Description

Diabetes mellitus is one of the most widespread diseases in industrialized countries. Its macro- and microvascular complications lead to severe symptoms, mainly affecting the heart, the kidneys, the eyes and the peripheral nervous system. Since optimal blood glucose control is only achieved in a minority of patients, specific treatment options are needed who exert their effects despite hyperglycemia.

This book gives insights into the pathophysiology and pathogenesis of diabetic complications. It shows a potential for pathogenetically-based therapeutic interventions which affect damaging pathways of glycolysis in:

  • diabetic nephropathy
  • neuropathy
  • retinopathy and
  • diabetes-associated cardiovascular events

This book is based upon the lectures held at an international expert meeting, performed on the occasion of the 44th Meeting of the European Association for the Study of Diabetes in Rome in September 2008. It adresses specialists in internal medicine and diabetologists as well as general practioners and all health care workers who deal with the challenging task of caring for patients with diabetes mellitus.

Key Features:

  • Insights into the pathophysiology and pathogenesis of diabetic complications
  • Pathogenetically-based therapeutic interventions which affect damaging pathways of glycolysis in diabetic nephropathy, neuropathy, retinopathy, and diabetes-associated cardiovascular events
  • Based upon the lectures held at the 44th Meeting of the European Association for the Study of Diabetes in Rome in September 2008
