Written by a multidisciplinary group of psychiatrists, endocrinologists, pharmacists, and dietitians, this handbook is a practical guide to the prevention and management of diabetes in patients with mental illnesses. Chapters examine the prevalence of diabetes in patients with various mental illnesses. Close attention is given to the link between psychotropic medications—including antidepressants, mood stabilizers, and second-generation antipsychotics—and the development of obesity, diabetes, lipid abnormalities, and other metabolic disorders.
The discipline of Endocrinology encompasses diabetes and obesity, two of the most common and pressing health care concerns today. The Oxford American Handbook of Endocrinology & Diabetes concisely reviews the entire discipline, providing a wealth of daily help for students and residents managing patients with diabetes and obesity as well as reproductive and neuroendocrine disorders, pediatric endocrinology, and problems of the thyroid, pituitary, and adrenal glands. Key topics such as genetics, therapeutic agents, and results of major clinical trials are included, all in a compact and easily-navigable package.

The prevalence of obesity, metabolic syndrome and diabetes – three links of the same ‘atherothrombotic chain’ – has reached pandemic proportions worldwide. As a result, our civilization is at war against a threatening enemy: cardio-diabetes.
There has been an explosion of interest in the field of neuroendocrinology over the last twenty years with the discovery of neurohormones regulating virtually everything from growth and development to sexual and aggressive behavior.This book provides a much-needed introduction to neuroendocrinology from a zoological and evolutionary perspective. It covers the evolution, development and description of the neuroendocrine system throughout the animal kingdom.Specific topics covered include:- The Evolution of early neuroendocrine systems in primitive animals- Structural characterisation, molecular biology and biochemistry of neuroendocrine agents- A profiles section on unusual aspects of neuroendocrine physiology written by leaders in the field- A unique section on the actions of environmental chemicals effect neuroendocrine systems in various species
Americans are overweight, and they’re getting heavier. Other than wanting to perform invasive surgical procedures, most doctors offer little help. Their advice is usually “Eat less, exercise more,” which falls back on the outdated dogma of calories in/calories out. Medical research on dieting is confusing and often contradictory. Not only are physicians unsure about which weight-loss plan is best, but their patients are, too! It has become an “every one for him- or herself” situation, where we’re forced to experiment, hoping to hit on the magic weight-loss formula by chance .
Fung zeroes in on why insulin resistance has become so prevalent and offers specific outside-the-box solutions that have emerged as the key to maximizing health."—Jimmy Moore, author, Keto Clarity and Cholesterol ClarityEverything you believe about how to lose weight is wrong. Weight gain and obesity are driven by hormones—in everyone—and only by understanding the effects of insulin and insulin resistance can we achieve lasting weight loss.In this highly readable and provocative book, Dr. Jason Fung sets out an original, robust theory of obesity that provides startling insights into proper nutrition.

It addresses every condition and situation encountered in day-to-day clinical practice – from growth abnormalities and thyroid disease to diabetes, obesity and hypertension.
The papers address ruminant comparative physiology, the rumen ecosystem and metagenomics, nutrient digestion and absorption, methanogenesis, tissue metabolism and gene expression, pregnancy, lactation and growth, adaptation to heat-stress, nitrogen use, nutrition and reproduction, nutrition and welfare and nutrition for sustainable ruminant production.
More than 18 million people in the United States have diabetes mellitus, and about 90% of these have the type 2 form of the disease. This book attempts to dissect the complexity of the molecular mechanisms of insulin action with a special emphasis on those features of the system that are subject to alteration in type 2 diabetes and other insulin resistant states. It explores insulin action at the most basic levels, through complex systems.
