Virtually all patients with diabetes can improve glycemic control through intensive management. Following the personalized treatment is complex, but studies have shown it to be very effective in avoiding or controlling side effects and thus today, it is commonly used in diabetes care. This book covers the rationale and physiological basis of intensive therapy, patient selection and education, insulin regimens, pump therapy, monitoring, and nutrition management.
