Описание: The metabolic syndrome is a common syndrome affecting about 20 % of the adult population without known diabetes and cardiovascular disease (CVD) in Europe, and probably the prevalence is of the same magnitude in other industrialised countries worldwide. This syndrome, which is linked to leisure lifestyle and overeating/obesity, can develop into type 2 diabetes, CVD, cancer, gout, nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD), polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), sleep apnoea and dementia and may result in increased mortality.

Описание: This edition of Grant's Atlas has, like its predecessors, required intense research, market input, and creativity. It is not enough to rely on a solid reputation; with each new edition, we have adapted and changed many aspects of the Atlas while maintaining the commitment to pedagogical excellence and anatomical realism that has enriched its long history. Medical and health sciences education, and the role of anatomy instruction and application within it, continually evolve to reflect new teaching approaches and educational models. The health care system itself is changing, and the skills and knowledge that future health care practitioners must master are changing along with it. Finally, technologic advances in publishing, particularly in online resources and electronic media, have transformed the way students access content and the methods by which educators teach content.
