Carefully laid out with relevant and clearly explained examples, and containing much new material, this new edition covers in an integrated way: concepts and mechanisms, digestion and intestinal absorption, organs and tissues, endocrine organs and hormones, the integration of carbohydrate, fat and protein metabolism, the nervous system and metabolism, lipoprotein metabolism, diabetes mellitus, energy balance and body weight regulation and how the body copes with some extreme situations.
The author, Keith Frayn, who has many yearsâ€™ experience teaching and researching in this subject, has written a book of great clarity, which is an extremely valuable tool for scientists, practitioners and students working and studying across a broad range of allied health sciences including nutrition, dietetics, sports science and nursing. Students of medicine, physiology, biochemistry and biological sciences will also find much of great use and interest in this book. All libraries in research establishments, universities and medical schools where these subjects are studied and taught should have multiple copies of this excellent book on their shelves.
