Carefully laid out with relevant and clearly explained examples, and containing much new material, this new edition covers in an integrated way: concepts and mechanisms, digestion and intestinal absorption, organs and tissues, endocrine organs and hormones, the integration of carbohydrate, fat and protein metabolism, the nervous system and metabolism, lipoprotein metabolism, diabetes mellitus, energy balance and body weight regulation and how the body copes with some extreme situations.
The author, Keith Frayn, who has many years’ experience teaching and researching in this subject, has written a book of great clarity, which is an extremely valuable tool for scientists, practitioners and students working and studying across a broad range of allied health sciences including nutrition, dietetics, sports science and nursing. Students of medicine, physiology, biochemistry and biological sciences will also find much of great use and interest in this book. All libraries in research establishments, universities and medical schools where these subjects are studied and taught should have multiple copies of this excellent book on their shelves.
Keith Frayn is Professor of Human Metabolism at the University of Oxford, UK.Reviews of the First Edition
‘This is an excellent textbook’: Trends in Endocrinology and Metabolism
‘The coverage is excellent for students following courses such as nutrition and human biology’:Biologist
‘This book is ideal for medical students’:Australian Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology
"It is hard to find a textbook that gives a better basis for the understanding of Human metabolism and nutrition, that is so well designed and actually quite fun to read as this one. This book is my first choice for a textbook for my medical students and for nursing school too. It is well suited for any kind of studies of metabolism at a higher level because of its ease at explaining the basics and the frameworks needed for the understanding of metabolism. It is the first book I give to my doctorial students when they need to freshen up their knowledge and the basics in metabolism when starting research in clinical nutrition and metabolism...if anyone is looking for the most interesting and fun book to read as an in depth introduction to human metabolism and nutrition, this is it!"
