This easy-to-use book covers all aspects of clinical nutrition in practice, using an accessible question and answer format ideal for the busy healthcare professional.

Questions such as 'What is the definition of dietary fibre?' and 'What are the types of enteral nutrition?' are answered with refreshing clarity as the authors move from the basics of human nutrition through to the clinical needs of patients suffering various disease states, including cardiovascular disease, diabetes, neurological disorders and obesity. Special attention is given to nutrition during cancer treatment and those suffering from HIV/AIDS.

Nutritionists, dietitians and other health professionals working with patients with impaired nutrition or special nutritional requirements, cardiologists and oncologists will find this a refreshing approach to an important subject. Nurses, medical students and those working in the medical nutrition industry will also find this a handy guide.

Easy-to-follow style with questions clearly posed and evidence-based answers

Outlines the basics of health and nutrition before addressing individual disease states

Written by practitioners, for practitioners
