Understanding the importance of nanosciences in diabetes is problematic as some texts can be too technical for the novice. This book uses a reader-friendly format suitable not only for practitioners but newcomers as well. It begins with general aspects of nanotechnology and nanomedicine in diabetes. It then discusses glucose and glucose sensors bas
