This concise introduction to nutrition and diet therapy for nurses and dietetic tech students is organized by diets rather than organ systems. Written in a lively, conversational style, this paperback applies the chapter material to studentsU lives and future careers via Nutrition in Practice and Case Studies. New Clinical Application questions (similar to those found on the Nursing License Exam) ask students to apply clinical chapter material to realistic cases. The fourth edition includes extensive new coverage of food labeling, nutrient and drug interaction, AIDS, cancer, and weight control. It also includes the 1993 Diabetes Control and Complications Trial.
