Book Summary: Obesity has become the most common chronic disease of the present day, with significant increases in prevalence in populations across the world and all age groups. This has resulted in a dramatic increase in obesity-related metabolic and cardiovascular complications, making it an important public health issue. Type 2 diabetes associated with obesity or 'diabesity' is today the most common form of type 2 diabetes. It is also associated with a number of other cardiovascular risk factors, which constitute the metabolic syndrome. Effective management of 'diabesity' is crucial to the reduction of morbidity and premature mortality due to cardiovascular disease. This book comprises chapters written by leading international experts on various aspects of obesity-related diabetes. As a practical reference guide, it is suitable for all professionals with an interest in this field. Emerging problems such as childhood 'diabesity' and the impact of obesity on polycystic ovary syndrome will be of interest not only to paediatricians and endocrinologists, but also to general practitioners and other healthcare professionals. The contemporary approach to the clinical assessment of obesity and its management in both primary and secondary care settings is also described.

Book Summary: The number of individuals who are obese or overweight has dramatically increased over recent years and is now becoming epidemic.These individuals are more likely to suffer cardiovascular diseases and therefore physicians, specialists and trainees increasingly need to deal with these issues on the ward and in clinic. As a result, the need for appropriate knowledge of up-to-date clinical management of obesity and its associated cardiovascular problems is essential for any practising physician. Obesity and Cardiovascular Disease is a readily assimilated pocket guide to obesity and cardiovascular disease. It is intended to be used 'on-the-go' and is compact enough to be on hand whilst in consultation with patients. It provides a clear and succinct overview of contemporary clinical management of cardiovascular risk stratification, and fully covers the diagnosis and treatment of cardiovascular in obese patients and individuals with increased visceral adiposity, translating up-to-date clinical research findings into clinical practice. Particular emphasis is placed on recent updates in practical care in obesity and cardiovascular disease, such as new diagnostic techniques and novel pharmacological and surgical approaches, as well as cardiac visceral fat, ethnic differences in adiposity-related cardiovascular risk, and metabolically healthy, but obese subjects. Topics are presented in an easily accessible format with numerous illustrations, photographs, tables, diagnostic and therapeutic algorithms while highlight boxes summarise the main concepts discussed in each chapter.

Book Summary: In the historical record there is abundant evidence that obesity was a medical and health concern as long as medicine has been practiced. The idea of diet and exercise are bulwarks in the fight against obesity in history from the time of Hippocrates to the 16th century—a span of 2,000 years. However, our scientific understanding of this problem is only a little over 200 years old. An examination of the root cause of what many consider the obesity epidemic, A Guide to Obesity and the Metabolic Syndrome traces the origins and types of obesity and its treatment. Examining in detail the developing treatment for obesity, this book provides: A history of obesity, including treatment, proposed causes, and perceptions An examination of the causes and problems associated with obesity A discussion of lifestyle, diet, exercise, and treatment strategies A detailed look at the medications and surgeries available for obesity The fact that we have an epidemic of obesity today that is covering the globe suggests that the strategically simple ideas of eating less and exercising more, ideas that require commitment and personal involvement by the individual, have not been very successful. As we move forward in trying to understand this problem, we need to be alert to strategies and tactics that may not require individual motivation and commitment—history has shown that they do not work well. This book supplies guidance on developing and designing novel strategic interventions against obesity and metabolic disorders.
