Описание: Addressing a topic of utmost importance in the field, this text addresses the epidemiology, diagnosis, assessment, and management of patients with metabolic syndrome-focusing on implications for cardiovascular disease risk. With an abundance of clearly organized tables, flowcharts, and practice guidelines, this blue-ribbon source succinctly analyzes recent clinical trials, compares and assesses recent and emerging therapies, and provides recommendations for the improved assessment and treatment of patients, while supplying a state-of-the-art overview of approaches to optimize and enhance patient care.
Описание: This collection of papers represents an edited version of the Proceedings of the 9th European Symposium on Metabolism which was held at the University of
Padua (Italy) from October 12-14, 2006. As did the Symposium itself, this work unites under a single cover topics dealing with four important metabolic alterations: diabetes, obesity,
hyperlipidemia and hypertension. Of vital interest to the scienti
ic community because of their cost in human life and medical expenditure, the latest edition of this Symposium received much attention from investigators in these fields.The 2006 edition
focuses on the most recent epidemiologic findings on the role of oxidative stress and of endothelial dysfunction on the development of atherosclerosis.
Other topics of
particular interest are: abdominal obesity, pro-inflammatory adipokines and atherogenesis; the metabolic syndrome and cardiovascular global risk; coronary and cerebrovascuclar
disease in diabetes and in the metabolic syndrome. Finally, the management, prevention and treatment of the metabolic syndrome and its cardiovascular complications are examined in
the light of several recent clinical trials in these fields. This volume will certainly be of interest to all those practitioners and specialists who are looking for a broad, though specific
overview on several aspects of insulin resistance as a possible pathogenetic mechanism and a guide to preventing and treating the metabolic syndrome and its cardiovascular
complications in their patients.
Описание: Highlights practical issues involved in managing patients with the metabolic syndrome. This book covers various aspects of the metabolic syndrome and its constituent diseases, including obesity, cardiovascular disease and diabetes. It explains the risk factors for the metabolic syndrome and how these vary among different ethnic groups.
Описание: Offers a critical review and discussion of the knowledge gathered on Metabolic Syndrome (MS) and analyzes the interplay between oxidative stress, chronic inflammation and angiogenesis features. This volume focuses on various discoveries and progress toward possible therapeutic strategies.

In the historical record there is abundant evidence that obesity was a medical and health concern as long as medicine has been practiced. The idea of diet and exercise are bulwarks in the fight against obesity in history from the time of Hippocrates to the 16th century?a span of 2,000 years. However, our scientific understanding of this problem is only a little over 200 years old. An examination of the root cause of what many consider the obesity epidemic, A Guide to Obesity and the Metabolic Syndrome traces the origins and types of obesity and its treatment.
Examining in detail the developing treatment for obesity, this book provides:
A history of obesity, including treatment, proposed causes, and perceptions
An examination of the causes and problems associated with obesity
A discussion of lifestyle, diet, exercise, and treatment strategies
A detailed look at the medications and surgeries available for obesity
The fact that we have an epidemic of obesity today that is covering the globe suggests that the strategically simple ideas of eating less and exercising more, ideas that require commitment and personal involvement by the individual, have not been very successful. As we move forward in trying to understand this problem, we need to be alert to strategies and tactics that may not require individual motivation and commitment?history has shown that they do not work well. This book supplies guidance on developing and designing novel strategic interventions against obesity and metabolic disorders.
Описание: Metabolic syndrome is the most common clinical disorder, affecting as many as 60% of middle-aged and older adults. This book includes updated clinical views on metabolic syndrome; its definition and current and current and future treatment options; and critical evaluation of the current status of each of the syndrome components, including the latest knowledge of casual mechanisms. It is anticipated that this book will be of value to all of those seeking a comprehensive update on the metabolic syndrome. It will provide a broad basis for advancing research in the multiple intersecting disciplines encompassed by the metabolic syndrome.
Описание: Metabolic syndrome is a set of risk factors that includes: abdominal obesity, a decreased ability to process glucose (insulin resistance), dyslipidemia (unhealthy lipid levels), and hypertension. Patients who have this syndrome have been shown to be at an increased risk of developing cardiovascular disease and/or type 2 diabetes. Metabolic syndrome is a common condition that goes by many names (dysmetabolic syndrome, syndrome X, insulin resistance syndrome, obesity syndrome, and Reaven's syndrome). This is the first book to fully explain the relationships between psychiatric illness, Metabolic Syndrome, diet, sleep, exercise, medications, and lifestyle choices. Metabolic Syndrome is a major risk factor in Major Depression, Alzheimer's Disease, Sleep Disorders, Sexual Dysfunction, Fibromyalgia, and several other illnesses of psychiatric significance. Conversely, some psychiatric illnesses tend to predispose patients to Metabolic Syndrome. Of further interest is the fact that some of the medications used in the treatment of psychiatric illnesses have been found to cause or exacerbate Metabolic Syndrome. The author here provides basic information about what genetic predispositions, medical conditions, and lifestyle choices make Metabolic Syndrome more likely to occur. Among the contributing factors that are discussed are genetics, habitual intake of high glycemic index carbohydrates, fructose, saturated fats, trans fatty acids, vitamins, micronutrients, obesity, smoking, and lack of exercise. The author describes the actual mechanisms by which Metabolic Syndrome progresses and causes damage in the body, including the action of insulin and the pathophysiology of insulin resistance. Details are provided on what occurs in the liver, pancreas, muscle, fat cells, and immune system as Metabolic Syndrome progresses. New findings are presented on fat cells, including the fact that they are beginning to be considered as endocrine cells. There is a sub
Описание: A guide to the prevention and management of diabetes in patients with mental illnesses. It focuses on the link between psychotropic medications - including antidepressants, mood stabilizers, and second-generation antipsychotics - and the development of obesity, diabetes, lipid abnormalities, and other metabolic disorders.
Описание: Well-known and highly respected diabetes authority Ronald A. Codario, MD, details for busy primary care practitioners the state of the art in diagnosing and managing diabetes, as well as in reducing patient risk factors. Using an evidence-based approach, Dr. Codario explains, in simple clinical terms that avoid the complexity of much larger textbooks, our latest understanding of the pathophysiology of diabetes, its treatment with insulin and oral agents, and the management of its risk factors. The author also extensively reviews such major topics as the metabolic syndrome, the role of exercise and nutrition, and the key issues associated with the use of herbs and nutraceuticals. Also included are continuing medical education (CME) questions that provide the opportunity to acquire up to a maximum of 10 AMA/PRA category 1 CME credits. For the past 15 years, the author has given CME lectures on diabetes throughout the country.

Описание: Now available in Spanish, this chart explains Metabolic Syndrome, a constellation of factors including obesity, high glucose levels in the blood, high blood
pressure, and abnormal cholesterol levels. The graphics and easy-to-follow text illustrate and explain each of the risk factors in detail. The chart also lists causes, treatments, and the
medical conditions associated with this disease, which affects about 1 in 4 Americans.
