This book is a compilation that includes reviews on type 1 diabetes onset, complications of cardio, vascular, retinal, oral health and potential treatment options.
Authors have reviewed current literature on each of these topics to provide an excellent compendium on current understanding of how type 1 diabetes evolves and progresses with more emphasis on diabetic complications and on the current status of treatment strategies.
The etiology of diabetes remains a mystery. There is discussion about the genetic predisposition and more detailed complications including neural, nephropathy and co-morbidity in youth. The autoimmune nature of the disease including CD4+ and CD8+ T cells have been extensively explored; yet why these cells become pathogenic and the underlying causes of pathogenesis are not fully understood. This book is an excellent review of the most current understanding on development of disease with focus on diabetes complications.
