One-third of adults in the US and an alarming proportion of children have the metabolic syndrome and as such it represents a global public health problem. There has been an abundance of research dedicated to understanding the pathophysiology, epidemiology and therapeutic strategies of metabolic syndrome, but no other topic has provoked so much discussion on the usage of its term as a syndrome, its precise cause, utility and even its very existence. Metabolic Syndrome in Clinical Practice addresses current issues and interactions surrounding metabolic syndrome, obesity, diabetes and cardiovascular disease. It provides a practical approach to the understanding of insulin resistance and obesity/hypertriglyceridemic waist as underlying factors causing metabolic syndrome and is written as a series of practical and thoroughly referenced questions and answers. The questions have been carefully selected to address those issues relevant to clinical practice. Crucial to the understanding of this syndrome, the components of metabolic syndrome are dealt with in depth.This book is a valuable reference resource on the topic for residents in internal medicine, family medicine/primary care physicians, medical students, nurse practitioners and related health professionals who need to update and improve their knowledge in the field of newly emerging science of the metabolic syndrome.Table of contents Introduction.- Components of Metabolic Syndrome.- Pathogenesis of Metabolic Syndrome.- Clinical Diagnosis of Metabolic Syndrome.- Consequences of Metabolic Syndrome.- Clinical Management of Metabolic Syndrome.- Metabolic Syndrome in Children
