Prescribing in Diabetes

Jill Hill, Molly Courtenay

editore: Cambridge University Press

pagine: 214

The effective management of diabetes can delay or even prevent the development of complications. Patients will often need to take a variety of medications, in addition to embracing lifestyle changes, to achieve this. Prescribing in Diabetes gives clear information about the options for treating the various aspects of diabetes, such as abnormal blood glucose, high blood pressure and abnormal cholesterol. It also gives practical advice on how to support people in managing their problems independently and improve their lifestyle, by making better choices armed with a thorough understanding of the condition and options for treatment. Chapters cover the range of methods available for the delivery of medicines to patients, the differences between type 1 and type 2 diabetes and an overview on how the drugs work. The book also discusses normal blood glucose regulation, self-monitoring, weight management, smoking cessation and the management of the most common complications.

Endocrine Manifestations of Systemic Autoimmune Diseases

editore: Elsevier Science Ltd

pagine: 340

This book is one of the first to evaluate the role of Steroids in autoimmune rheumatic diseases from the basic mechanisms to the clinical involvements and focuses on the importance of steroidal hormones in the pathogenesis and therapeutic management of the autoimmune rheumatic diseases. In particular, the chapters analyze the mechanisms of action and the involvement of adrenal steroids (glucocorticoids) in the neuroendocrine immune system, including effects on the elderly. The perturbations of the HPA axis as a source of altered steroidal synthesis will be discussed and related to some interesting pathological conditions that commonly complicate the autoimmune rheumatic diseases such as psychosis or fibromyalgia. Concerning the role of gonadal steroids (sex hormones), several chapters will discuss clinical and epidemiological evidences of their role, as well as their effects as risk factors in autoimmune rheumatic diseases, including a section on pediatrics. *The premier issue evaluating the role of steroids in autoimmune rheumatic diseases from the basic mechanisms to the clinical involvements *Documents the latest research and indicate recent and coming new therapeutic-biological approaches to the therapy *The book will present therapeutic perspectives concerning the new glucocorticoids, and the effects of biological drugs on their synthesis

Management of Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus

A Practical Guide

Richard Donnelly, Steven Levene

editore: Butterworth-Heinemann Ltd

pagine: 312

In the 21st Century, the management of type 2 diabetes has become even more important both in the primary health care setting and in the government's health policy. With the publication of the "National Service Framework" and the allied "National Clinical Guidelines", both patients and the government expect practices to deliver appropriate and effective care to a high standard. This book is aimed at all members of the primary health care team and concentrates on providing practical advice. Greater knowledge and skills will promote the delivery of high quality care to patients with type 2 diabetes in the community and, hopefully, reduce the impact of cardiovascular disease in this high risk group.This handbook addresses many concepts important in the day-to-day management of these patients. In addition to the discussion of specific medical management of type 2 diabetes (including the improvement of cardiovascular risk factors), the book explores the use of self-management techniques, the consultation process, and the use of psychological techniques to influence health-related behavior. All aspects of the text are linked, when appropriate, to the GMS contract.

Managing Clinical Problems in Diabetes

Glen Ward, Trish Dunning

editore: Wiley-Blackwell (an imprint of John Wiley & Sons Ltd)

pagine: 232

The incidence and prevalence of diabetes is increasing globally, and most health professionals are likely to care for people with diabetes. In such cases they may often find that they have to make clinical decisions without expert support, which can be difficult for both patient and carer. Managing Clinical Problems in Diabetes provides this support by exploring common clinical problems in diabetes care, and providing practical solutions based on evidence and the clinical experience of diabetes educators, endocrinologists, general practitioners, and other health professionals who encounter such problems on a daily basis. Each chapter begins with an introductory section presenting an overview of the management of diabetes, including short and long term complications and management targets across the lifespan. The authors then pose commonly encountered diabetes management problems, developing comprehensive responses from a range of relevant health professionals who each provide management suggestions from their area of practice. Managing Clinical Problems in Diabetes is a vital resource for health professionals involved in the provision of care for people with diabetes.

Diabete e attività fisica

G. Pasquale Ganzit, Luca Stefanini

editore: SEEd

pagine: 56

Già alla fine del diciannovesimo secolo Apollinaire Bouchardat, primo diabetologo pratico e capostipite di una famiglia di diabetologi, raccomandava ai suoi pazienti "la caccia, la scherma, il remare, il pattinaggio, il gioco della pallacorda". Un secolo dopo l'attività fisica continua ad essere considerata un elemento primario della terapia del diabete. L'esercizio praticato con regolarità migliora le alterazioni metaboliche indotte dalla patologia, diminuisce il rischio cardiovascolare e consente di tenere sotto controllo il peso corporeo. Lo sport nel soggetto diabetico, preceduto da adeguati controlli medici, va quindi incentivato. Diabete e attività fisica illustra quali sono gli sport da evitare e quelli consigliati per i pazienti diabetici.

Textbook of Men's Health and Aging

Alvaro Morales, Bruno Lunenfeld
e altri

editore: Informa Healthcare

pagine: 784

The first edition of "Textbook of Men's Health" did much to establish and define the scope of the emerging subspecialty of aging men's health. This revised and updated edition, with new sections on basic sciences and sexual dysfunction, has a small but significant change of approach - reflected in the new title. The central mission of the new edition is to unpick normal physiologic aging in men from pathologic processes, eschewing any material that is routinely available in the standard textbooks of medicine and geriatrics in order to maintain a uniquely male perspective. This means a focus on the age-related decline in sex steroids and other hormones and the pathological and clinical consequences. Wherever possible, the book records consensus on diagnostic criteria, emphasizes evidence-based medicine and highlights translational science.
