by John E. MorleyThe prevalence of type 2 diabetes, which represents roughly 90% of all diabetes, increases with age and affects 18-20% of people over age 65 in the United States. Diagnosis and treatment of the older population have unique challenges. Treatment of the older patient with diabetes must take into consideration not only the standard complications, but also conditions such as cognitive impairment, falls and impaired function. This up-to-date new issue of Clinics in Geriatric Medicine thoroughly explores this current topic that affects many older people. Guest Editor John Morley includes such topics as Insulin Resistance Syndrome, Hyperlipidemia and the Older Diabetic, and New Medication and the Management of the Older Diabetic. With the population of elderly patients living with diabetes growing every day, this issue is a must-have clinical reference for any Geriatrician.
