Clinical Management of Cardiovascular Risk in Diabetes and Obesity, 1E
Adults with diabetes are two to four times more likely to have coronary heart disease or a stroke than adults without diabetes. Approximately two thirds of all people with diabetes die from some form of heart disease or stroke. Obesity is one of the main factor driving the incidence of type 2 diabetes.
The goal of this book is to address the challenges involved in the management of risk factors for the prevention of cardiovascular disease (CVD) with a specific focus on individuals with diabetes and/or obesity inclusive of other metabolic risk factors who have significantly higher risk for CVD morbidity and mortality. The authors provide detailed guidance for a comprehensive approach to risk reduction in these patients.
The handbook features the 2013 ACCE Comprehensive Diabetes Management Algorithms that include CVD Risk Factor Modifications and Complications-Centric Model for Care of the Overweight/Obese Patient algorithms.
