This benchmark survey of drug-nutrient interactions details the mechanisms and clinical approaches to their effective management. Providing more than a simple listing of common interactions, the authors explore, in-depth, every major aspect of the problem, including drug and nutrient disposition, enzyme systems, the effects of nutritional status on drug disposition, and the influence of food, nutrients, non-nutrient components on drug disposition and effects. They also present the latest findings on the influence of medications on nutrient status and on those interactions relevant to life-cycle stages and to specific patient groups. Separate chapters examine the effects of caffeine, charcoal broiling, grapefruit juice, alcohol, garlic, ginko biloba, dietary minerals, folate, vitamins D and K, and calcium. Extensive tables provide clinical recommendations and organize the data clearly to help the reader evaluate nutrition's critical role in optimizing drug efficacy, especially in at-risk populations.show more
