They then cover all the major complications that can arise in a patient with poorly controlled diabetes. The authors also discuss special groups, such as adolescents and the elderly. The book features useful information for patients and their healthcare professionals on daily activities such as exercise, nutrition, driving, travelling and sick day rules.
