Overview

Written for medical, nursing and physician assistant students, residents, dietetic interns, and health professionals in practice, Medical Nutrition and Disease: A Case-Based Approach, 4th Edition, is a practical guide to the role of nutrition in everyday clinical practice. The new edition of this best-selling text has been updated by nationally recognized nutritionists and physicians who teach nutrition in medical schools and residency programs.
Key features include:
• 24 clinical cases simulating actual patient work-ups to reinforce the material
• Updated multiple choice review questions which allow readers to test their knowledge and prepare for courses, certifying exams, and earn C.E. credits
• Two new chapters: Vitamins and Minerals and Cancer Prevention
• Four new cases: Bariatric Surgery, Metabolic Syndrome, Hypertension, and Sleep Apnea

Moving from the fundamentals of nutrition assessment and vitamins to more specific chapters on pathophysiology of chronic diseases to oncology and nutrition support, this book teaches you how to diagnose and manage nutritional problems, integrate nutrition into your clinical practice, and answer patients’ most common questions.

In addition, registered dieticians can earn 45 C.E. credits from the American Dietetic Association by successfully completing the multiple choice questions included in the book. Everything has been pre-approved, there are no additional fees.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"This book provides a comprehensive, up-to-date, evidence-based guide which takes the reader through all matters relating to nutrition and disease and around issues of value of nutrition in health promotion and disease prevention". (British Journal of Hospital Medicine, 1 January 2011)

"The book starts with a clear, practical and thorough guide to basic nutritional assessment in clinical care, which emphasizes the importance and potential pitfalls of taking a diet history. . . the chapters are written so that they can be clearly understood by those with little experience in the area of dietetics, so this book would be useful for any practitioner wanting to improve knowledge when other resources are unavailable, or other options for continual professional development are not attainable". (International Journal of Therapy and Rehabilitation, 1 December 2010)

"For practicing physicians and nutritionists. with many references. Recommended." (Pediatric Endocrinology Reviews, April 2010)
