This Handbook features the elements of the highly successful Textbook of Diabetes which are of greatest relevance to general medicine, family practice and allied healthcare professionals. Although complications of diabetes can be fatal, they are seldom uppermost in the mind of the GP or patient when the condition is first presented. A keen eye is required to spot their insidious onset in the community setting. Furthermore, it is the responsibility of the GP to embrace the needs and problems of special groups of conditions, ethnic minorities, children and expectant mothers who have special requirements. Twenty-four highly-illustrated chapters of clinical relevance cover all important aspects of aetiology, pathogenesis, diagnosis, treatment, management and complications. The strong visual emphasis makes access to important information quick and easy, a necessity in the context of general practice, and gives this book a clear role alongside the portentous parent volume.
