Diabetes Secondary to Endocrine and Pancreatic Disorders (Frontiers in Diabetes) (Hardcover)
Backordered at least 2 weeks or possibly unavailable.
The 1997 classification of diabetes mellitus, now accepted worldwide, includes a large section of 'Other specific types of diabetes', a good part of which is made up of diabetes secondary to other endocrine or pancreatic disorders. However, a comprehensive overview on how these disorders may lead to diabetes, and how to diagnose and treat them, was not available so far. Filling this gap, this book includes detailed descriptions of glucose metabolism derangements in other endocrine and pancreatic disorders.
