Diabetes Mellitus: Impact on Bone, Dental and Musculoskeletal Health focuses on the under recognized and managed conditions associated with diabetes, including impacts on bone health, dental health, hand, and foot disorders, wounds, infections, and musculoskeletal disorders. A full understanding of the relationship of diabetes to skeletal disorders remains elusive and many physicians who deal with such issues are unclear about causes and management. While the macro- and microvascular complications associated with diabetes mellitus are well known, complications associated with bone, dental and musculoskeletal health are not. Endocrinologists, primary care physicians, geriatricians, podiatrists, dentists, and researchers interested in diabetes mellitus associated bone, dental and musculoskeletal disorders will find this to be a comprehensive tome on the topic.

Key Features

  • Covers clinically important complications of diabetes that are less understood
  • Presents up-to-date, thoroughly referenced information for both clinicians, researchers and other healthcare providers
  • Highlights current research and treatment for skeletal deficits and complications due to diabetes types 1 and 2
