Clinical Obesity in Adults and Children
Third Edition
edited by Peter G. Kopelman

Clinical Obesity in Adults and Children combines the latest in clinical research with a practical approach to guide the successful evaluation, management and treatment of the obese patient including the large number of complications and other conditions that can arise as a consequence of it.

Written by experts from around the globe, this text is a truly international work recognizing that the approach for the treatment and management of obesity may vary between differing ethnicities and in different countries.

Clinical Obesity in Adults and Children addresses obesity and its social and cultural aspects, biology, associated diseases, life stages (pediatric and adult), management, and environmental policy approaches in six sections.

As well as covering the latest approaches to treatment of obesity, it considers the effects of the environment, of gender and of culture on this problem.
