An invaluable resource for any healthcare professional wishing to understand more about the causes, effects and treatments of obesity.

Obesity is a growing problem among both adults and children, especially in the UK and USA. It causes more than 9000 premature deaths a year in England alone and is an important risk factor for a number of chronic conditions. As such, community pharmacists now have an increasingly important role in public health and a responsibility to patients to understand the causes and dangers of obesity, as well as the options for treatment.

The Obesity Epidemic and its Management is a timely and insightful book in two parts. Part 1 discusses the background and epidemiology of the problem. Part 2 focuses on the prevention of obesity and various psychological, pharmacological and surgical interventions.

In addition to addressing facts and figures and defining the problem and costs, topics covered also include:
  • metabolic consequences
  • obesity prevention
  • government guidelines
  • nutrition, fad diets and exercise
  • services development in pharmacy

This book is aimed at the primary healthcare worker, the pharmacist, the GP and the practice or community nurse and is designed to provide a basic understanding of the problem and why it has become such a major public health crisis over the last 30 years. 
Part 1:
  • Problem Statement
  • Facts and Figures
  • Measuring Obesity
  • The Cost of Obesity
  • The Politics
  • Metabolism
  • Hunger and Satiety
Part 2:
  • Towards Management
  • Obesity Management Services
  • Behavioural Interventions
  • Exercise Interventions
  • Nutritional Interventions
  • Pharmacological Interventions
  • Surgical Interventions
  • Fad Diets
  • OTC Agents
