Help your students master the essentials of nutrition science and patient care with this concise text! Ideal for one-semester nutrition courses, Williams’ Essentials of Nutrition and Diet Therapy, 13th Edition helps students understand and apply nutrition concepts in the treatment of disease, disease prevention, and life enhancement. The text is broken out into three parts: the basics of nutrients and the body, the life cycle and community nutrition, and clinical nutrition. Case studies demonstrate nutritional interventions in treating both acute and chronic conditions. With a student-friendly, foundational approach, this book is perfect for use in both nursing and allied health programs.

    • Complementary and Alternative Medicine boxes offer uses, contraindications, and advantages/disadvantages of common types of herbs and supplements, and potential interactions with prescription or over-the-counter medications.
    • Chapter summaries and review questions reinforce your understanding of key concepts and their application.
