Diabetes mellitus is an extremely common disease that is reaching epidemic proportions owing to major increases in the incidence of obesity and the propensity for a sedentary life. The need for physicians to familiarize themselves with all forms of diabetes is essential and the Atlas of Diabetes Mellitus goes a long way toward making the task easier for both qualified physicians and those in training.
"…I am unaware of any other illustrated text with the scope and breadth of Dr Scobie's An Atlas of Diabetes Mellitus….I have no doubt that both my students and I will find this book useful for many years to come. I suspect that those of you who choose to add this excellent atlas to your library will find that you will also share my enthusiasm for this delightful book."
