The updated bestselling guide to human metabolism and metabolic regulation The revised and comprehensively updated new edition of Human Metabolism (formerly Metabolic Regulation – A Human Perspective) offers a current and integrated review of metabolism and metabolic regulation. The authors explain difficult concepts in clear and concise terms in order to provide an accessible and essential guide to the topic. This comprehensive text covers a wide range of topics such as energy balance, body weight regulation, exercise, and how the body copes with extreme situations, and illustrates how metabolic regulation allows the human body to adapt to many different conditions. This fourth edition has been revised with a new full colour text design and helpful illustrations that illuminate the regulatory mechanisms by which all cells control the metabolic processes necessary for life. The text includes chapter summaries and additional explanatory text that help to clarify the information presented. In addition, the newly revised edition includes more content on metabolic pathways and metabolic diseases. This important resource: Is a valuable tool for scientists, practitioners and students across a broad range of health sciences including medicine, biochemistry, nutrition, dietetics, sports science and nursing Includes a full colour text filled with illustrations and additional diagrams to aid understanding Offers a companion website with additional learning and teaching resources.

Metabolic Regulation looks in detail at how molecules, cells and tissues operate collectively in human health and disease, using an approach that has become known as ‘integrative physiology’. Since the publication of the first edition of this extremely well received book, the understanding of how metabolism is regulated has developed substantially in several ways, for example with the discovery of the hormone leptin, and also in the continuing advances in the understanding of gene expression. Full details of these and other new advances are included in this fully updated edition. Carefully laid out with relevant and clearly explained examples, and containing much new material, this new edition covers in an integrated way: concepts and mechanisms, digestion and intestinal absorption, organs and tissues, endocrine organs and hormones, the integration of carbohydrate, fat and protein metabolism, the nervous system and metabolism, lipoprotein metabolism, diabetes mellitus, energy balance and body weight regulation and how the body copes with some extreme situations. The author, Keith Frayn, who has many years’ experience teaching and researching in this subject, has written a book of great clarity, which is an extremely valuable tool for scientists, practitioners and students working and studying across a broad range of allied health sciences including nutrition, dietetics, sports science and nursing. Students of medicine, physiology, biochemistry and biological sciences will also find much of great use and interest in this book. All libraries in research establishments, universities and medical schools where these subjects are studied and taught should have multiple copies of this excellent book on their shelves. Keith Frayn is Professor of Human Metabolism at the University of Oxford, UK.Reviews of the First Edition ‘This is an excellent textbook’: Trends in Endocrinology and Metabolism ‘The coverage is excellent for students following courses such as nutrition and human biology’:Biologist ‘This book is ideal for medical students’:Australian Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology

Metabolic Regulation in Mammals presents the basic principles of metabolic control, based on investigations conducted during the past twenty years. It explains the impact of recent advances in cell biology, molecular biology and genetics on the field. Beginning with the basic concepts, this text covers all angles of metabolic regulation, including blood caloric homeostasis, cardiac and skeletal muscle, adipose tissue, and liver metabolism. Review questions, summary sections and worked examples help break down the complexity of the subject and allow the reader to review the principles and concepts presented. Details of metabolic pathways are provided for each body system, with accompanying charts to provide the reader with an overall perspective. This text is ideal for undergraduates across a range of biological and health science disciplines, particularly those taking one or two semester courses in metabolic regulation.

Obesity is a major problem facing doctors in the 21st century.This third edition of a highly-respected textbook combines thelatest in clinical research with a practical approach to guide thesuccessful evaluation, management and treatment of the obesepatient including the large number of complications and otherconditions that can arise as a consequence of it. Written by experts from around the globe, this book is a trulyinternational work recognizing that the approach for the treatmentand management of obesity may vary between differing ethnicitiesand in different countries. The book addresses obesity and itssocial and cultural aspects, biology, associated diseases, lifestages (pediatric and adult), management, and environmental policyapproaches in six sections. As well as covering the latestapproaches to treatment of obesity, Clinical Obesity in Adultsand Children considers the effects of the environment, ofgender and of culture on this problem. This is an invaluable resource for all health careprofessionals, research scientists and public health practitionersinvolved in the prevention and care of patients who are at risk ofobesity or are already obese.

This book covers in detail the mechanisms for how energy is managed in the human body. The basic principles that elucidate the reactivity and physical interactions of matter are addressed and quantified with simple approaches. Three-dimensional representations of molecules are presented throughout the book so molecules can be viewed as unique entities in their shape and function. The book is focused on the molecular mechanisms of cellular processes in the context of human physiological situations such as fasting, feeding and physical exercise, in which metabolic regulation is highlighted. Furthermore the book uses key historical experiments that opened up new concepts in biochemistry to further illustrate how the human body functions at molecular level, helping students to appreciate how scientific knowledge emerges. New to this edition: - 30 challenging practical case studies (2-3 at the end of each chapter) based on movies, novels, biographies, documentaries, paintings, and other cultural and artistic creations far beyond canonic academic exercises. - A set of challenging questions and problems in the end of each case study to further engage students with the applications of medical biochemistry - Insights into the answers to the challenging questions to help steer teaching/learning interactions key to productive lectures, PBL (problem-based learning) or traditional tutorials, or e-learning approaches. Advance praise for the second edition: “The Challenging Cases are compelling both from a scientific viewpoint and for the perspective they provide on the history of medicine.” David M. Jameson, University of Hawaii “Using case studies to reinforce the biochemistry lessons is extremely effective – as well as entertaining!” Joseph P. Albanesi, UT Southwestern Medical Center Advance Praise for the first edition: “This textbook provides a modern and integrative perspective of human biochemistry and will be a faithful companion to health science students following curricula in which this discipline is addressed. This textbook will be a most useful tool for the teaching community.” Joan Guinovart Former director of the Institute for Research in Biomedicine, Barcelona, Spain, and former president of the International Union of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, IUBMB
