Obesity is undoubtedly the major nutritional disorder of the western world. It has such a major impact on mortality, morbidity and the quality of life that it most certainly merits consideration as a disease in its own right and should be managed as such.<br><p><i>Obesity and Weight Management in Primary Care</i> covers all the evidence on the disease of obesity which impacts both quality of life and health. It reviews the links to long-term illness, especially diabetes and cardiovascular disease, and dedicates much to the current management strategies and treatment of obesity.<br><p>This book aims to make the task of tackling obesity less daunting for both patients and the health care professionals who treat them.
