Pediatric Nutrition in Chronic Diseases and Developmental Disorders: Prevention, Assessment, and Treatment
Oxford University Press, Jan 1, 1993 - Child Development Disorders. - 541 pages
This valuable reference work bridges the gap between nutrition research and its practical application to children with developmental and chronic disorders. After reviewing prenatal and postnatal growth, and the evaluation of nutritional status, the authors provide succinct accounts of a wide range of pediatric disorders that present special nutritional problems. Each chapter is organized to cover biochemical and clinical abnormalities, techniques in nutrition evaluation, nutritional management, and follow-up procedures. Among the diverse conditions covered in this volume are neurogenetic disorders, behavioral disorders, drug toxicity, obesity, cancer, diabetes, and inborn errors of metabolism. A companion study guide is available from the author, "Nutrition for Special Health Care Needs, Children-Adults." This self-study guide contains multiple choice questions and includes case studies.
