Diabetes and Hypoglycemia includes in one complete volume all of the latest, most vital research on this critical condition of diabetes. Hypoglycemia, otherwise known as low blood glucose, can lead to serious problems, including coma and death in the most severe cases. It is a common side effect for intensive diabetes management, in which blood glucose levels are kept as close to normal levels as possible, often using insulin in combination with physical activity, diet, and possibly other medications. Because hypoglycemia is a common affliction for those working to improve their diabetes care and because of the condition's seriousness, a complete understanding of the complication will help further the treatment of people with diabetes.
Incredible new understandings of this condition have been made in the past few years, and much of that key research has been published in the highly regarded scholarly journals of the American Diabetes Association, Diabetes and Diabetes Care. Studies have explored the causes of hypoglycemia and its cascading effects throughout the body, in turn posing further health risks for the future.
It is essential that diabetes care providers and researchers have as complete an understanding of hypoglycemia as possible. Achieving this requires knowing the latest data on hypoglycemia from the most reliable sources out there. There are no better diabetes resources out there than the ADA's peer-reviewed journals.
Articles are selected for this volume based on their clinical relevance, as shown by the number of citations through other published medical articles and by the number of times the article was viewed online. A steering committee that consists of the top medical staff at the ADA then pares down the list to the most important articles on the subject. No article is older than three years old, ensuring that only the latest and most relevant information is contained in the volume.
The American Diabetes Association is the nation's leading voluntary health organization supporting diabetes research, information, and advocacy and the leading publisher of comprehensive diabetes information. It is based in Alexandria, VA.
