This book is an effective guide to improve the metrics (glycemic, lipid, blood pressure) of diabetes care. Using an algorithmic approach, you can improve patient outcomes. Drs. Davidson and Hsia provide documentation and evidence-based reasons to meet the glycemic, lipid, and blood pressure goals of the American Diabetes Association and background information for the drugs used to meet those outcome goals. In addition, based on the patient's response, the book describes what therapeutic changes need to be made to provide the most efficient and effective care for patients.
