Summary "This book provides a comprehensive text on the management of the person with diabetes in the community and will be helpful to dietitians, podiatrists and GPs, and especially to practice nurses, district nurses and health visitors.

It focuses on the role of the professional in assisting in self-care of the individual with diabetes.
