About this book

Introduction

Despite widespread interest in nutrition and the public‚s appetite for fresh information from health professionals, health care providers often lack accurate, clinically relevant, and current information on topics of special concern to their patients. In Clinical Nutrition of the Essential Trace Elements and Minerals: The Guide for Health Professionals, John Bogden, PhD, Leslie Klevay, MD, and a host of recognized experts address this major gap in the literature with a comprehensive, up-to-date survey of the biological roles and clinical importance of mineral and trace element nutrients. These authoritative researchers and clinicians review the clinical relevance of trace elements and minerals such as chromium, copper, fluoride, iron, iodine, molybdenum, manganese, selenium, zinc, calcium, magnesium, and phosphorus to a wide variety of medical conditions. Among the diseases treated are genetic, endocrine, skeletal, cardiovascular, kidney, gastrointestinal, infectious, surgical, and ophthalmologic disorders. The authors also discuss trace element and mineral nutrition in healthy people, with chapters on pregnancy, lactation, adolescents, and older people. Chapters on preagricultural and modern consumption patterns, epidemiology, and laboratory diagnostic tests are also included.
Timely and comprehensive, Clinical Nutrition of the Essential Trace Elements and Minerals: The Guide for Health Professionals offers today's physicians, nutritionists, and dietitians an authoritative resource replete with sound dietary and medical advice suitable for daily use with their clients and patients.

Reviews

"This book sets a high standard for presentation of the scientific bases for importance of minerals in human biology and health and will thereby contribute in a major way to the appropriate application of science for improved public health and preventive nutrition, no less important will be its contribution to establishing the foundation for moving the science in this important field even further."-Foreword by Irwin Rosenberg, MD

"In the second part trace mineral nutrition in healthy people is covered, followed by coverage of the trace element nutrition in diseases. This is a unique approach to outline the role of trace element in health and disease conditions. In the body, trace elements do not work alone, but in concert with other nutrients. Contributors discuss trace element nutrition within the content of a specific condition or group of diseases rather than taking the classical approach, which is a discussion of trace element nutrition along the line of individual trace element. The editors provide a comprehensive overview of trace element nutrition in health and disease, and this renders this book a good reference for healthcare professionals."-Doody's Health Science Book Review Journal

"This is an easily readable text, which presents its information in a fashion that is readily accessible to both clinicians and students....This format particularly suits the nutrition practitioner in patient care....Each chapter provides a review of relevant recent research and an extensive reference list, which could further assist the researcher or student. ...The dangers in recommending dietary supplementation with trace elements and minerals is emphasized by a description of the complex emphasized by a description of the complex interactions between the dietary elements....this text deserves a place in the clinical nutritionist's library. The text provides an excellent mixture of current research and practical clinical nutrition, which can be used as a reference for patient care and for general trace element research, in an easily readable format."-Clinical Chemistry
