Book co-edited by Wyckoff examines diabetes in women
ANN ARBOR, January 2010 — We now know that gender differences between men and women can impact the symptoms and effects of disease. Therefore, how a disease affects women is an important field of study. Jennifer Wyckoff, MD, Assistant Professor of Internal Medicine, Division of Metabolism, Endocrinology & Diabetes, University of Michigan Medical School, is a co-editor of a new book with just such a focus: Diabetes in Women: Pathophysiology and Therapy (Humana Press/Springer, 2009).
The book’s co-editors are Agathocles Tsatsoulis, MD, PHD, FRCP, Department of Endocrinology, University of Ioannina Medical School, Greece; and Florence M. Brown, MD, Harvard Medical School, Department of Medicine, Joslin Diabetes Center, Boston.
Diabetes in Women is devoted to the study of women with diabetes and women at risk of diabetes, providing up-to-date information on diabetes in women throughout the life cycle. Each chapter was written by authors who are prominent in their respective fields. Dr. Wyckoff co-authored a chapter on preconception planning for women with diabetes.
The book is intended for clinicians and researchers with an interest in diabetes. The 23 chapters are divided into five sections: “Sex Differences in Cardiometabolic Risk,” “Impact of Diabetes on Women’s Health,” “Diabetes and Pregnancy,” “Offspring of the Diabetic Mother,” and “The Disease Management of Women with Diabetes.”
Dr. Wyckoff dedicated the book “to all my patients, who are my inspiration, and to my family, who are my strength.” Congratulations to Dr. Wyckoff on the completion of this work!
