As a treatment for diabetes, the current American Diabetes Association guidelines are a disaster for Type 1 diabetics. The ADA recommendations actually make blood sugar control much harder and increase the danger of hypoglycemic episodes. The Ketogenic Diet for Type 1 Diabetes eBook provides the practical information to implement a ketogenic diet in the context of managing insulin needs. Coauthored with Dr. Keith Runyan, a physician who treats his own type 1 diabetes with a ketogenic diet (with the result of an HbA1c of 5.0) the book contains over 300 pages of referenced, applicable information on getting off the blood sugar roller coaster, avoiding hypoglycemia, lowering HbA1c test results and avoiding diabetic complications.

Did you know that the ADA recommends a diet which makes long term diabetic complications more likely? The diet the American Diabetes Association recommends calls for 45-60 carbs per meal. As a result of that carb load, blood sugar spikes, insulin is administered, and blood sugar crashes. We call this the blood sugar roller coaster. The logical solution is to get off the blood sugar roller coaster completely. Following a low carb, high fat ketogenic diet stops this blood sugar spike/crash cycle, helps you reduce or even eliminate medications such as metformin, greatly reduce insulin needs, and avoid long-term diabetic complications.

The 3rd edition of PACES for the MRCP has been fully revised and updated throughout to retain its pole position as the textbook to accompany core medical training (CMT) and prepare candidates for success in the Practical Assessment of Clinical Examination Skills and a future specialty career. Features Fully revised for the new Station 5 and completely updated throughout. Promotes understanding and deeper learning of modern medicine applicable to PACES and the specialist registrar. Emphasis on clinical assessment – history-taking, examination and communication skills – equipping candidates with appropriate differential diagnoses from which to develop the right diagnosis. Encourages candidates to question why a diagnosis has arisen and consider its consequences. For example, ‘Heat failure’ is a not a diagnosis until a candidate has considered the differential diagnoses of breathlessness and decided why heart failure is most likely, and then considered its cause (not always ischaemic heart disease), its presentation (acute, chronic, left or right ventricular or both) and, most importantly, the effects of it and its treatments on a patient’s life. This 3rd edition of PACES for the MRCP continues to provide fully revised, up-to-date, evidence-based coverage of investigations and treatments. Whilst the emphasis of PACES is on clinical skills, candidates who understand when, for example, a patient with rheumatoid arthritis might benefit from a biologic agent and how this will influence inflammatory disease, is better equipped for success. A one-volume text giving candidates complete preparation for the PACES exam within one portable volume 250 cases organised into the 5 stations of the PACES exam – respiratory and abdominal system, history taking, cardiovascular and nervous system, communication and ethics and skin, locomotion, eyes and endocrine systems Engaging question-and-answer approach at the end of each case – excellent preparation for the exam Boxed tips highlight vital information – helps identify what is most important to remember Produced in full colour throughout Colour coding for each station Many more illustrations added - now over 300 clinical photographs and line drawings in colour Many more cases added, bringing the number up to 250 - 50 per station History-taking and communication skills stations now revised so that they exactly mimic the requirements of the exam

«Tenemos verdaderamente la posibilidad de realizar progresos hacia una vida más larga y más sana para millones de personas.» «Es preciso seguir trabajando aumentar la asignación de recursos e intensificar la colaboración entre los distintos asociados.» - Dr. Jong-Wook Lee Director General OMS El Informe sobre la salud en el mundo 2003 - Forjemos el futuro predice que en los próximos años se lograrán importantes mejoras sanitarias en el mundo. El Dr. Jong-Wook Lee Director General de la OMS afirma que la OMS tiene la ambición de «ayudar a todos los seres humanos en especial a los más pobres a forjar un futuro mejor». El informe sostiene que una nueva campaña que permita mejorar la salud y hacerla más equitativa es una parte esencial de la labor internacional en pro de la justicia y la seguridad. Partiendo de lo aprendido del pasado en particular con relación al movimiento de la Salud para Todos puesto en marcha hace 25 años el informe de este año se centra en las principales mejoras sanitarias que se podrán alcanzar en los próximos años y muestra cómo la OMS y la comunidad sanitaria internacional pueden lograr esos objetivos. Con el telón de fondo de las ambiciosas metas que representan los Objetivos de Desarrollo del Milenio el Informe sobre la salud en el mundo 2003 presenta una perspectiva general que comprende un análisis de los principales desafíos sanitarios actuales y un programa de acción para mejorar la salud en el mundo. En la sección dedicada a las enfermedades infecciosas se señala que ha de prestarse especial atención al VIH/SIDA a la poliomielitis cuya erradicación está cerca y a las nuevas infecciones de las que el SRAS es un ejemplo ilustrativo. Otra sección importante trata de la salud de la mujer y el niño. La sección dedicada a las enfermedades no transmisibles se centra en las enfermedades cardiovasculares los traumatismos y la prosecución de la lucha antitabáquica. Con el fin de lograr las mejoras sanitarias que están a su alcance los países han de contar con sistemas de salud eficaces. El informe muestra cómo pueden robustecerse esos sistemas combinando los servicios de atención primaria y los servicios especializados mediante una red eficiente e integrada de referencia. En ese aspecto al igual que en toda su labor la OMS reitera su compromiso de colaborar con los países para responder a los retos sanitarios a nivel nacional y local.
