About this title


An introductory discussion of the definitions of obesity and its epidemiology is followed by a detailed section on pathophysiology and aetiology, including genetic predisposition and appetite regulation, in addition to common environmental and lifestyle factors and ethnicity. Obesity at all ages is presented, with associated comorbidities and complications clearly illustrated. The authors proceed to discuss the much neglected area of management, approaching this area by defining the need to effectively assess the causes of the condition in the patient, giving advice on differential diagnosis, diet and exercise, behavioural therapy, surgery and pharmacological treatment. The atlas concludes with a summary of hospital care of the morbidly obese, and looks at promising future therapies, including preventative measures. Provides an illustrated, comprehensive review of obesity - a health problem that is rapidly becoming widespread in both developed and developing nations.


"Readily accessible source of information on obesity, from definition, epidemiology, and pathophysiology to complications and treatment... Each chapter is concise but rich in information... The book is full of figures and tables and is easy to consult and pleasant to read, making it a ready to use resource for clinicians and allied professionals... I really enjoyed this atlas. The chapters are interesting, well written, and easy to consult for basic questions... Health professionals in the field of obesity will find it worthwhile and enjoyable, while researchers interested in expanding their general knowledge in this area may find it a valuable source of information." Silvana Pannain, University of Chicago Medical Center
