About this book


In The Management of Eating Disorders and Obesity, David J. Goldstein and a panel of highly respected clinicians and researchers provide physicians and other health care professionals who want to improve their diagnostic and treatment successes with a concise, practical, state-of-the-art review of eating disorders, obesity, and their management. Sharing their personal experiences in providing treatment, the expert authors comprehensively examine obesity and eating disorders-bulimia nervosa, anorexia nervosa, and binge eating. They review the history, diagnosis, prevalence, psychiatric comorbidity, and medical complications of each of these diseases, along with the scientific evidence for various pharmacologic therapies. Extensive coverage is given to the treatment of obesity, including the role of exercise, very-low-calorie diets, behavioral strategies, combination therapies, and surgical techniques. The authors also share their practical experience to help improve treatment outcomes-both in the private office and in a multidisciplinary team setting-and fully describe methods for establishing an effective patient-comfortable setting, for ascertaining the time when a patient is ready to lose weight, and for maximizing the use of drug treatment. Patient-centered and timely, The Management of Eating Disorders and Obesity constitutes an essential gold-standard resource for health-care providers interested in improving the management of affected patients. Its state-of-the-art reviews and detailed treatment modalities provide welcome assistance to those physicians seeking maximal impact on their patients' health.
