About this book


Gender differences impact the pathophysiology and clinical burden of diabetes in women. Exploring the complex interplay between gender and diabetes, Diabetes in Women provides a state-of-the-art update from conception to menopause and beyond. Written by experts in the field, Diabetes in Women covers sex differences in cardiometabolic risk, the impact of diabetes on women’s health, diabetes and pregnancy, offspring of the diabetic mother and the disease management of women with diabetes. Chapters include up to date information on cardiometabolic risk in women throughout the lifecycle and the differences between sexes in energy balance and body composition. Prominent authors also explore the impact of poverty and globalization on the emerging epidemic of obesity in developing countries. Designed for primary care and internal medicine physicians, endocrinologists, obstetricians and gynecologists, and trainees and basic scientists in these areas, Diabetes in Women is an invaluable resource and important contribution to the field.
