Gabbe co-author of new diabetes textbook edition

A new textbook, co-written by Steven G. Gabbe, M.D., dean of the School of Medicine, recently hit bookstores.

The third edition of Diabetes in Women: Adolescence, Pregnancy and Menopause seeks to provide an “updated educational and therapeutic resource for those who care for women with diabetes,” according to the authors.

Taking into consideration the growing risk factors for diabetes, and the growing number of women with diabetes, the book offers information on the “best treatment options and on dietary management, patient education, genetics, perinatal counseling, diabetes prevention, the long-term care of complications, postpartum and menopause.”

“It is our hope that in the ever-changing landscape of information and research, this edition continues to contribute to meet the expanding needs of health care professionals,” the authors said.

Other co-authors were: El Albert Reece, M.D., Ph.D., of University of Arkansas College of Medicine, and Donald R. Coustan, M.D., of Brown Medical School.
