            Despite decades of scientific advances, the very functioning of our bodies remains misunderstood. In Burn, evolutionary biologist, Herman Pontzer offers pioneering research that provides a refreshing insight on the science of the human metabolism. Interweaving both anthropologica...l observations and anecdote, Pontzer provides an accessible understanding of biology, encouraging us to rethink our understanding of the metabolism and, in decoding its complexities, truly understand how we can make our bodies thrive.

            Insulin Pumps and Continuous Glucose Monitoring

            Insulin Pumps and Continuous Glucose Monitoring (Trade Paperback / Paperback, Second Edition)

            By Kaufman, Francine R.; With Westfall, Emily

            Being diagnosed with diabetes, no longer means giving up an active life. New technology, such as insulin pumps and continuous glucose monitors, can help people with both type 1 and type 2 diabetes stay active and flexible and maintain healthy attitudes and lifestyles. Designed to... mimic the action of the pancreas, insulin pumps are small, pager-sized devices that infuse insulin under the skin based on programmed rates. Not only does this eliminate the need for injections, it also allows for small amounts of insulin to to be released throughout the day, and large amounts to be administered at meals based on what's being eaten. When paired with a continuous glucose monitor, which provides a continuous readout of glucose levels, users can enjoy accurate, tight glucose control that provides much greater flexibility and freedom than the old check-and-inject method. Dr. Francine Kaufman's Insulin Pumps and Continuous Glucose Monitoring explains the advances in glucose management, and thoroughly discusses the technology, as well as the physical and psychological aspects of diabetes care. It provides a comprehensive medical approach toward diabetes management and pump therapy with an appreciation of the real-life challenges and frustrations faced every day by people with diabetes.

            Managing Diabetes and Hyperglycemia in the Hospital Setting: A Clinician's Guide

            Managing Diabetes and Hyperglycemia in the Hospital Setting: A Clinician's Guide (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

            By Draznin, Boris

            Approximately 11% of adults in the United States have diabetes and globally the number of people with diabetes exceeds 345 million. As the number of patients with diabetes, both diagnosed and undiagnosed, increases annually, it is not surprising that the number of patients with d...iabetes who are admitted to the hospital also increases. Patients with diabetes may be admitted to the hospital due to acute or chronic complications of diabetes, but they are more often hospitalized for other medical or surgical problems. The fact that they have diabetes becomes a significant co-morbidity that may affect the outcome of their hospitalization. Once in the hospital, patients with diabetes or hyperglycemia may be admitted to the Intensive Care Unit, require urgent or elective surgery, enteral or parenteral nutrition, intravenous insulin infusion, or therapies that impact significantly on glycemic control (e.g., steroids). Because many clinical outcomes are influenced by the degree of glycemic control, knowledge of the best practice in inpatient diabetes management is extremely important. The field of inpatient management of diabetes and hyperglycemia has grown substantially in the last several years. This body of knowledge is summarized in this book, so it can reach the audience of hospitalists, endocrinologists, nurses and other team members who take care of hospitalized patients with diabetes and hyperglycemia.
