R1,062 R965 Discovery Miles 9 650 Save R97 (9%) Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

The aim of this guide is to provide clinicians with practical reference for the management of hypertensive patients with other cardiovascular risk factors, which originate from impaired metabolic functions. With the aid of carefully selected, paradigmatic case studies, the physician will find sound advice for the best approach to common but often under-recognized clinical situations, and answers to practical questions that arise when a specific condition is not directly addressed in the guidelines. Question-and-answer sections will help the reader to identify at a glance the most complex steps in the diagnostic and therapeutic process. In a "real world" clinical setting, the hypertensive patient rarely presents with hypertension as the only cardiovascular risk factor, and is more likely to be affected by other metabolic risk factors, such as impairment of lipid metabolism, glucose homeostasis, and purine metabolism, and by overweight or obesity. These cases will serve as a basis for analyzing best practice, highlighting problems in diagnosis and treatment, and selecting the most appropriate management of patients with metabolic risk factors in everyday practice.

The essential guide to living well with diabetes, written by an expert who has lived with the condition for more than four decades. How to Live Well with Diabetes is a comprehensive self-help guide for people with the condition, either newly diagnosed or for those who've been living with diabetes for some time. This book has been written to help you understand your diagnosis so you can manage and live well with your diabetes for as long as possible. Every aspect of your life with diabetes is covered - from diet, sex and exercise to mood changes, managing blood glucose levels and physical complications arising from the condition. Dr Val Wilson draws on four decades of personal and professional experience to help readers deal with their diagnosis, consider how it will affect their relationships and lifestyle, with advice on DAFNE for Type 1 diabetics and ways that Type 2 diabetes can eventually be reversed. Real-life case studies show other people's experiences of diabetes-related issues that you might also be dealing with. Around 700 people each day are diagnosed with diabetes - that's the equivalent of one every two minutes. In January 2016, Diabetes UK announced that four million people in Britain now have diabetes of one form or another. This is the only book they need to help self-manage the condition.

This guide is structured to assist physicians in the management of those hypertensive patients who present with specific comorbidities, such as diabetes, systolic dysfunction, obesity, renal disease, or previous cardiac events, often associated with hypertension. The clinical cases contained in this book have been selected to provide a paradigmatic set of scenarios frequently encountered in daily clinical practice, and will serve as an easy-to-access tool in applying general guidelines to individual patients, particularly in the choice of the most appropriate antihypertensive therapy. Treatment of hypertension with associated clinical conditions require specific therapies and combinations of drugs, which are necessarily different from one comorbidity to another. By discussing exemplary cases that may better represent clinical practice in a "real world" setting, and analyzing step by step the diagnostic and therapeutic process, this book will assist cardiologists and physicians in selecting the diagnostic tools and forms of treatment best suited to the individual patient and the particular cardiovascular risk profile.

Diabetes used to be rare and clear. One boy in the school had Type 1 and a friend of a friend's granny had Type 2. We now see adults being diagnosed with Type 1 and children developing Type 2. There are over 400 million diabetics world-wide - four times as many as in 1980. The vast majority of these have Type 2 - sometimes judged as a `lifestyle' disease. The traditional view of diabetes is that is it a "chronic and progressive" condition and that nothing can be done about it. Serious complications include loss of eyesight, amputations and death. This book has gathered together some of the finest minds working in the field of diabetes and diet. The result is a collection of chapters by thought leaders, academics and doctors addressing the big issues. What is diabetes? What are the different types? What causes it? Who gets it? Why do we eat so much carbohydrate? Why do diabetics die of heart disease? Why do athletes commonly get Type 2 diabetes? The writers in this book approach diabetes from many different angles, but they all share one common belief: Diabetes does not need to be "chronic and progressive." Both Type 1 and Type 2 can be substantially alleviated and the latter can be `put into remission.' Let us tell you how...

Recognising a need to promote and enhance teaching of clinical endocrinology and diabetes in UK medical schools, the Society for Endocrinology, in collaboration with Diabetes UK and the Association of British Clinical Diabetologists, created a national curriculum that sets out the minimum recommended standards for undergraduate medical education. Clinical Endocrinology and Diabetes at a Glance corresponds to the curriculum and covers all important areas of diabetes and endocrinology in a clinically relevant and concise manner, with complementary figures to ensure principles are explained clearly. It highlights key practical skills for undergraduates in line with the GMC recommendations that medical graduates should be well prepared for their Foundation posts. There is also emphasis on the importance of multidisciplinary teams in the management of endocrine diseases and diabetes. These include sections on structured education programmes, psychosocial aspects, and patient self-management and monitoring. Clinical Endocrinology and Diabetes at a Glance will serve as a valuable resource for medical students and junior doctors treating patients with these conditions.
