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.

Il diabetico anziano. Gestione condivisa

Claudio Marengo, Marco Comoglio
e altri

editore: SEEd

pagine: 104

La malattia diabetica nel paziente anziano non è facile da gestire per la sua elevata prevalenza, la sua lunga durata, l'ampia varietà di complicanze e i coinvolgimenti emotivi e psicologici tipici delle malattie croniche. Nato dalla collaborazione e dal confronto fra medici impegnati a diverso livello nella gestione del paziente diabetico anziano, il libro identifica compiti e competenze di ciascun professionista che interviene nel processo di cura, individuando periodicità e modalità di interazione. Un supporto per affrontare alcune problematiche di tipo pratico, quindi, ma anche uno spunto per incrementare il dialogo tra professionisti, mantenendo come prioritaria la centralità del paziente.

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.

Diagnosis and Management

Paul N. Durrington

editore: Hodder Arnold

pagine: 416

The third edition of this well-received text provides a state-of-the-art treatise on modern clinical practice relating to hyperlipidaemia and lipoprotein disorders, conditions responsible for a huge amount of morbidity and mortality in Western countries and, increasingly, the developing world. The clinical evidence underlying the treatment of hyperlipidaemia has burgeoned since the second edition published in 1994, with the publication of the results of several clinical trials on statin drugs, and the subsequent appearance of national and international guidelines for cholesterol lowering in coronary prevention. There has also been considerable development in the definition of cardiovascular risk, and the methodology for identifying high-risk patients. All of these aspects are addressed fully in the new edition. In addition, the book offers helpful summaries of the background biochemistry of lipoprotein metabolism and atherosclerosis where relevant, putting the subject in the context of its pathophysiology and epidemiology. The text relating to clinical aspects has a strong evidence base, reviewing, in particular, areas of uncertainty and controversy. Drawing on the wealth of experience of the author, and representing his widely respected views on the subject, readers will find this comprehensive, well-referenced and accessible book invaluable.
