"With over 500 pages The Textbook of Diabetes and Pregnancy, now in its third edition, continues to be a comprehensive and detailed review of all aspects of management ranging from the basic science, biochemistry and physiology of pregnancy, to the principles of clinical practice. Spread over fully referenced chapters written by international experts in their field, all aspects of the Impact of diabetes on pregnancy are discussed… It is an excellent reference book and a highly authoritative tome on an increasingly common condition."
—Dr Mark Freeman, Glycosmedia
“The book covers everything from the physiology of diabetes in pregnancy to questions about screening and treatment. Each subject is presented as a one-sentence topic and the index is created by listing these 63 topics, which makes the book seem like a list of speakers at a seminar. The chapters do an excellent job of presenting evidence-based guidance.”
—Anthony Shanks, MD, Indiana University School of Medicine, Doody’s Book Reviews
