Description: The increasing incidence of diabetes, often in association with cardiovascular and renal disease, constitutes one of the major healthcare challenges of the 21st century. However, physicians can now deploy a wide range of therapeutic agents, singly and in combination, to help lower and stabilise blood sugar levels. Drawing on the expertise of internationally-recognised authorities in their fields, this new volume describes the modes of action of each of these types of treatment and evaluates their effectiveness.
