Summary The increasing incidence of type II diabetes, often in association with cardiovascular disease, constitutes one of the major healthcare challenges of the 21st century. However, physicians can now deploy a wide range of therapeutic agents, singly and in combination, to help lower and stabilise blood sugar levels.

In the first section of the book the authors review the various agents used to manage.
