La fine del diabete

Joel Fuhrman

editore: Macro Edizioni

pagine: 336

"Perché limitarsi a gestire il diabete quando lo si può eliminare per sempre? ""Per prevenire e far regredire il diabete non servono i farmaci, ma un cambiamento radicale del nostro modo di mangiare"".Dottor Joel Fuhrman A differenza di quanto vi è stato detto finora, il diabete non è una malattia cronica. Non è una condanna destinata ad abbreviare l'aspettativa di vita o a causare ipertensione, cardiopatie, insufficienza renale, cecità o altre malattie potenzialmente mortali. In realtà, quasi tutti i diabetici possono sospendere l'assunzione dei farmaci e tornare sani al cento per cento solo adottando poche regole. In queste pagine il dottor Fuhrman, specialista qualificato in materia di nutrizione, ci rivela come possiamo prevenire e far regredire il diabete e le relative complicanze recuperando al tempo stesso il peso forma. La fine del diabete è un'idea radicale espressa in un programma estremamente semplice: mangiare meglio per sconfiggere il diabete. Con oltre 50 ricette, gli esempi di menu (colazione, pranzo e cena), le risposte alle domande più frequenti, i consigli per medici e pazienti questo libro ci dimostra, con un linguaggio coinvolgente, semplice e diretto, che diabete, cardiopatie e ipertensione non sono conseguenze inevitabili del processo di invecchiamento: sono reversibili e prevedibili con un'alimentazione sana.

Togli peso alla tua vita. Sconfiggere l'obesità con l'approccio multidsciplinare

Andrea Formiga, Alessandra Freda
e altri

editore: Mind Edizioni

pagine: 160

Questo volume nasce dall'esperienza del team C.I.B.O. (Centro Interdisciplinare Bariatria e Obesità) di Monza, che fa del metodo integrato il proprio punto di forza nella cura dell'obesità. Il gruppo è infatti composto da dietista, endocrinologo, psicologo e chirurgo che lavorano in stretto coordinamento tra loro. Il libro, oltre all'analisi medico-scientifica della specifica patologia, fornisce indicazioni nutrizionali e dietologiche su una corretta alimentazione; piccoli trucchi e soluzioni mentali per superare i momenti di crisi compulsiva; descrizione dettagliata, ma semplice e senza tecnicismi, delle varie tipologie di interventi endoscopici e chirurgici disponibili attualmente, evidenziandone punti di forza e debolezza; guida alla sintomatologia post-operatoria, con conseguente alterazione dei gusti e delle abitudini alimentari. Il testo raccoglie anche alcune testimonianze emblematiche di pazienti che hanno condiviso il percorso diagnostico/terapeutico relativo alla risoluzione del problema obesità e delle malattie a esso correlate con il C.I.B.O. Il paziente diventa narratore protagonista: la ricerca del miglioramento personale, il coraggio del cambiamento, una nuova fisionomia, la riconquista della motilità perduta hanno effettivamente migliorato la sua salute, il suo stato d'animo e la coscienza di sé; inoltre, gli hanno consentito un reinserimento completo nella società e il riscatto sociale nelle dinamiche lavorative e personali.

Growth Hormone Deficiency

Physiology and Clinical Management

Laurie E. Cohen

editore: Springer International Publishing AG

pagine: 241

Providing the most current information on the function of human growth hormone (GH) and the consequences of its deficiency, this practical yet comprehensive text is divided into three sections. Part one describes the mechanisms of GH secretion and action, including the physiology of GH and its regulation by sex steroids and thyroid hormones, the effects of both under nutrition and obesity on GH secretion, and the metabolic effects of human recombinant GH therapy. The second section covers diagnostic strategies and tests for GH deficiency in both children and adults, including MRI of the pituitary. The final section describes the different etiologies of GH deficiency, from molecular mechanisms and gene abnormalities to cranial radiation and traumatic brain injury, along with syndromes related to this deficiency. Presenting underlying mechanisms and pathologies, as well as diagnostic methods, Growth Hormone Deficiency will provide the most up-to-date essential information and evidence on this condition for the clinical endocrinologist.
