"Il diabete mellito" del professor Riccardo Giorgino si presenta come un'opera articolata e approfondita sul tema del diabete mellito di tipo 1 e 2. Come evidenzia l'autore nella prefazione al libro: "La diffusione del diabete mellito nel mondo assume ormai un carattere epidemico. Secondo le proiezioni dellOrganizzazione Mondiale della Sanità, è previsto un raddoppio della popolazione diabetica entro il 2025: si passerà, infatti, dagli attuali 150 milioni ai 300 milioni di soggetti. Il diabete mellito è considerato una malattia sociale, sia per lalta prevalenza, sia per le complicanze croniche cui dà origine e che riducono la qualità di vita e laspettativa di vita dei pazienti che ne sono affetti, sia per i costi diretti e indiretti." Obiettivo del libro è definire la malattia diabetica così come si sta sviluppando prendendo in considerazione gli aspetti fisiopatologici, clinici, terapeutici e pratici. "Il diabete mellito" è suddiviso in sette sezioni ognuna dedicata ad un specifico aspetto del diabete mellito partendo dalla fisiologia della funzione pancreatica endocrina per giungere al trattamento di particolari componenti del diabete mellito. Ogni capitolo è inoltre corredato da riferimenti bibliografici essenziali e recenti. Questo libro è cercato anche come: Il diabete mellito Giorgini, Il diabete mellito SEU

Obesità e chirurgia. Dal genotipo alla sleeve gastrectomy laparoscopica

Daniele Capizzi, Francesco Domenico Capizzi

editore: Edizioni Medico-Scientifiche

pagine: 128

L'evoluzione umana è avvenuta grazie alla combinazione fra accumulazione ed utilizzazione di energia prodotta dagli alimenti ottenuti in un ambiente ostile. Nel tempo la situazione si è capovolta: gli alimenti diventano di largo consumo, tende a sparire l'impegno fisico per intensità e durata e, in compenso, appaiono stress e insoddisfazioni esistenziali nella quasi immobilità dei corpi. Nei Paesi ricchi si manifesta l'assillo delle diete, delle palestre, di limitare i danni alla salute dovuti ad una iperalimentazione e alla scarsa mobilità fisica, nei Paesi poveri il problema è opposto. L'obesità si avvia ad assumere i caratteri dell'epidemia: dagli anni '80 gli obesi aumentano fino a raggiungere un tasso doppio, l'obesità diviene ben visibile. Il fenomeno raggiunge i Paesi in via di sviluppo man mano che l'alimentazione, gli stili di vita e le condizioni di lavoro si uniformano al mondo occidentale. In definitiva, l'origine dell'obesità è multifattoriale: dominanti ambientali e culturali ed una incerta componente genetica. Che cosa si può fare per prevenire, combattere e curare l'obesità?

Il problema obesità. Manuale per tutti i professionisti della salute

Paola Gremigni, Laura Letizia

editore: Maggioli Editore

pagine: 211

Sempre più diffusa, presente sia nei Paesi occidentali sia in quelli in via di sviluppo, l'obesità colpisce anche fasce d'età molto giovanili e rappresenta un notevole problema per lo stato di salute della popolazione. Poiché sia la patogenesi sia la condizione dell'obesità sono multifattoriali e coinvolgono fattori biologici, psicologici, ambientali e socio-culturali, la complessità della "malattia" deve riflettersi in un approccio altrettanto complesso, di tipo multidisciplinare e integrato, in fase sia di valutazione, sia di trattamento. La psicologia, negli ultimi decenni, si è interessata con crescente impegno ai disordini legati all'alimentazione. Quanto siano complesse le implicazioni psicologiche associate all'obesità è evidente. Il volume ha l'obiettivo di offrire uno strumento utile a quanti operano nell'ambito del trattamento dell'obesità, siano essi medici, dietologi, fisiatri, educatori sanitari e psicologi o psichiatri. Il volume fornisce strumenti di conoscenza operativi per le attività sul campo. L'analisi dei comportamenti alimentari, delle emozioni e del rapporto con il proprio corpo e con gli altri aiuta gli operatori a capire meglio le persone obese. La rassegna dei questionari di valutazione delle dimensioni psicologiche offre una panoramica sugli strumenti operativi, analogamente alla descrizione dei vari approcci al trattamento dell'obesità.

Type 1 Diabetes in Adults

Oxford American Pocket Notes

Barbara Simon, Jeremy Flood
e altri

editore: Oxford University Press Inc

pagine: 80

At a time of dramatic increases in the prevalence of obesity, it is appropriate that Type 2 diabetes has received a great deal of attention by the endocrinology community. Clearly, the management of insulin resistance and cardiovascular risk is a critical issue. However, it is important to also acknowledge and address Type 1 diabetes, whose prevalence is also increasing, and whose management remains complex. Currently it is estimated that 10-15% of those with diabetes carry the diagnosis of Type 1 diabetes, and frequently the diagnosis is not straightforward, as many clinicians recognize that more adults previously thought to have Type 2 diabetes actually have late-onset Type 1 diabetes (also termed latent autoimmune diabetes of the adult or LADA). Over the last decade tools for the management of Type 1 diabetes have also evolved; therefore, clinicians now have the opportunity to more closely replicate normal physiologic insulin secretion with either basal-bolus insulin therapy or continuous subcutaneous insulin infusions. While these advancements allow clinicians to manage patients with Type 1 diabetes better, they also add complexity to patient treatment. An updated text to address the concepts behind the recognition of new onset Type 1 diabetes in adults, the ongoing care of adults with established Type 1 diabetes, and future potential therapies and devices is warranted to review these issues for both endocrinologists and primary care providers with an interest in diabetes. As part of the Oxford American Endocrinology Library, this volume stands as a concise guide in the treatment of Type 1 Diabetes in adults. The authors briefly examine the classification and pathophysiology of Type 1 diabetes (including predication and prevention and LADA) and address management (blood glucose monitoring, insulin therapy, and Continuous Subcutaneous Insulin Infusion) and complications (Hyperglycemia, Retinocpathy, Nephropathy, Neuropathy, etc) of the disease. Finally and perhaps most significantly, the authors consider "special situations" associated with Type 1 Diabetes patients, including inpatient treatment, pancreas and inslet transplantation, and how to treat pregnant and depressed patients and patients with eating disorders.
