Pickup and Williams' Textbook of Diabetes has established itself as the definitive reference work in the field, providing lucid, comprehensive coverage of the subject with full color illustrations and beautiful presentation. The focus of the book is very much clinical, but throughout the coverage of basic science is strong and pervades most clinical components of the book. The significant advances that have occurred in our understanding of the disease are reflected in this new edition.
A total of 74 chapters are organized into 20 sections covering all the issues relating to the clinical management of the disease, from the historical context, normal physiology, pathogenesis of diabetes, diabetes complications, the practicalities of living with diabetes, the organization of care and future developments.
The chapter list has been revised and updated to further refine the coverage. At least a third of the contributors are new and have provided a wealth of fresh material to the book. All the other chapters have been thoroughly rewritten.
