Handbook of obesity : etiology and pathophysiology by George A Bray( )

44 editions published between 2003 and 2014 in English and held by 853 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Now in its third edition, The Handbook of Obesity: Epidemiology, Etiology, and Physiopathology offers comprehensive coverage of the biological, behavioural, and environmental determinants of obesity and how excess weight affects and exacerbates a range of comorbid conditions including diabetes, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, pulmonary function, arthritis, and cancer. The content of this new edition reflects our evolving understanding of the causes and consequences of obesity. The text now constitutes five sections: History and Prevalence, Biological Determinants, Behavioural Determinants, Environmental, Social, and Cultural determinants, Consequences of Obesity. We now have a much better understanding of internal, biological factors associated with the development of obesity and the new edition dedicates 18 chapters to discussing the role of internal mechanisms on weight gain including chapters discussing genotype, early fetal life and events, the regulation of energy balance, the role of adipose tissue, and energy costs, among others. The role of our individual behaviours and degrees to which these, as well as larger cultural and environmental factors, influence our eating and weight issues is now also better understood thanks to increased research. These sections look at the likes of our work culture, drinking, sleep duration, and changing eating behaviours, as well as government-level food policies, changing advertising practices, economic determinants, and cultural traits relating to weight gain. Finally, we are now increasingly aware of the damage excess weight has on our bodies and the role it plays in the development of disease. The many diseases that have obesity as important risk factors are discussed in 15 chapters and include heart disease, diabetes, metabolic syndrome, cancer, liver disease, and pulmonary function"--Provided by publisher
The metabolic syndrome and obesity by George A Bray( )

19 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 597 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Presents an up-to-date survey of the current scientific understanding of obesity and the metabolic syndrome, as well as an overview of the most significant changes to the field over the past 30 years. By first presenting a historical context for overweight, the book drives home the point that obesity is by no means simply a contemporary problem, and its continued existence means that we neither understand it, nor have developed effective therapies. The book is a comprehensive reference for the treatment of obesity in two parts. Part I, The Problem, examines the entire scope of the obesity epidemic, including epidemiology and history, costs of treatment, pathology, clinical types, age-related issues, and general health risks. Part II, The Solutions, describes several treatment options including diet, behavior modification, exercise, pharmacological treatment, and surgery. This volume is a thorough reference for obesity and the metabolic syndrome and offers an in-depth assessment of the problem and its myriad potential treatment options
Overweight and the metabolic syndrome : from bench to bedside by George A Bray( )

20 editions published between 2006 and 2010 in English and held by 561 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume examines the problem of the overweight individual and the metabolic syndrome from the laboratory bench to the bedside. Clearly, translating the findings we make in the laboratory to the betterment of humankind is an important mission. Areas where basic science is making important contributions to the problems associated with metabolic syndrome are illustrated in the chapters on Neuroendocrine Control of Food Intake, Current Views of the Fat Cell as an Endocrine Cell: Lipotoxicity, and Ectopic Fat and Metabolic Syndrome. For each of these, the fast-moving basic science area is opening new vistas for translation to the bedside and clinic. The larger segment of the book deals with the clinical context for the metabolic syndrome, central adiposity and overweight. The methods for measurement are well described and the application of these methods to evaluating patients and determining the prevalence in society is indicated. Genetic components of overweight and the metabolic syndrome are reviewed. The key role of visceral fat is emphasized by giving it a chapter of its own written by one of the foremost investigators of this problem. The importance of overweight and the metabolic syndrome in children is recognized in a separate chapter. There are a number of chapters focusing on treatment including behavioral therapy, exercise, diet, medications and surgery. In summary, this book is the alpha and omega of the overweight and metabolic syndrome problem. Series editor comments: Drs. Bray and Ryan have assembled a superb panel of authors who bring their expertise to this very timely book for medical practice. The epidemic of obesity is addressed in authoritative and cutting edge chapters ranging from the fundamental genetics and physiology of appetite control through the latest pharmacologic applications and surgical interventions. This is a "must have" volume for those treating patients with appetite disorders, obesity and diabetes, as well as those studying the intrinsic cellular and whole body pathogenesis of this modern population disorder.

A guide to obesity and the metabolic syndrome : origins and treatment by George A Bray( Book )

7 editions published between 2011 and 2017 in English and held by 200 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the historical record there is abundant evidence that obesity was a medical and health concern as long as medicine has been practiced. The idea of diet and exercise are bulwarks in the fight against obesity in history from the time of Hippocrates to the 16th century-a span of 2,000 years. However, our scientific understanding of this problem is only a little over 200 years old. An examination of the root cause of what many consider the obesity epidemic, A Guide to Obesity and the Metabolic Syndrome traces the origins and types of obesity and its treatment. Examining in detail the developing
