Beschreibung

A state-of-the-art analysis of a rapidly evolving field!

Until recently, diabetic neuropathy has been a poorly understood and neglected complication of diabetes. The last few years have seen a dramatic increase in the understanding of this complex disorder.

Here is the first book to present a systematic review that covers such topics as the structure and function of the nervous system, epidemiology and pathophysiology of diabetic neuropathy, and the clinical features and treatment options. It discus- ses the available diagnostic tools and strategies, and offers guidelines for the out- patient management of diabetic peripheral neuropathy. The book also covers the clinical, technical, and public health issues associated with neuropathy.

Don't miss these key benefits:

  • Brings together a team of world-renowned experts in the field to tackle the problem of diabetic neuropathy
  • Special emphasis on the clinical presentations of the disease, making it easier to recognize and treat
  • A unique chapter on the socioeconomic aspects of diabetic neuropathy, including discussions on disability, premature death, and quality of life issues
  • Extensive lists of references in every chapter, helpful for further research
Knowledge of diabetic neuropathy has improved dramatically in recent years-it's crucial to be familiar with the most recent clinical research on the disease. Essen- tial reading for all internists, neurologists, endocrinologists, and related specialists who treat patients with diabetes!
