9781841849812: Handbook of Obesity – Volume 2: Clinical Applications, Fourth Edition (Bray, Handbook of Obesity) (Volume 1)

Several major developments have occurred since the last edition of Handbook of Obesity: Clinical Applications, including new clinical trials, discoveries related to drug use, and greater understanding of the benefits of weight loss in obese patients. Now in its fourth edition, this volume continues to offer unparalleled depth and breadth of coverage concerning this global and chronic disease that affects and exacerbates associated conditions including diabetes and heart disease. The book is divided into five sections exploring essential factors involved in obesity prevention and treatment:

  • Prevention of Obesity: Strategies such as reengineering the environment to encourage physical activity and prevent excessive weight gain in children and adults

  • Evaluation of the Overweight or Obese Patient: Methods for assessing the overweight individual and the role of the primary care physician in patient management

  • Medical Treatment of Obesity and Weight Management Issues in the Treatment of Obesity: Lifestyle for weight loss and weight maintenance, diet and exercise, medications, herbal agents, and issues related to childhood obesity

  • Surgery: Screening for bariatric surgery, laparoscopic banding, liposuction, and other surgical techniques and strategies for operative and postoperative care

  • Epilogue: The economic assessment and cost-effectiveness of treatments for obesity, how obesity is viewed internationally, and governmental responses to challenges arising from the growing prevalence of obesity

Presenting the insight of international experts and edited by two eminent leaders in obesity research, the book is essential for health care providers in search of a comprehensive and up-to-date guide to treating obese patients.

Review:

"This two-volume set of books is the most comprehensive encyclopaedia of obesity that I have read ... Name any aspect of obesity and this book has it covered! Reading it from beginning to end is a pleasurable education, whilst digital access via VitalBook (eBook) on your VitalSource Bookshelf (included in the price) will enable immediate offline access in the clinic or seminar...The book is the product of a huge international college of contributors whose presentations are ably and intuitively orchestrated by the editors. As a comprehensive treatise on all aspects of obesity I cannot recommend it enough."
―Jim Young, Editor-in-Chief, Glycosmedia
