Summary: CLINICAL NUTRITION CASE STUDIES includes over 40 clinical cases, introducing students to the the broad range of clinical situations faced as a diet therapist, from alcoholic cirrhosis and insulin- and noninsulin-dependant diabetes to vegetarianism, body building, atherosclerosis, and much more. Each case includes a detailed description of patients' histories and nutritional problems, followed by a list of questions that invite students to apply their classroom and cl...show moreinical lessons to the situations presented.
NEW! Each case study includes an introduction; a list of skills needed, including abbreviations, formulas, laboratory values, and medications; case scenario descriptions; and a set of questions for students to answer. The case studies have been rewritten to be more consistent in depth, length, and difficulty.
This case book can be used standalone or in conjunction with any "Diet Therapy" text, like our Rolfes et al. UNDERSTANDING NORMAL AND CLINICAL NUTRITION, Seventh Edition; Cataldo et al. NUTRITION AND DIET THERAPY, Sixth Edition; or Whitney et al. NUTRITION FOR HEALTH AND HEALTH CARE, Second Edition.

NEW! Expanded coverage of alternative medicines and herbal supplements, as well as protein-energy malnutrition has been included to better reflect the more contemporary nutrition issues presented by patients today. New cases include Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease, high-protein/low-carb diets, and clinical use of nutritional genomics.
NEW! A new table has been added to the beginning of the casebook, providing an alternative to locating or selecting cases based on criteria. The table represents topics/conditions, such as herbal supplements, which are not represented as their own case, but rather part of other cases.
NEW! Lab values have been added to each case, using a similar lab panel based on the one used in hospitals, so students see the same information presented for a patient with each disease condition.
NEW! Instructional material related to each case is provided to adopters in the "Answer Guide," available both in a print and on the text Web site (http://nutrition.wadsworth.com).
