Contemporary Diagnosis and Management of The Metabolic Syndrome®

The constellation of disorders now recognized as the metabolic syndrome–hypertension, obesity, lipid disorders, and diabetes–has emerged as a potent threat to the cardiovascular health of millions of Americans. An estimated 22% of American adults have the metabolic syndrome, and the incidence is rising. Physicians therefore need a better understanding of this cluster of conditions. This handbook explains the history, risk factors, and prevalence of the metabolic syndrome in many populations. Other topics include clinical outcome, drug therapies, clinical diagnoses, and different lifestyle therapies. The text discusses the latest national guidelines for effective treatment. 287 pages.
