Diabetes and the Kidney provides endocrinologists and nephrologists of all levels with expert clinical diagnosis and management guidance for this extremely common diabetic complication.
Practical and accessible, chapters contain text features such as case histories, potential pitfall boxes, key points, management algorithms, and useful weblinks to fully engage the reader and provide expert guidance to help clinicians best manage their patients. In addition, all relevant international society guidelines and recommendations are fully included.
After an initial analysis of the epidemiology and pathogenesis of kidney complications in diabetes, it quickly moves on to the following core sections:
• Special Situations, Risk factors and Complications - examining diabetic nephropathy in relation to each other diabetic complication, ie cardiovascular disease
• Prevention and Therapy - focusing on the most up to date information regarding prevention, diagnosis, treatment, and management of kidney disease in diabetes.
Expertly edited, and with contributions from an experienced international team, Diabetes and Kidney Disease will be the perfect tool to consult when managing diabetic patients with associated kidney problems.
