Key Features

  • Esta obra trata el concepto del síndrome metabólico en su más amplio sentido y da respuesta a la multitud de incógnitas que todavía presenta esta patología.
  • Se trata de una "enfermedad" nueva, que ha llegado a ser un problema de salud pública muy importante en las sociedades desarrolladas y cuya rápida extensión se debe fundamentalmente a la adopción del estilo de vida occidental.
  • Todos los capítulos presentan un abstract, en inglés y castellano, al inicio de cada capítulo, con los puntos fundamentales que se van a desarrollar en ese capítulo.
