DAVIDSON’S DIABETES MELLITUS. 5th Edition. Anne Peters Harmel. Ruchi MathurSaunders.

This text is meant for the practicing physician and the internist, focusing on the care of patients with Diabetes Mellitus. Davidson’s provides the most up-to-date information available on how to treat a patient in the throes of glucose intolerance. Davidson’s is in depth in its examination of the impact of diet on maintaining satisfactory glucose levels; also explores the most recent drug advancements and ways that medicines can be combined for more efficient long-term maintenance of the diabetic. Harmel and Mathur have done a comprehensive job putting this volume together, investigating many “routine” issues that plague the Diabetes Mellitus patient (such as how to avoid infection through proper hygiene and the importance of keeping weight under control to avoid spikes in blood sugar). Another “fresh” aspect of this text is how it deals with the psychological impact of disease and the affect Diabetes Mellitus has on sexual desire and sexual function. This is a sound and valuable manual for the use of the general physician; it would also prove useful for nurse practitioners who administer blood glucose testing and who review maintenance therapies directly with patients.

Appropriate for University libraries and for public sector libraries as a health reference text.
