Hypoglycemia--low blood sugar--is a common problem in diabetic patients taking insulin. This is a comprenhensive treatment of hypoglycemia written by one of the most prominent investigators in the field who is also an active clinician. It applies up-to-date concepts of the physiology ofglucose counter-regulation--the mechanisms that normally prevent or rapidly correct hypoglycemia and thus defend the brain from its devastating effects--and of the pathophysiology of those mechanisms which were largely unknown when previous books on the topic were published, to the diagnosis andtreatment of the clinical problem. While its early chapters provide a detailed scientific background, its clinical chapters (on hypoglycemia in diabetes mellitus, the hypoglycemic disorders and the approach to the patient with hypoglycemia) provide much practical guidance for physicians.
Philip E. Cryer is at Washington University School of Medicine.
