Description - Neurologic Consequences of Malnutrition by Marco T Medina

"Nearly 800 million people in the world do not have enough to eat. In many developing countries, inadequate amounts of food and inadequate diversity of food continue to be priority health problems. Malnutrition in all its forms increases the risk of disease and early death. Neurologic Consequences of Malnutrition , edited by Dr. Marco T. Medina, seeks to underline the magnitude of neurologic diseases related to malnutrition and the importance of early detection and opportune treatment. Designed particularly for neurologists practicing in low-resource environments, this text is written by a multinational group of expert practicing neurologists who treat patients suffering from the neurologic consequence of malnutrition. Neurologic Consequences of Malnutrition begins with an overview of the epidemiology and incidence of malnutrition and neurologic disorders. There is a discussion of the clinical and functional assessment of undernourished patients, focusing on patients with Protein-Energy Malnutrition, as well as an extensive and complete classification of the different micronutrient deficiencies related to neurologic symptoms. Other topics covered include the relationship between alcoholism and malnutrition, a major public health challenge in developing nations, and the neurophysiologic findings in undernourished patients.
