Foreword

Diabetes and hypertension are two of the most prevalent chronic diseases in the world. It is predicted that by 2030, India, China and the United States will have the largest number of people with diabetes. Concerning the pattern in developing countries, Prof. Mohamed Eddouks and Dr. Debprasad Chattopadhyay have crafted a book entitled “Phytotherapy in the Management of Diabetes and Hypertension”, bringing out a timely volume with contributors spread across three countries. Various aspects of these two prevalent diseases among the places are discussed. A number of topics are covered, including cellular nutrition and nutritional medicine in diabetes and related complications, as well as the relationship between diabetes and hypertension. As control of these diseases is critical to prevent their complications, phytotherapy in the management of diabetes and hypertension are also introduced

This is an eBook different from the traditional concept of hard or soft cover book. This approach will make the book more easily accessible to a wider section of readers. It is a great pleasure on my part to pen a foreword for this nice, multiauthored, international publication on a topic very close to my heart. I wish the editors great success and will look forward to see a regular series culminating from this beginning. I also extend my sincere thanks to all the contributors for their excellent efforts in making this book a success.
