DescriptionSeveral major clinical trials involving older people with diabetes have provided a much greater evidence base from which to draw clinical therapeutic decisions, and several new themes in geriatric diabetes are emerging. This new edition of the popular Diabetes in Old Age features up-to-date and comprehensive information about the key aspects of managing older people with diabetes, predominantly Type 2 diabetes. It covers standard problems, such as diagnosis, and topics specific to the elderly - falls, dementia and nursing home care.
Diabetes in Old Age 3e provides guidance, best practice points and key learning outcomes in each area covered, and identifies the published evidence base for each major conclusion. Different approaches to optimising diabetes care in the community, primary care and secondary care health care arenas are presented. The role of the diabetes specialist nurse in diabetes care is also covered.
Diabetes in Old Age 3e is essential reading for diabetologists, diabetes specialist nurses, primary care physicians, general physicians and geriatricians, podiatrists and dieticians with an interest in diabetes, as well as all health professionals engaged in the delivery of diabetes care, including social services and health professionals providing care to older people
