Gastrointestinal Function in Diabetes Mellitus

Melvin Samsom, Michael Horowitz

editore: John Wiley & Sons Inc

pagine: 364

Gastrointestinal function represents an important, and hitherto inappropriately neglected, aspect of diabetes management. Disordered gastrointestinal motor and sensory function occurs frequently in both type 1 and type 2 diabetes and may be associated with gastrointestinal symptoms that adversely affect quality of life. During the last two decades, there has been a rapid expansion in knowledge in this area. It is now recognised that upper gastrointestinal motility is pivotal to the regulation of postprandial blood glucose concentrations in both health and patients with diabetes. This book is the first of its kind and was stimulated by the need to consolidate these recent advances, which dictate that a knowledge of gastroenterology as it relates to diabetes is now required of the clinician/diabetologist. It features an organ specific overview of the epidemiology and pathophysiology of disordered gastrointestinal (including hepatobiliary and pancreatic) function in diabetes mellitus. It contains guidelines for the clinician, diabetologist and gastroenterologist for both diagnosis and management. It includes a comprehensive description of the relation between gastrointestinal function, gastrointestinal hormones, autonomic nerve function and glycaemic control in animal models. It covers the development of new treatment options, particularly those targeted at the reduction of postprandial hyperglycaemia, to optimise glycaemic control. This book will be of interest to gastroenterologists, diabetologists, specialist nurses and clinical researchers.

a cura di Istituto auxologico italiano

editore: Franco Angeli

pagine: 320

Questo Quinto Rapporto sull'obesità in Italia, così come quelli che lo hanno preceduto, si pone l'obiettivo di approfondire la conoscenza dei molteplici aspetti (clinici, terapeutici e sociali) che caratterizzano tale malattia, al fine di contribuire alla sensibilizzazione e alla corretta informazione scientifica, nonché per fare il punto sullo stato della ricerca e degli approcci clinico-terapeutici a questa patologia. La particolare attenzione oggi rivolta al problema dell'obesità da parte delle autorità sanitarie è dovuta non solo alla sua rilevanza epidemiologica ma, soprattutto, alla crescente evidenza che questa condizione costituisce, a tutti gli effetti, una malattia.

Diabetes in Pregnancy

J. A. van Assche

editore: ELSEVIER HEALTH SCIENCES

pagine: 154

The Series: "European Practice in Gynaecology and Obstetrics" is a series of books conceived and endorsed by the European Board and College of Obstetrics and Gynaecology (EBCOG). Its aim is to provide up-to-date, evidence-based information that represents the consensus of opinion among leading European experts in the field, as part of the overall aim of standardising training and practice in order to ensure quality care and facilitate exchange among physicians in all parts of Europe and the rest of the world. The topics chosen for each volume are those of significant clinical interest where treatment is changing in response to research findings and developments in practice. The volume editor and contributing authors are European specialists invited to contribute because of their expertise in their field. The books concentrate on various types of management used in European practice as well as published results. The authors present treatments for which a consensus exists and - when there is no consensus - they discuss the key elements of the controversy. Each book provides a review of the basic science, recent concepts in pathophysiology, clinical aspects, treatment and unresolved problems or controversies, as well as the major recent references. A final section provides multiple-choice questions for each chapter. This volume: Major progress has been made in understanding the physiopathology of diabetes and pregnancy and this new volume in the EBCOG series includes current practice and developments in the area. Diabetes affects at least 3 percent of the pregnant women and in some areas in the world the percentage is much higher. Furthermore, the incidence of diabetes increases worldwide. Diabetes during pregnancy affects both the mother and the foetus, it is therefore necessary on the one hand to have pre-existing diabetes under control before and during pregnancy, and on the other hand to screen for gestational diabetes and if necessary to treat. During pregnancy and labour optimal foetal and maternal surveillance is important and the newborn needs close supervision. Recently it has been shown that the intra-uterine environment can have a transgenerational effect on the offspring, indicating the importance of achieving normal foetal growth.

Metabolism at a Glance

J. G. Salway

editore: Blackwell Publishing Ltd

pagine: 128

Metabolism at a Glance is a complete review course of metabolism in health and disease and offers a unique approach to the study of this difficult discipline. Metabolism is a complicated subject involving complex molecules and interrelated pathways. These metabolic pathways are usually taught separately with the result that the student develops a detailed but compartmentalised approach to metabolism and frequently fails to see the overall picture and its physiological significance. Using the at a Glance format, the book takes the student through a complete course in intermediary metabolism in an integrated manner. The same chart is repeated throughout the book with the individual pathway under study highlighted. The book is an ideal text for introductory biochemistry courses and has established itself as an enormously popular book amongst lecturers and students alike. This third edition is fully updated and includes five new chapters to mirror those topics currently taught at undergraduate level: 1. Metabolic Channelling 2. Glucose homeostasis and Reye's Disease 3. Pentose phosphate pathway and the prodcution of NADPH 4. Tryptophan metabolism in health and disease 5. Tyrosine metabolism in health and disease

Management of Diabetic Nephropathy

Geoffrey Boner, Mark E. Cooper

editore: Informa Healthcare

pagine: 296

Developed through the collaboration of leading experts, Management of Diabetic Nephropathy provides background information on diabetes mellitus and nephropathy as well as a description of the genetic basis and factors causing progression of this disease. The book reviews the various therapeutic options at all stages of renal disease from mild to end-stage, and updates existing information on the management of complications and comorbid conditions. The first section covers general aspects of diabetes and diabetic nephropathy. It describes diabetes mellitus and its epidemiology, the epidemiology of diabetic nephropathy, and factors influencing the progression of diabetic nephropathy. The second section of the book explores treatment options for diabetic nephropathy and its complications, starting with early detection in the diabetic kidney and progressing on to end-stage renal disease. Renal involvement in diabetes mellitus is a significant cause of morbidity and mortality. The continuous increase in the prevalence of diabetes mellitus worldwide has magnified the cost of treating the complications of this disease. The time is right for a state-of-the-art review of the epidemiology, pathogenesis, and treatment of diabetic nephrology. Management of Diabetic Nephropathy does just that.
