About this book


Over 18 million Americans are afflicted. Nearly as many are at risk. Diabetic conditions account for one-fifth of the nation’s chronic health care burden.

A public health crisis of this magnitude demands professional resources that apply evidence-based practical knowledge and anticipate the challenges that lie ahead. The Handbook of Diabetes Management is one such reference, addressing the complexity of the disease, the diversity of the populations it affects, and the continued improvement of care systems.

- The latest findings on management and treatment - medication, nutrition, exercise, alternative therapies - plus patient self-care and behavioral issues

- An accessible overview of diabetic origins and disease processes

- Up-close coverage of specific patient populations, including Latinos, Native Americans, rural communities, and the uninsured

- In-depth discussion of prediabetes, gestational diabetes, and foot conditions

- An assortment of invaluable tools, from depression assessment instruments to critical reviews of popular diets

- Salient chapters on policy, regulatory, funding, marketing, and media issues

- Innovative case studies from successful, replicable programs

The Handbook’s message is clear: effective diabetes management means support at the individual, provider, and system levels. This forward-looking volume sets standards for proactive care, whether readers are involved in hands-on practice, patient education, or the regional office.
