Special features of the Dictionary are entries on 160 different diets; nutrition therapy for more than 360 disorders, including inborn-errors of metabolism; 170 drugs and their effects on nutrition; and more than 150 nutritional products with their main uses and composition. Of particular importance are topics of public health concerns for the second millennium, and dietary recommendations for prevention of major degenerative diseases such as obesity, coronary heart disease, hypertension, diabetes mellitus, and cancer. The extensive Appendices include over 50 tables, forms, and charts that enrich the word definitions and serve as essential reference aids for the health care professional. With more than 3,200 carefully selected entries, the new fifth edition includes 700 new terms and more than 600 revised and expanded definitions. Terms have been meticulously chosen based on their frequency of use and importance in nutrition. All practitioners in the fields of nutrition and dietetics, as well as educators, students, and others interested in nutrition will find the updated, new edition of Nutrition and Diet Therapy Reference Dictionary a compact, handy, yet comprehensive reference tool covering almost all aspects of nutrition and dietetics.
