Obesity and Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus (Oxford American Endocrinology Library)

With the advent of the worldwide obesity epidemic, a concurrent rise has occurred in the prevalence of type 2 diabetes mellitus and metabolic syndrome. Type 2 diabetes mellitus is affecting younger individuals-the disease is no longer exclusive to adulthood. Diabetic micro- and macrovascular complications are also occurring at an earlier age, leading to increasing demands and costs on the healthcare system. In addition, the morbidity, disability and premature death caused by diabetic complications create a huge burden to families, employers and society at large. Thankfully, there has been a tremendous growth in new therapeutic classes of medications to help manage type 2 diabetes mellitus. These agents target many of the pathophysiologic defects of the disease with fewer side effects than the older agents. Newer insulin formulations have more predictable kinetics so patients can achieve better glycemic control with less risk of hypoglycemia and weight gain. Insulin delivery devices have also improved to include higher quality insulin pens, finer and shorter pen needles, and more technologically advanced insulin pumps.

As part of the Oxford American Endocrinology Library series, this handbook reviews the epidemiology and pathophysiology of obesity and type 2 diabetes mellitus. The content covers micro- and macrovascular diabetic complications, the array of glucose regulating therapies, treatment algorithms targeting the pathophysiologic defects of type 2 diabetes mellitus as well as strategies for macrovascular risk reduction via therapeutic lifestyle change (diet, exercise, smoking cessation), pharmacotherapeutic treatment of dyslipidemia and hypertension, bariatric surgery and subcutaneous insulin infusion therapy, among other topics. Because of the concise yet comprehensive nature of the handbook, this volume is an excellent point-of-care reference for the clinician who regulary treats obese and diabetic patients.

I Can Lower My Risk For Type 2 Diabetes: A Guide for American Indians

A devastating change diabetes has caused among American Indians. American Indians are more than twice as likely to develop diabetes than the rest of the U.S. population, and they are more likely to develop complications of diabetes once they have the disease.

Despite these higher risks, Indian communities can work toward preventing diabetes with modest lifestyle changes. For years, it is assumed that losing weight and exercising will lower risk of developing diabetes. With the results of the Diabetes Prevention Program, they have not only confirmed that it is true, but they now know that the changes needed to reduce the risk of diabetes are not as big as thought. We do not have to completely return to the lifestyle of our ancestors to prevent diabetes. We can take small steps toward achieving big rewards. This book will be your guide about diabetes.

With so much new information coming from so many different sources, eating right can be confusing—but it doesn’t have to be. This comprehensive book from The American Dietetic Association explains everything you need to know about what you eat, allowing you to enjoy your favorite foods and maximize nutrition. The American Dietetic Association’s Complete Food & Nutrition Guide Provides Quick Access to Nutrition Information for the Whole Family, Including:

  • What you need to know about vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants
  • Low-fat fast food and restaurant tips
  • Healthful vegetarian eating

With nearly 70,000 members, The American Dietetic Association is the largest organization of food and nutrition professionals in the world. Named one of Ladies’ Home Journal’s Top Health Books of 1996 Winner of a 1997 Health Information Award “A must for everyone’s kitchen.”—The Oregonian “Jam-packed with practical eating and food safety tips.”—USA Today “Intelligent advice about sensible eating.”—Washington Times “May be the ultimate healthy-eating primer.”—Fitness MagazineNamed a top health book by Ladies Home Journal, The American Dietetic Association’s Complete Food & Nutrition Guide teaches how to combine “good taste and good health” in every meal and snack.

The ADA takes a conservative stance on vitamin and mineral supplements, focusing instead on combining proper foods to maximize absorption, and there’s little information about other supplements such as enzymes. But if you need help sorting the food fads from facts, the Complete Food & Nutrition Guide can’t be beat.
