Despite widespread interest in nutrition and the public's appetite for fresh information from health professionals, health care providers often lack accurate, clinically relevant, and current information on topics of special concern to their patients. In Clinical Nutrition of the Essential Trace Elements and Minerals: The Guide for Health Professionals, John Bogden, PhD, Leslie Klevay, MD, and a host of recognized experts address this major gap in the literature with a comprehensive, up-to-date survey of the biological roles and clinical importance of mineral and trace element nutrients. These authoritative researchers and clinicians review the clinical relevance of trace elements and minerals such as chromium, copper, fluoride, iron, iodine, molybdenum, manganese, selenium, zinc, calcium, magnesium, and phosphorus to a wide variety of medical conditions. Among the diseases treated are genetic, endocrine, skeletal, cardiovascular, kidney, gastrointestinal, infectious, surgical, and ophthalmologic disorders. The authors also discuss trace element and mineral nutrition in healthy people, with chapters on pregnancy, lactation, adolescents, and older people. Chapters on preagricultural and modern consumption patterns, epidemiology, and laboratory diagnostic tests are also included. Timely and comprehensive, Clinical Nutrition of the Essential Trace Elements and Minerals: The Guide for Health Professionals offers today's physicians, nutritionists, and dietitians an authoritative resource replete with sound dietary and medical advice suitable for daily use with their clients and patients.
