Like its predecessors, the new and updated edition of Advanced Nutrition: Macronutrients, Micronutrients, and Metabolism is an essential textbook for advanced undergraduate and first-year graduate students studying human nutrition. This book draws on inter-related sciences including biochemistry, genetics, and physiology to provide a full understanding of nutrition science. This third edition describes the chemistry, absorption, use and excretion of each of the essential nutrients. There is comprehensive coverage of nutrient-nutrient interactions and both macro and micronutrients. The book places strong emphasis on how nutrient-genetic interactions function with respect to disease development. The new edition includes some of the most recent descriptions of the roles nutrients play in the expression of genetic traits for a variety of degenerative diseases. It includes a new chapter explains the function of microorganisms in the maintenance and development of chronic degenerative disease. Features: Chapters address clinical conditions such as obesity, starvation, hyperlipemia, renal disease and organ function. Includes updated information on the body’s microbiotica and the daily nutrient needs of humans across the life cycle. Material reveals the neurodegenerative response to dietary variables with respect to the regulation of food intake. Chapter summaries highlight key information and case studies challenge students to integrate what they have learned to solve clinical cases.

The British Dietetic Association and the publishers of the Manual of Dietetic Practice present an essential and authoritative reference series on the evidence-base relating to advanced aspects of nutrition and dietetics in selected clinical areas. Each book provides a comprehensive and critical review of key literature in the area. Each covers established areas of understanding, current controversies and areas of future development and investigation, and aims to address key themes, including: Mechanisms of disease and its impact on nutritional status, including metabolism, physiology, and genetics Consequences of disease and undernutrition, including morbidity, mortality and patient perspectives Clinical investigation and management Nutritional assessment, drawing on anthropometric, biochemical, clinical, and dietary approaches Nutritional and dietary management of disease and its impact on nutritional status Trustworthy, international in scope, and accessible, Advanced Nutrition and Dietetics is a vital resource for a range of practitioners, researchers and educators in nutrition and dietetics, including dietitians, nutritionists, doctors and specialist nurses. Written in conjunction with the British Dietetic Association, Advanced Nutrition and Dietetics in Nutrition Support provides a thorough and critical review of the fundamental and applied literature in nutrition support. Extensively evidence-based and internationally relevant, it discusses undernutrition, nutritional screening, assessment and interventions, as well as key clinical conditions likely to require nutrition support, and the approaches to managing this in each of these conditions. Clinically oriented, Advanced Nutrition and Dietetics in Nutrition Support is the ideal reference for all those managing undernutrition in a range of clinical areas.

Nutrition science has evolved considerably in the past decade with new concepts and discoveries. In response, advanced nutrition courses now encompass material on macronutrients and micronutrients, subjects that have traditionally been studied separately. The brand new edition of Advanced Nutrition: Macronutrients, Micronutrients, and Metabolism is a completely updated and expanded revision of two prior works, Advanced Nutrition Micronutrients and Advanced Nutrition Macronutrients, Second Edition, combined into one book for the first time. As in the original editions, this book has been written for those with a background in biochemistry and physiology who may or may not have a background in nutrition and dietetics. The first half of the text introduces integral concepts in nutrition science, such as energy, regulation of food intake, nutritional biochemistry, cell cycle, nutrigenomics, and epigenetics. The second portion of the book focuses on specific micronutrients and macronutrients with respect to their roles in metabolism. For ease of understanding, each chapter follows a specific format detailing each nutrient’s definition, absorption, use, and excretion. Chapters include discussions on protein, carbohydrates, lipids, vitamins, and minerals. Woven throughout the text are topics of clinical interest such as obesity, diabetes, lipemia, renal disease, and other conditions influenced by nutrition. New in this Edition: Regulation of food intake and feeding behavior Daily recommended nutrient intakes Metabolism Toxicology Nutrigenomics, epigenetics, and gene expression Cell cycle and life span nutrition The book presents a wealth of illustrations, diagrams, and tables that make complex concepts easy to grasp. It also provides references and a glossary of terms. The accompanying CD-ROM includes PowerPoint® slides of additional material. These features make it a resource that will spend more time on the desktop than on the bookshelf.

The explosion of knowledge about satiety and hunger has given new meaning to our understanding of the genetics of obesity. New interest in gene expression as related to nutrition and advances in the field of macronutrients has made the latest nutrition research intriguing. Advanced Nutrition: Macronutrients adopts an integrated approach to the understanding of macronutrient nutrition. It provides scientific foundations of the current findings on energy balance, protein need, gene expression, and carbohydrate and lipid use, and maintains emphasis on the biochemical and physiological basis for nutrient need.
