As the incidence of childhood obesity continues to dramatically increase, the emergence of type 2 and the increasing incidence of type 1 diabetes in young people demonstrate that childhood diabetes, like adult onset diabetes, is a complex and heterogeneous condition presenting new obstacles to the practicing clinician. Epidemiology of Pediatric and Adolescent Diabetes is the first source on the market to address this critical paradigm shift and offer insights and recommendations as to how clinicians can better care for this growing patient population.
Epidemiology of Pediatric and Adolescent Diabetes:
- is the first book devoted specifically to the epidemiology of diabetes in children and adolescents
- examines the prevalence and clinical manifestations of both type 1 and type 2 diabetes in children and adolescents
- reviews clinical trials and outcomes, risk factors, complications, and interventions
- includes practical discussions pertaining to environmental and behavioral risk factors, genetics, screening, treatment and prevention, and how they relate to the type 1 and 2 diabetes in adolescents
