    Diabetic Neurology offers a unique focus on the broad neurological complications of diabetes, bridging the clinical divide between diabetology and neurology with a practitioner-friendly guide for the recognition, investigation and management of diabetic patients with neurological disease.

    This book provides a comprehensive, practical review of the problems encountered at the interface of diabetes and neurology. The point form format facilitates a thorough summary of the diabetological and neurological approach to patients and their related disease states.

    The authors of this book bring together their expertise in these shared fields to address the problems neurologists may encounter in diabetic patients and the important neurological issues to consider in diabetes clinics. The emphasis is on adult patients and some topics are deliberately covered in more than one section, depending on the context of the discussion.

    The book’s three sections provide:

        * An overview of diabetes care directed towards neurologists and of neurological basics directed towards diabetologists
        * A summary of various neurological presentations, both common and serious, which both specialties must be cognizant of
        * A discussion of rare conditions, their neurological and diabetic complications

    This book is a comprehensive and useful reference for diabetologists, endocrinologists, internists and neurologists.
