    "… American Journal of Pharmaceutical Education

    …The current volume provides a comprehensive, up-to-date review of diabetes mellitus….The format is different from that of many other textbooks. Physiology, biochemistry, anatomy and molecular biology are kept quite short. Instead of the encyclopaedic format, the authors try to outline the most effective diagnostic and therapeutic approaches to clinical problems.

    …The book includes rare systems as well as latest developments…. The new volume may serve physicians to get familiar with new clinical information and provide effective treatment to patients with diabetes.
