Back cover copy

The increasing prevalence of diabetes and obesity in western societies today makes these two diseases the leading epidemics of the 21st century. Closely linked with the development of serious complications, including cardiovascular disease and several malignancies, the morbidity and mortality associated with obesity and diabetes will continue to escalate as the population ages and becomes more sedentary. In Obesity and Diabetes, international experts from world-renowned medical schools comprehensively review for practicing clinicians and scientists alike the latest understanding of the epidemiology, causation, and consequences of diabetes and obesity. The authors discuss in detail their diagnosis, clinical manifestations, complications, and best practices for diagnosis and treatment. They also review the history and epidemiology of these conditions, explain their genetics and pathophysiology, and illuminate their known mechanisms and interactions. State-of-the-art survey-chapters critique current approaches (lifestyle and pharmacological) to the treatment of these conditions. Authoritative and up-to-date, Obesity and Diabetes offers a comprehensive review of the scientific and clinical aspects of obesity and diabetes, even while providing a powerful incentive to focus our public health efforts on prevention and our clinical efforts on treatment.show more
