    Diabetes mellitus is a global epidemic with severe complications that can be of great cost. This book focuses on the complications of hypertension, heart attack or heart failure, stroke, blindness, nephropathy, neuropathy, amputations, and death, along with the prevalence and prevention of disease development. It explains distribution of the disease by age and gender, such as the development of type II diabetes in relation to obesity, which is more prevalent in younger age groups. Global mortality and costs of complications are significant, as the disease affects all ages, races, and ethnicities, making this book an invaluable resource for healthcare professionals and students everywhere.

    This book will be important to clinicians who take care of diabetes patients. I appreciate that it covers latent autoimmune diabetes in adults (LADA), maturity-onset diabetes of the young (MODY), and complications of uncontrolled diabetes in pregnant women.
