Type 1 Diabetes in Adults: Principles and Practice

Monday, October 22nd, 2012

Recent research in diabetes has proven Type 1 diabetes is no longer only a juvenile disease. It has been projected adult Type 1 diabetes will increase 40% from 1997-2010, and as our understanding of the pathogenesis of Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes grows – it is apparent that some cases previously classified as Type 2 are actually adult onset Type 1 diabetes. This volume is the first to focus exclusively on Type 1 diabetes in adults, seeks to clarify the complexities by explaining latest concepts in the pathophysiology and management of the disease, and to assist clinicians in the optimal utilization of cutting edge technology, therapeutics, and management strategies available to them.

 

A Primer for Diabetic Patients a Brief Outline of the Principles of Diabetic Treatment, Sample Menus, Recipes and Food Tables (Classic Reprint)

Thursday, September 20th, 2012

The need for a brief outline of the principles underlying the dietary treatment of diabetes was felt by us in the daily instruction of patients in the matter of their diets and hygiene. Dr. Elliott P. Joslin sD iabetic Manual has been a great help, but we desired something more like a primer to place in the hands of the patients. For this reason an outline was prepared and mimeographed; copies of this were used for several months, when the demand for them made it necessary to publish the outline in the present form. We entirely agree with Dr. Joslin that the education of the patient is essential to successful treatment. It may be true that an occasional nervous person is hurt by such procedure, but those who are benefited vastly outnumber those who have been harmed. We can name only 2of more than 100 patients treated on the diabetic service of theM ayo Clinic during the past year who might have benefited more had they been left in ignorance of the nature of their condition.
