Personalized Nutrition as Medical Therapy for High-Risk Diseases
Personalized nutrition involves the formulation of individualized nutritional recommendations to promote and maintain health based on an individual's genetic makeup and other unique intrinsic and extrinsic factors. Implementing personalized nutrition plans for individuals with certain diseases or who are in danger of developing health conditions could help control the onset and severity of symptoms. Personalized Nutrition as Medical Therapy for High-Risk Diseases offers a practical guide for physicians seeking to provide tailored dietary recommendations to their patients with disease treatment, modulation and prevention in mind.
The book focuses on the biological mechanisms of specific diseases and provides evidence for how personalized nutrition positively impacts them. It explores conditions including cardiovascular diseases, hypertension, hypercholesteromia, diabetes, obesity, Crohn's disease, as well as multiple pediatric, renal and psychological disorders.
· Includes case studies that document how people respond differently towards food depending on their genetic structure and other factors.
· Discusses genome wide association studies (GWIMS) to understand the interplay between genetic susceptibility and dietary interactions.
· Provides users information to effectively implement personalized nutrition into practice.
· Identifies possible challenges to the implementation of personalized nutritional interventions in a clinical setting.
This book is for medical practitioners and will also appeal to researchers and students.
