Provides essential knowledge on lifestyle medicine as an intervention for healthy aging and the prevention and management of cardiometabolic diseases

Prevention and Management of Cardiometabolic Disease covers the interface between lifestyle medicine, healthy aging, and cardiometabolic health. This authoritative textbook examines the impact of cardiorespiratory fitness, exercise, or increased physical activity on human health and disease, as well as the combined role of increased fitness and medications in the management of chronic disease. It provides also valuable information about the role of diet and nutrition on the prevention and management of cardiometabolic diseases and healthy aging.

Logically structured chapters introduce a specific chronic disease, describe its pathophysiology and mechanisms, present exercise and dietary interventions and strategies for every condition, and more.

This book also:

  • Highlights the role of lifestyle medicine in favorable health outcomes, including cardiometabolic health, healthy aging, and improved quality of life
  • Presents all relevant aspects of diabetes mellitus, hypertension, heart disease, cancer, kidney failure, obesity, dyslipidemia, and other conditions
  • Discusses the implications and health benefits of physical activity in adults
  • Provides the latest data in lowering the risk of non-communicable diseases (such as diabetes and cardiovascular disease), and longevity.

Prevention and Management of Cardiometabolic Disease: Physical Activity, Fitness, and Healthy Aging is an excellent textbook for upper-level undergraduate and graduate students who studied subjects such as: Kinesiology, Exercise Physiology, Exercise Epidemiology, Nutrition, Physical Education, and Allied Health Sciences. This book is also a highly useful reference for health professionals interested in introducing lifestyle medicine as an intervention for healthy aging and the prevention and management of cardiometabolic diseases.
