A whole body physiological approach to the study of metabolism written for undergraduate students in biochemistry, medicine, and life sciences. Stressing the integration of metabolism and how different tissues interact to maintain energy homeostasis, the volume surveys metabolism in relation to regulation, digestion and intestinal absorption, organs and tissues, endocrine organs and hormones, the integration of carbohydrate, fat, and protein n the body, the nervous system, lipoprotein, diabetes mellitus, and body weight regulation. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.Reseña del editor:
In this volume, the subject of metabolic regulation is placed in a human context. The components of food are followed as they are processed from ingestion through digestion and absorption to their distribution to the tissues, storage and mobilization and ultimate oxidation. The way in which these processes are regulated by the endocrine and nervous systems is described, as well as the metabolic adjustments necessitated by "extreme conditions" such as fasting and strenuous exercise. There is also some discussion on the conditions in which normal metabolic regulation is disturbed: diabetes, dyslipoproteinaemias and obesity. A complementary title to this book is "Understanding the Control of Metabolism".
