Nutrition and Health Reference from C.H.I.P.S.

Nutrition and Diet Therapy Reference Dictionary
Fifth edition
by Rosalinda T. Lagua

This Fifth Edition fills a need that remains unmet by today's medical dictionaries.

The most comprehensive dictionary covering nutrition and diet therapy available today, this wide-ranging, authoritative volume covers all aspects of nutrition, including:

  • Assessment
  • Drug nutrient interactions
  • Laboratory interpretations
  • Enteral and parenteral nutrition support
  • Community and public health nutrition programs
  • Nutrition throughout the life cycle

Much more than just a dictionary, the entries don't simply define, they also include the main reasons for suggested nutrition therapy and dietary guidelines. It covers more than 360 disorders, including inborn error of metabolism; 170 drugs and their effects on nutrition; and more than 150 nutritional products with their primary uses and composition.

Of particular importance are public health issues for the new millenium, and dietary recommendations for prevention of major degenerative diseases such as obesity, coronary heart disease, hypertension, diabetes mellitus and cancer.

With more than 3,200 carefully selected entries, all practitioners in the fields of nutrition and dietetics, as well as educators, students, and others interested in nutrition, will find the updated Nutrition and Diet Therapy Reference Dictionary a compact and comprehensive reference tool.
