About this book
Obesity and diabetes mellitus continue to affect an ever increasing number of children, adolescents, and young adults. The objective of this book is to provide healthcare trainees and professionals with practical, comprehensive, and contemporary approaches to the pediatric patient at risk for obesity, diabetes mellitus, and related conditions.
This book provides the reader clinical paradigms for diagnosis and management of pediatric obesity and diabetes. In addition, the book succinctly describes state-of-the-art basic and clinical sciences underlying hunger and satiety. The intended market is pediatricians, dieticians, endocrinologists and diabetologists. This book can also be utilized to teach dietary, nursing, graduate, medical, dental, and allied health trainees about these ever-increasing problems in pediatric populations.
