Overview

"The fifth edition of Nutrition and Diet Therapy Reference Dictionary fills a need that remains unmet by today's medical dictionaries. The most comprehensive dictionary covering nutrition and diet therapy available today, this wide-ranging, authoritative volume covers all aspects of nutrition." Much more than just a dictionary, the entries don't simply define, they also include the main reasons for suggested nutrition therapy and dietary guidelines. Authors Lagua and Claudio cover 160 different diets; nutrition therapy for more than 360 disorders, including inborn error of metabolism; 170 drugs and their effects on nutrition; and more than 150 nutritional products with their primary uses and composition. Of particular importance are public health issues for the new millenium, and dietary recommendations for prevention of major degenerative diseases such as obesity, coronary heart disease, hypertension, diabetes mellitus, and cancer. With more than 3,200 carefully selected entries, all practitioners in the fields of nutrition and dietetics, as well as educators, students, and others interested in nutrition, will find the updated Nutrition and Diet Therapy Reference Dictionary a compact and comprehensive reference tool.

The book contains black-and-white illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

Gilbert J Cusson
This is the fourth edition of a comprehensive nutrition and diet therapy reference dictionary that can be used by nutritionists, physicians, pharmacists, nurses, and students. Definitions are cross referenced, accurate, and clearly written. The purpose of this reference dictionary is to define nutrition terminology based on the frequency of use or importance of a term in relation to nutrition. This dictionary is a very easy to use desk reference. The material is cross referenced well, and the book provides quick access to nutrition information. The definitions and table of appendixes will be useful to all practitioners in the nutrition field but especially for nutrition and dietitian students. This book contains black-and-white illustrations in the appendixes. Special features of this dictionary include entries on 130 different diets; nutrition therapy recommendations for more than 350 disorders, including inborn errors of metabolism; 145 drugs and their effects on nutrition; and more than 150 nutritional products. The appendix contains 50 sections with excellent tables of abbreviations, height and weight, nutritional assessment, laboratory interpretations, enteral and parenteral formulas, food tables with mineral and vitamin contents, and much more. This dictionary contains an enormous amount of information on nutrition that is not found in standard medical dictionaries. The drugs included in this dictionary are well defined as to their effect on nutrition status or interaction with nutrients. This reference book would be an excellent addition to all health science, drug information and nutrition libraries as well as nutrition students.
