As the older adult population continues to grow, so will the prevalence and incidence of age-related disorders. In Handbook of Clinical Nutrition and Aging, Second Edition, the editors and contributors (a panel of recognized academic nutritionists, geriatricians, clinicians and scientists) have thoroughly updated and revised their widely acclaimed first edition with fresh perspectives and the latest scientific and clinical developments in age-associated disease. New chapters tackle ecological perspectives on adult eating behavior, and behavioral theories applied to nutritional therapies in aging, while topics such as Sarcopenia and Cachexia are discussed in greater detail. The authors outline the physiological basis for each disorder, provide the latest information about the interaction of nutrition with these conditions, and review the potential routes and mechanisms for clinical intervention.

Timely and authoritative, Handbook of Clinical Nutrition and Aging, Second Edition is a unique, comprehensive resource and will prove a valuable guide to all nutritionists, physicians, nurses, dietitians, and speech-language and occupational therapists who provide care for the rapidly expanding aging population.

Review:

From the reviews of the second edition:

"The editors, both highly respected in geriatric nutrition, have brought together legends in this field to produce an excellent handbook. This text excels in its thorough approach to important topics. Cutting-edge geriatric and nutrition sciences are infused with practical management concepts, making this text a valuable resource. Management is addressed thoroughly, going beyond traditional prescribed diets or a simplistic "supplements" approach. Misconceptions that are pervasive in nutritional and geriatric care are refreshingly corrected. The test is exceptionally well organized and rigorously referenced, and it includes a comprehensive index to facilitate use as a reference handbook." - Annals of Internal Medicine

"This book does a very credible job at reviewing what is known about nutrition in older persons. The handbook is a comprehensive and practical resource, offering practicing clinicians an up-to-date compendium of advice on appropriate nutritional therapies for older adults with chronic diseases and medical conditions. The material presented here is especially complete. Each chapter is well referenced and the book is thoroughly indexed. The Handbook of Clinical Nutrition and Aging should be in all health sciences libraries supporting geriatrics education and practice." -E-STREAMS
