Synopsis:
Part of the popular LPN Threads Series, Williams' Basic Nutrition & Diet Therapy is the market leader for a reason: you get coverage of hot topics, emerging trends, and cutting edge research, plus all the essentials for providing the best nutrition care. Written in a clear, conversational style, the book begins with the fundamental concepts of nutrition and then applies those concepts to diverse demographic groups in different stages of life. You also learn how selected disease processes work, and how to help communities and individuals achieve health and healthy living. A free CD contains Nutritrac, a computer program that helps you analyze case studies and create customized client profiles.
  • An engaging design includes colorful openers, illustrations, boxes, tables, and text layout.
  • Clinical Applications and For Further Focus boxes highlight hot topics and analyze concepts and trends in depth.
  • Case studies in clinical care chapters focus attention on related patient care problems.
  • Key Concepts and Key Terms condense critical information into easy-to-find boxes.
  • Diet therapy guidelines include recommendations, restrictions, and sample diets for a number of major clinical conditions.
  • Cultural Considerations boxes discuss how a patient's culture can affect nutritional concepts in practice.
  • Challenge questions use true/false, multiple-choice, and matching formats to test your understanding of chapter content.
  • Critical thinking questions challenge you to analyze, apply, and combine concepts.
  • Chapter summaries put content into perspective in terms of the "big picture” in nutrition.
  • Internet-based research and learning is emphasized and expanded throughout the text, citing key websites.

  • A companion website contains case studies applying chapter content to real-life examples, 350 study questions for instant self-assessment, the most recent growth charts from the CDC, the ADA's Nutrition Care Process, and links to online information sources.
  • Mosby's NUTRITRAC Nutrition Analysis and Weight Management CD offers the perfect clinical practice tool, letting you create customized personal profiles and analyze food intake and energy output - by using a database of more than 3,000 foods and more than 150 sporting, recreational, and occupational activities.
  • Unique! Content threads share features with other LPN/LVN titles from Elsevier for a consistent learning experience.
  • More than 50 new illustrations include more age and culturally diverse images as well as more illustrations of disease states.

  • Weight Management chapter covers food misinformation and fads, addressing the dangers and the groups vulnerable to such misinformation.
  • Gastrointestinal and Accessory Organ Problems chapter includes recent research on the pathogenesis of celiac disease along with the principles and selected foods of the gluten-free diet for treatment.
  • Coronary Heart Disease and Hypertension chapter is updated to follow the now-standard Therapeutic Lifestyle Change (TLC) diet to treat hypertension.
