Obesity continues to be a primary global health problem and there is often confusion about the underlying causes and consequences of obesity. Obesity: Integrating Physiological, Pathophysiological and Clinical Perspectives provides coverage across a wide range of physiological disciplines covering obesity science, at a sufficient level to be understood by physiologists who may not be an expert in all subdisciplines, with the aim to unify the physiological perspectives on obesity.

Divided into three sections, the book covers causes of obesity (e.g., regulation of energy balance), the consequences of obesity (e.g., metabolic, disease risk etc.), and strategies to prevent and/or manage obesity (e.g., bariatric surgery, pharmacotherapy, and lifestyle).

This is a volume in Elsevier’s new series Hot Topics in Physiology, published in association with the International Union of Physiological Sciences (IUPS). It is an ideal reference for clinicians, dieticians, exercise physiologists and molecular biologists.
