"While this book is essential for nutrition professionals, it also can be an invaluable tool for all other healthcare professionals in practice. This update continues to meet the needs of registered dietitian nutritionists and enhance their role in overall patient care."

-- Amy Hess Fischl, MS RDN LDN BC-ADM CDCES (University of Chicago Medical Center) Doody's Review


The author is very clear about the intended audience. First, readers must have adequate background in nutrition sciences, physiology and pathophysiology, medical terminology, biochemistry, basic pharmacotherapy, and interpretation of biochemical data. It is written primarily for registered dietitian nutritionists in practice, interns, and upper-level students, as well as other healthcare professionals involved or interested in medical nutrition therapy. The author mentions the book can be used to write protocols, establish nutrition priorities, and demonstrate cost-effective therapies. The author has been an authority on the topic through all nine editions.
