Description

This book is written to give healthcare professionals a comprehensive, understandable and practical text on which to base their care to patients with diabetes whilst in hospital. It gives the conceptual hooks required to be able to understand the principles of diabetes, maintaining and achieving blood glucose control and the effective treatment of diabetes.   If the book is read as a whole, a complete picture of diabetes care is provided, or, you can ‘dip in and out’ of the chapters relating to your specialism.
