About the book

The present book focuses on the basic understanding of hypoglycemia. The current book will help to understand the pathophysiology of hypoglycemia, i.e how hypoglycemia occurs in the body and what are the different metabolism pathways responsible for its development. Moreover, the book will also explore the causes, clinical manifestations, management and screening of hypoglycemia.

The book will be equipped with recent findings and researches across the globe. The main emphasis will be on the screening and management part of hypoglycemia which is very important in the current scenario. Clinicians and people may come to know how self-care and management of hypoglycemia are possible with the recently developed point of care devices at home and in clinics. In diabetes mellitus, insulin resistance and hypoglycemia all play a synchronous rhythm in today's scenario.
