Nutrition plays a key role in prevention of cardiovascular disease, the leading cause of death worldwide. Diet influences a broad spectrum of cardiometabolic risk factors, notably a cluster including excess adiposity, dyslipidemia, impaired glucose metabolism and high blood pressure. In the face of the rapidly increasing incidence of obesity and diabetes, maintaining cardiometabolic health through adoption of a healthy lifestyle is a top public health priority. In this book, Nutrition and Cardiometabolic Health, international experts present state-of-the-art scholarly reviews of dietary and lifestyle effects on metabolic systems associated with cardiovascular health and disease. It covers a broad range of topics including biological and behavioral processes regulating food intake; lifestyle and surgical approaches to weight loss; nutritional considerations for optimal cardiometabolic health across the lifespan; the relationship of macronutrients, whole foods and dietary patterns to diabetes and cardiovascular disease; and diet as a modulator of gene expression, epigenetics and the gut microbiome and the relationship of these traits to disorders of metabolism. This book provides its readers with an authoritative view of the present state of knowledge of dietary effects on cardiometabolic health and will be of interest to nutrition and healthcare professionals alike.

Lipid management is a key part of medical practice, affecting the prevention and treatment of several diseases, including diabetes, cardiovascular disease and stroke. A practical text on the clinical management of dyslipidemias, Practical Lipid Management balances conceptual development and pathophysiology with a straightforward approach to the identification and treatment of abnormalities in lipid metabolism. The book explores the role of novel risk markers in clinical practice, summarizes the current guidelines for lipid management, and offers a critical and systematic approach to interpreting the results of clinical trials. A feature of the book is a set of sidebars which explore current controversies and unanswered questions in clinical lipidology. The treatment of specific dyslipidemias is illustrated with case studies. Treatment algorithms are also provided. Practical Lipid Management details the relationship between specific lipids, lipoproteins and cardiovascular disease, provides guidance on the etiology and diagnosis of lipid abnormalities, summarizes current understanding of atherogenesis, and reviews the evidence base for the use of therapeutic lifestyle change and specific lipid-lowering medications to reduce morbidity and mortality from cardiovascular disease. Practical Lipid Management provides a concise summary of best practice according to various international guidelines, making it a useful tool for all primary care physicians and others involved in the management of diseases such as diabetes, cardiovascular disease and stroke. It will serve as an evidence-based, rapid, and valuable resource for family physicians, internists, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, cardiologists, endocrinologists and allied health professionals involved in the care of patients with lipid disorders.
That a relation exists between lipids/lipoproteins and coronary artery disease is no longer an arguable point. However, the complexities associated with this relationship, and the number of factors that can impact and alter circumstances and clinical status, are many and diverse. Consequently, this relationship continues to receive a great deal of focus from researchers. Lipid Metabolism and Health, in presenting the latest statement from those positioned on the cutting edge in this arena, provides an overview and historical perspective of the evolution of serum lipids and lipoproteins. It traces their development from a mere curiosity to their acceptance as an established and major coronary artery disease (CAD) risk factor, and, ultimately, to their becoming the subject of clinical guidelines. Considerable attention is focused on the fundamentals, beginning with a chapter on basic lipidology, and progresses through such topics as lipid/lipoprotein metabolism, and the biology of atherosclerosis. Additional topics include methodologies for measuring lipoproteins, clinical strategies used to manage unhealthy lipid levels, and discussion of important influential factors such as obesity, diabetes and metabolic syndrome, diet/nutrition, exercise, cigarette smoking and environmental tobacco smoke, and age, as well as gender, race, and other heredity factors. Qualified and recognized experts in their specific fields of study were recruited by the editors to contribute chapters. They include top researchers in, nutrition, pharmacology, exercise science, and several areas of clinical medicine including cardiology, kinesiology, and immunology. Lipid Metabolism and Health provides a useful scientific and educational tool for researchers, clinicians, academicians, and students seeking a timely and bona fide source of information on the relationship between lipids and health.
