Review quote

From the reviews: "This book brings together experts in gastroenterology and nutrition to discuss the management of common clinical nutrition problems in a practical manner. ... It is predominantly aimed at clinicians and especially practicing gastroenterologists. However, any member of a clinical nutrition support team (dietitian, medical student, resident, GI fellow, mid-level extender, and surgeon) will also benefit greatly from the clinical nutrition pearls of wisdom. ... This book ... is a useful addition to the field, focusing predominantly on practical management issues." (Willem JS de Villiers, Doody's Review Service, March, 2008) "Mark H. DeLegge edited Nutrition and Gastrointestinal Disease as part of the Clinical Gastroenterology series published by Humana Press. ... Of the 13 chapters, 6 are dedicated to the major gastroenteropathies. The remaining chapters cover general topics related to nutrition assessment, obesity, and enteral or parenteral nutrition. ... This book ... would be of help to those interested in mastering nutrition topics in gastroenterology. Physicians in every specialty caring for patients at nutritional risk should be knowledgeable in nutrition assessment and prescription." (Douglas Kalman and Diane R. Krieger, JAMA, Vol. 299 (18), May, 2008)show more

Back cover copy

Nutritional support of people with gastrointestinal impairment is critical to treatment and ultimately successful management. As such, gastroenterologists should be experts in nutrition and knowledgeable about the affects of nutrition on disease management. Nutritional and Gastrointestinal Disease fulfills that need, serving as a hands-on, practical reference in nutrition support for the clinical gastroenterologist and other clinicians with similar interests. The volume offers expert nutritional knowledge and management ideas as well as methodology for combating problems such as short bowel syndrome, inflammatory bowel disease, celiac disease and obesity. Renowned authorities also investigate nutrition's influence on such issues as liver failure and acute pancreatitis. While gastroenterology training programs around the world remain deficient in their nutrition curriculum, Nutritional and Gastrointestinal Disease provides a comprehensive and groundbreaking support for clinical gastroenterologists.show more
