The authors place this book at the disposition of patients necessitating diet therapy. The idea is to increase the compliance of patients bringing together therapeutic needs and tasteful regional eating habits. In proposing dietetic restriction the intention is not to deprive the patient of the pleasures of food, pleasures which are here presented in a purely Mediterranean diet. Similar publications are certainly valid from the technical point of view, apart from those inclining towards ethnic food which require ingredients presented against a background of customs and a way of thinking so different from the Mediterranean one which is widely recognised as the best one, under a clinical point of view. Hence, the idea of presenting and consolidating recipes typical of the Mediterranean region using the necessary ingredients which are sufficient for the desired therapeutic purpose.

This important reference, edited by Ronald Ross Watson and Betsy Dokken, collects the research needed to make the distinct connection between pre-diabetes, diabetes, and cardiovascular disease. Glucose Intake and Utilization in Pre-Diabetes and Diabetes: Implications for Cardiovascular Disease explains the mechanisms of progression from pre-diabetes to diabetes to cardiovascular disease. Since pre-diabetes and diabetes are important cardiovascular disease risk factors, and impaired glucose metabolism among cardiac patients is extremely prevalent, the importance of reviewing pre-diabetes and its involvement in CVD complications is vital as one applies food and glycemic control to slow progress to diabetes and heart disease. The book further focuses on glucose intake and utilization in diabetes, including coverage of diabetes in the development and pathology of cardiovascular disease, risks and epidemiology of cardiovascular problems promoted by diabetes, macrovascular effects and their safety in therapy of diabetics, beta cell biology and therapy of diabetes, and nutrition to modulate diabetes. Offers a complete review of cardiac health problems occurring with significant frequency in patients relative to their ability to regulate glucose Presents coverage of the role of glucose utilization, development of pre-diabetes and the ultimate development of various cardiovascular diseases Provides thorough dietary, nutrition, complementary and alternative botanical therapies for pre-diabetes and diabetes to halt the progression to cardiovascular disease
