Inhaltsangabe: Tittle: Abdobesity-the belly fat that kills | Publication Date: August, 2012 This book, Abdobesity-the belly fat that kills, speaks about one of the most important issues on everyone's mind: personal health in the present-day obesity epidemic. Abdobesity is a new term, devised by the book authors, to name obesity's most dangerous form: obesity in the waistline (excess belly fat, aka apple-shape body or abdominal obesity). It is a medical condition, a sign of unhealthy metabolism, and, frequently, a prelude to high blood pressure, abnormal cholesterol, type 2 diabetes and, at a later stage, to artery disease, like heart attacks and strokes. Abdobesity is a clearly visible early warning sign that should not be ignored. Abdobesity reads like an engaging story, a feature that sets it apart from other publications on personal health. Featuring abdobesity as its leading actor, the book takes you along a colorful trip, exploring the biology of obesity and the way it affects metabolism and the health of our arteries. An abundance of innovative and intuitive full-color illustrations and tools is offered, with each illustration providing a clear and meaningful message. The interplay of text and illustrations makes understanding the importance of nutrition, lifestyle, LDL-cholesterol, blood pressure, and blood sugar for our health easy and fun. Abdobesity goes beyond obesity to emphasize the individuality and severity of human illness and explains the dynamics of the patient-physician relationship and the diagnosis process. It improves understanding of cardio-metabolic disease, offers practical and simple ways to monitor it, helps you recognize early warning signs, warns against potential pitfalls when searching for medical information in books or on the web, and, ultimately, supports your active involvement in your own health care, as a productive partner to your doctor. Abdobesity is a must read for each family's wellness gatekeeper and caregiver, for every individual suffering from obesity, type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, abnormal cholesterol, and heart disease or stroke, and for individuals interested in preserving their wellness, for educators, allied health professionals, as well as policy makers.
