, Prevent Common Problems And Avoid Complications

Praise for “Living With A Diabetic Dog” 
 
Every Dog Owner Should Read This; This is a great book, well written and informative about dog diabetes. It’s written in an easy to read style – not dry and boring like some of these books can be. “
 
Easy-to-Understand Guide to Home Health Care for Your Pooch; This book is a get-down-to-business book about the home care of dogs that have been diagnosed with diabetes… The author does two things I found helpful. First, she very clearly demonstrates a deep love for her own pet. It’s clear you are reading a book not from a “let’s publish anything” author but from someone who wants you to be assured that you, the fellow pet owner, can handle the needs of your diabetic pet. Secondly, she has listed real-world tips and techniques for the actual care of your dog. There’s so much more here than just a checklist of things to do.
 
Thanks… From my dog as well; The author knows her subject very well and describes how undiagnosed diabetes affected her dog Willie and how the disease changed their lives. I wished I had discovered this book sooner and been able to recognize the symptoms of diabetes in my own dog, especially the section on peripheral neuropathy. I highly recommend this book for anyone with an older dog or a dog already diagnoses with diabetes.

Diabetes Without Drugs: The 5-Step Program to Control Blood Sugar Naturally and Prevent Diabetes Complications

Saturday, August 25th, 2012

Based on breakthrough studies, Cohen’s program reveals how people with diabetes can
reduce their need for prescription medication and minimize the disease’s effect on the body.
 
Most doctors consider diabetes a one-way street—once you have it, your only option is to manage the symptoms with a restricted diet, close monitoring of blood sugar, and expensive medications. Pharmacist Suzy Cohen shows that diabetes can be treated instead through safe, natural means, like food and vitamins, rather than strictly relying on prescription drugs. She shifts the focus away from glucose management to a whole body approach, using supplements, minerals, and dietary changes to lose weight, repair cell damage, improve insulin function, and reduce the side effects from prescription drugs, many of which rob nutrients from the body and cause additional symptoms.
 
This 5-step program uses natural alternatives, such as drinking nutrition-packed green drinks, adding vitamin D and anti-inflammatory supplements, increasing fiber intake, and including minerals in the diet to help restore the body’s own supply of insulin. Diabetes without Drugs explains how patients can protect their heart, kidneys, eyesight, and limbs from the damage often caused by diabetes and shows the impact that the right foods and the right supplements can make in reducing blood sugar levels, aiding weight loss, and restoring vibrant health to everyone with diabetes.
