Oxford Handbook of Nutrition and Dietetics (Oxford Handbooks Series) 1st Edition

The importance of nutrition in the prevention and treatment of disease and the maintenance of good health is being increasingly recognised. Nutrition is an area that all health professionals need to be aware of and yet one in which few are specifically trained. Nutrition is also becoming a
valued topic in many curricula. It is a vast subject and textbooks are by necessity large and can stay stuck on the bookshelf. The Oxford Handbook of Nutrition and Dietetics makes this information more accessible to dietitians, doctors, nurses, nutritionists and other healthcare professionals by
providing a practical, easily accessible, concise and up to date evidence-based guide in a user-friendly portable handbook. The health professional who encounters nutritional problems will find the necessary information in this book on either how to respond to patient queries, or when to refer to a
more specialised practitioner.

The handbook covers the entire life cycle from preconception to old age and is arranged in 36 chapters which include nutrition assessment, food labelling, functional foods and food supplements, non-nutrient components of food, drug-nutrient interactions and prescription of nutritional products,
nutrition in systems-based diseases, nutrition in special groups, such as the very young and older people, and popular diets. Links between chapters are clear and easy to follow. For example a clinician looking for advice on obesity will find practical information on classification and treatment,
including an easy to use calculator for BMI (body mass index), with background information on energy in the diet and management in population groups such as children. Topical areas, such as metabolic syndrome, and rarer conditions, such as dietary management of phenylketonuria are also covered.
Lists of foods rich in certain nutrients are included as quick reference guides to be used by busy practitioners. The contents reflect the changing structure of the NHS, hence, equal emphasis is given to nutritional science, therapeutic dietetics, and nutrition and dietetics in the community
including developing nutrition prevention programmes.

This holistic approach is innovative and recognises the demand by health care professionals for nutritional and dietetic information to be able to carry out their evolving roles effectively. As the general public is increasingly aware of the food they eat and the role nutrition plays in health and
disease, it is essential that health professionals have the kind of knowledge in this book at their fingertips.

Following its predecessor, the second edition of Amino Acids: Biochemistry and Nutrition presents exhaustive coverage of amino acids in the nutrition, metabolism and health of humans and other animals. Substantially revised, expanded and updated to reflect scientific advances, this book introduces the basic principles of amino acid biochemistry and nutrition, while highlighting the current knowledge of the field and its future possibilities.

The book begins with the basic chemical concepts of amnio acids, peptides and proteins, and their digestion and absorption. Subsequent chapters cover cell-, tissue-, and species-specific synthesis and catabolism of amino acids and related bioactive metabolites, and the use of isotopes to study amino acids metabolism in cells and the body. The book details protein turnover, physiological functions of amino acids, as well as both the regulation and inborn errors of amino acid metabolism. The book concludes with a presentation on human and animal dietary requirements of amino acids and evaluates dietary protein quality.

Features:

  • Encompasses a comprehensive coverage of basic to applied concepts in amino acid metabolism in humans and other animals.
  • Highlights important roles of dietary amino acids and protein intake in growth, physical performance and health, including sarcopenia mitigation and immunity.
  • Discusses concerns over the excess intakes of amino acids or protein in the development of diseases, including cardiovascular disorders, diabetes and cancers, as well as bone integrity
  • Each chapter contains select references to provide comprehensive reviews and original experimental data on the topics discussed.
  • Each chapter is backed by original experimental data on various topics discussed and contains select references to aid the reader further in research.

Written by Distinguished Professor of Animal Nutrition, Guoyao Wu, Ph.D., this book is an authoritative reference for students and researchers in both biomedicine and agriculture.

Nutrition Guide for Physicians and Related Healthcare Professions (Nutrition and Health) 3rd ed. 2022 Edition

 Nutrition  Comments Off on Nutrition Guide for Physicians and Related Healthcare Professions (Nutrition and Health) 3rd ed. 2022 Edition
Feb 222022
 

This fully updated and expanded third edition is a reference guide on nutrition and its clinical implications for health and disease through the life-cycle. The book endeavors to address the needs of those who would most benefit from up-to-date information on recent advances in the field of nutrition. Written by experts in the field, chapters cover a diverse range of nutritional areas that present a succinct overview of recent thinking and discoveries that have the greatest capacity to aid physicians and other healthcare professionals in improving the nutritional health of their clients. The text is divided into eight parts. Part one and two address the nutrient requirements and special nutrition-related issues for people across all stages of the lifespan―from pregnancy and infancy through the adolescent years to the older adult years. Part three summarizes the role of nutrition in the prevention and management of chronic conditions frequently seen in clinical practice, including obesity, diabetes, bone disorders, coronary heart disease, hypertension, and cancer. Part four describes different dietary patterns (the Mediterranean diet, the DASH diet, the vegetarian diet, and the ketogenic diet). Part five describes nutrition challenges specific to surgery and several different acute diseases and disorders (gastrointestinal disorders, food allergy and intolerance, diseases of the liver and pancreas, kidney disease, eating disorders, bariatric surgery, sarcopenia, and drug interactions with food). Part six looks at different aspects of the diet (coffee, tea, dietary fat, dietary sugars, energy drinks, alcohol, dietary fiber, vitamins, minerals, and the gut microbiome). Part seven examines a range of factors that influence dietary health decisions (creating nutritional behavior change, methods for assessing nutritional status, Dietary Reference Intakes, an overview of the diet and food guides, food labels, and sources of nutrients). Finally, part eight looks at dietary supplements (including the problem of dishonest marketing) and false and misleading information in the area of nutrition.  The growing nutritional impact of COVID-19 is discussed throughout the book where appropriate.

Nutrition Guide for Physicians and Related Healthcare Professions Third Edition serves as a comprehensive guide that is organized by age/lifespan, nutrition therapy in relation to chronic disease and COVID, diet and its role in prevention, dietary requirements and recommendations, and influencing health decisions for the patient. It is a valuable resource of practical and easy-to-access information on nutrition for physicians, nurses, pharmacists, and others in their daily practice.
