Diabetes in Women $95.00
Editors: Eliza I. Swahn
Book Description:
Diabetes is a unique condition for women. When compared with men, women have a 50 percent greater risk of diabetic coma, a condition brought on by poorly controlled diabetes and lack of insulin. Women with diabetes have heart disease rates similar to men, but more women with diabetes die from a first heart attack than do men with diabetes. Diabetes also poses special challenges during pregnancy. This new book discusses and presents topical data on the effects of diabetes in women, such as: diabetes mellitus in pregnant women and birth outcomes, assessing bone condition in women with Type 2 diabetes, depression and cardiovascular disease in women with diabetes, and others.
