Diabetes Mellitus Issues for the Indian Women

by Sarita Bajaj

This book focuses on Diabetes Mellitus: Issues for the Indian Woman. Diabetes has emerged as a global health problem and is rapidly gaining the status of a pandemic with over 425 million people affected across the globe. India stands second in the world as far as the number of people living with diabetes is concerned and women make up almost half of this figure. This book consists of 7 sections following as diabetes, glycemic management, metabolic health, complications, endocrine health, gynecologic health, and psychosocial health, which are further divided into 27 chapters. In this book, chapters focusing on metabolic, endocrine, psychosocial, obstetric, and gynecologic health, comorbidities, and management. Diabetes Mellitus: Issues for the Indian Woman is designed to be current, compact, and used as a clinician’s handbook rather than a reference textbook. It becomes very much more meaningful because the lnternational Diabetes Federation has announced that the theme of World Diabetes Day 2017 will be "Women and Diabetes”.
