Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Amy Hess-Fischl, MS, RD, LDN, BC-ADM, CDE (University of Chicago Medical Center)
Description: This is the second edition of a book from the Nutrition Society, the largest society for the study of nutrition in Europe. Written eight years after the first edition, it focuses on the nutrition needs in the metabolically compromised.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide an overview of the nutrition needs in chronic and acute conditions, with the focus on individuals who are metabolically compromised. While there are a multitude of books covering these exact topics, this is geared toward the healthcare professionals in the U.K. and may be needed more so than in the U.S.
Audience: The book is written for those with an interest in nutrition in the clinical setting, including students, nutritionists, dietitians, and other healthcare professionals. It may not be appropriate for first-year students since it presumes that readers have a basic knowledge of nutrition and it covers more advanced topics.
Features: The first few chapters cover screening and assessment techniques, then the book delves into a variety of conditions, including metabolic disorders, eating disorders, and specific conditions involving the major organs. Each chapter includes a section of key messages, an introduction to the topic, specific concepts, and references and further reading. Since it is based on treatment in the U.K., some topics may not be as useful to U.S. practitioners. The pediatric chapter goes into great depth, with many tables and figures, including growth charts. It covers infant feeding, tube feeding versus parenteral nutrition in infants and children, adolescence and eating disorders, and obesity in children. The chapter on nutrition and the pancreas includes information on diabetes, using the WHO guidelines, whereas U.S. practitioners use American Diabetes Association guidelines. It also discusses medications that are available only in the U.K.
Assessment: While this is an interesting read, it is not as valuable for U.S. practitioners since the information is specific to the U.K. For U.K. practitioners, though, this does seem to be a good resource and reference for healthcare professionals working in the clinical setting.
