Advances in Metabolic Disorders, Supplement 1: Early Diabetes covers the discussions during the first International Symposium on Early Diabetes. The book discusses the views of the role of genetic factors in diabetes; the genetic problem posed by the relatively high frequency of diabetes; the relationship between diabetes and prediabetes in the mother; and the congenital defect in the offspring. The text also describes the report on the genetics of diabetes among the Pima Indians, as well as the genetics of animals with spontaneous diabetes.
The pathophysiology of diabetes mellitus, the concept of progression from prediabetes to chemical diabetes and then to overt diabetes, and the effect of aging on carbohydrate metabolism are also considered. The book further tackles the epidemiology of early diabetes, as well as the natural history of diabetes. The text concludes by looking into the treatment of early diabetes, including topics on insulin treatment of children with a late stage of chemical diabetes; complementary arguments in favor of the betacytotrophic action of the hypoglycemic sulphonamides; and the use of oral hypoglycemic compounds. Endocrinologists, biochemists, physiologists, and researchers working on the treatment of diabetes will find the book invaluable.
