Diabetes mellitus is a complex, progressive disease, which is accompanied by multiple complications. It is a metabolic disorder of the endocrine system and listed among the most common disorders in both developed and developing countries. It has a global metabolic epidemic and it is estimated that the number of people affected by the disease will rise from the current 150 to 230 million by 2025. Hyperglycaemia is a characteristic feature of diabetes mellitus and chronic hyperglycaemia could lead to long-term complications in the eyes, kidneys, nerves, heart and blood vessels.
It is more enjoyable to read about complications than to manage them. Surgical
complications are challenging for several reasons. It is difficult to watch patients and
their families suffer. Although some complications are minor setbacks that resolve
over time, some lead to longstanding disability. As surgeons, we sometimes doubt
ourselves in the wake of a complication and lose confidence in our abilities. In some
cases, surgeons avoid surgery or practice heightened defensive surgery, rendering
them surgically dysfunctional.
Objective of "Cirrhosis and its complications present": recognize the typical clinical presentation and risk factor for Cirrhosis; understand pathophysiology of Cirrhosis focusing on alcohol, viral hepatitis; describe an appropriate diagnostic plan; prescribe an appropriate therapeutic regime.
(BQ)Ebook Definition, diagnosis and classification of diabetes mellitus and its complications is anticipated that this group will expand as causes of Type 2 become known. Stages range from normoglycaemia to insulin required for survival. It is hoped that the new classification will allow better classification of individuals and lead to fewer therapeutic misjudgements.
Diabetes-related cardiovascular complications often cause premature mortality,
as well as disabilities such as blindness, foot ulceration and amputation.
The health care and social care costs of managing these complications are
enormous, but new treatments, devices and clinical management protocols
are steadily improving the longer term outcomes for people with diabetes.
This second edition has been revised and updated to reflect state of the art
A technology is only a tool.
No matter how creative its design, innovative its approach, or impressive its performance,
a technology is still defined (according to Webster) as “a manner of accomplishing
The successful adoption of a technology into the community of those who rely on it
to conduct business is a complicated journey—one that starts with the unyielding
work of designers who see something that others don’t.
The editors have done an excellent job in compiling a series of contributions
on complications after surgery. The contributors are from the UK in addition
to a substantial number of contributions from other countries.
The book opens with a fascinating chapter on the history of surgical complications.
The author concludes by pointing out that complications in surgery
today vastly exceed those encountered in the past, but hastens to add that this
is because of the complexity and variety of operative procedures performed
today compared with the past...
We appear to be on the threshold of witnessing a substantial reduction in the longterm
complications of diabetes. Modern treatment regimens, better monitoring of
control and the huge impact of improved education all combine to offer the
prospect of real progress towards prevention of complications and lessening of
progression in those in whom complications may be present. The Diabetes Control
and Complications Trial (DCCT) has provided eveidence that such can be
achieved, while the St Vincent Declaration initiative has set the standards to
enable these benefits to become reality....
The fundamental treatment and management goals in diabetes mellitus are to control and normalize blood glucose levels and to prevent diabetic complications. It also includes maintaining normal growth and development and normal body weight. Proper diet, regular exercise, weight control and different therapeutic agents are the mainstays of diabetic care and management. Weight reduction and exercise have been shown to improve tissue sensitivity to insulin and allow its proper use by target tissues.

Paraplegia remains a potential complication of spinal cord ischemic reperfusion injury (IRI) in which oxidative stress induced cyclooxygenase activities may contribute to ischemic neuronal damage. Prolonged administration of vitamin E (α-TOL), as a potent biological antioxidant, may have a protective role in this oxidative inflammatory ischemic cascade to reduce the incidence of paraplegia. The present study was designed to evaluate the preventive value of α-TOL in IRI of spinal cord.
More than 19 million Americans have diabetes—a condition that
can produce life-threatening complications. Of the two major
forms of diabetes—type 1 and type 2—type 2 comprises 90 to 95 percent
of all cases in the United States. An additional 13 million people
have the precursor to type 2 diabetes, called prediabetes. Worldwide,
type 2 diabetes affects more than 190 million people, and some experts
predict that if the current trends continue that figure could surge to
over 300 million by the year 2025....

Abnormal uterine bleeding may be caused by: hormonal factors, complications of pregnancy, systemic diseases, endometrial abnormalities (polyps), uterine or cervical problems (leiomyomas), or cancer. The pattern of abnormal bleeding is often very helpful in determining the etiology; thus, a number of terms differentiate the various types of abnormal uterine bleeding. Menorrhagia (hypermenorrhea) is prolonged or heavy menstrual flow that may be further complicated by clots.
