When you are sick and have diabetes, your body can make hormones that break down fat for energy. This can make ketones. Ketones raise the acid levels in your blood. This can cause you to get very sick with diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA). Usually when you have ketones, your blood glucose is high. You may also have ketones when your blood glucose is not high. DKA can happen in a person with diabetes who is sick or does not take enough insulin. It is important to check both your glucose and your keto…

Abstract
When you are sick and have diabetes, your body can make hormones that break down fat for energy. This can make ketones. Ketones raise the acid levels in your blood. This can cause you to get very sick with diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA). Usually when you have ketones, your blood glucose is high. You may also have ketones when your blood glucose is not high. DKA can happen in a person with diabetes who is sick or does not take enough insulin. It is important to check both your glucose and your ketones when you are sick. If you catch DKA early, you may be able to treat it successfully at home. DKA can become severe (very bad) or even life-threatening. If this happens, go to the Emergency Department right away. This pamphlet gives tips on how to check for ketones, what to do if you are sick, getting enough fluids, and preventing hypoglycemia (low blood sugar). Insulin adjustment guidelines for sick days, and when to go to the nearest Emergency Department are included.

Abstract
This book offers an excellent and comprehensive overview on the clinical use of fillers in aesthetic medicine. It is designed to assist dermatologists andplastic surgeons, as well as cosmetic practitioners,in the planning and performance of aesthetic medical treatment and will be invaluable for both novices and advanced users. Based on an evidence-based perspective, the book opens by describing the most common fillers, with information on their characteristics, efficacy and safety. The main part of the book then explains how to use fillers for the most frequent facial indications, such as the glabella, nasolabial folds, infraorbital hollow, nose,cheeks, lips and marionette lines. This new edition also includes a chapter on extrafacial indications, such as augmentation of the aging hand and a new comprehensive chapter on treatment planning. All specific aesthetic procedures for the facial and extrafacial areas are described step by step, with the emphasis on a hands-on approach that highlights important dos and donts. The book concludes with chapters on how to deal with adverse reactions and how to combine fillers with other aesthetic procedures, ranging from botulinum toxin A to plastic surgery.

Abstract
This well-illustrated book provides step-by-step guidance on the various techniques--microlaryngoscopic, fiberoptic endoscopic, and transcutaneous--that can be employed for the purpose of injection laryngoplasty, a surgical procedure in which a foreign material is injected into the vocal fold. The anatomy and function of the region are first explained, with identification of the causes and means of evaluation of glottic and neoglottic insufficiency. Advice is then provided on the choice of material for injection laryngoplasty, including absorbable and long-lasting options, on the basis of careful analysis that takes into account both the recent literature and the authors' own experiences. Detailed descriptions of the surgical indications and different procedures follow, and for ease of reference, clear flow charts on diagnosis and indications are also included. The book concludes with chapters on the use of injection laryngoplasty specifically in the pediatric population and on postoperative care and speech therapy following the procedure. Injection Laryngoplasty will provide valuable assistance to all surgeons wishing to perform this kind of surgery.

Abstract
The field of soft tissue augmentation has expanded rapidly in recent years. This book is distinguished from other works on the subject in that it is specifically designed as an easy-to-use practical guide. After essential introductory discussion of clinical anatomy and danger zones, information is presented on the various available dermal fillers and injection techniques. The use of dermal fillers for facial aesthetics and procedures in other parts of the body is then considered in detail. Reflecting the paradigm shift that has been occurring in the field, the most advanced techniques are highlighted. In addition, potential complications are thoroughly but succinctly discussed. The text is supplemented by informative color diagrams and images. Soft Tissue Augmentation: Principles and Practice will be of value for both novice and experienced practitioners.

Abstract
This book provides a comprehensive overview of endocrinology of the male reproductive system, explaining how it works and how, sometimes, it fails to work. World-class specialists present state of the art knowledge on all aspects, including anatomy, physiology, molecular biology, genetics, pathophysiology, clinical manifestations of testicular diseases, endocrine aspects of andrological and sexual diseases, and therapy. Extensive consideration is given to sexual development, testicular function, the clinical approach to disorders of male reproduction, male hypogonadism, sexual dysfunction, and male infertility. In addition, sociodemographic, psychological, and ethical aspects of male reproductive disorders are discussed. The book is intended as a major reference for endocrinologists, andrologists, and sexologists, as well as basic and clinical scientists. It is published as part of the SpringerReference program, which delivers access to living editions constantly updated through a dynamic peer-review publishing process.
