Review Essays of Academic, Professional & Technical Books in the Humanities & Sciences



Ellenberg and Rifkin's Diabetes Mellitus, 6th Edition by Daniel Porte  Robert Sherwin  Alain Baron  (Mc Graw-Hill) A comprehensive reference on diabetes mellitus, covering basic biochemistry, physiology, and pathogenesis, as well as clinical diagnosis and treatment. The Sixth Edition includes five new chapters, plus new material on the genetic basis of the disease, new hypoglycemic drugs, mechanisms of hormone action, and regulation of hormone secretion. Extensive reference provides new material on the molecular, cellular, and biological aspects of diabetes mellitus. Presents diagnosis, current treatments, and research. For clinicians  

This widely-acclaimed reference incorporates the knowledge and experience of 131 expert clinicians to bring you authoritative and practical information on all facets of diabetes mellitus. From discussions of advances in our understanding of carbohydrates and lipid metabolism -- to clinical aspects of diagnosis and management of the disease -- you can rely on their contributions to help you keep pace with the rapid developments in the field. You'll find:

  • Completely revised chapters on the mechanisms of insulin action and the biochemical mechanisms of microvascular disease
  • A new chapter on vascular thrombosis and endothelial dysfunction, the molecular mechanisms, and genetic engineering of insulin secreting cells
  • Major updates on the mechanisms involved in eye, kidney, and nerve complications of the disease
  • New treatment modalities and pharmaceutical agents for both forms of the disease
  • Several new chapters on macrovascular disease and the impact of the major risk factors on its clinical manifestations, including hypertension, dyslipidemia, and endothelial and hematological dysfunction

There is standardized terminology for type 1 and type 2 diabetes used throughout the text, and updated standards for the diagnosis and classification of these forms. With the aid of this comprehensive reference, any doctor will be quickly brought up to date on the topics of major significance and practicality in clinical practice.
