Obesity and Diabetes
edited by Anthony Barnett

Obesity and Diabetes comprises chapters written by leading international experts on various aspects of obesity-related diabetes. The early chapters cover topics ranging from the changing epidemiology of type 2 diabetes to an analysis of the principal causes of the metabolic syndrome

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 described. The book features many suggestions of practical value.
