This volume in the Mosby Physiology Monograph Series explains the fundamentals of renal physiology in a clear and concise manner. It provides you with a basic understanding of normal kidney function at the cellular and molecular level. Attractively illustrated with clear 2-color diagrams, this volume also facilitates study with learning objectives, overview boxes, chapter summaries, and clinical cases with questions and explained answers. Plus, online access via STUDENT CONSULT makes this an even more powerful learning resource. Stay current with clear, accurate, and up-to-the-minute coverage of the physiology of normal renal function focusing on the needs of the student. Bridge the gap between normal function and disease with pathophysiology content throughout the book. Master the material more easily with learning objectives, overview boxes, key words and concepts, chapter summaries, and clinical cases with questions and explained answers. Understand complex concepts by examining more than 250 clear, 2-color diagrams. Apply what you've learned to real-life clinical situations using featured clinical commentaries. Includes STUDENT CONSULT access at no additional charge, enabling you to consult the book online, anywhere you go · perform quick searches · add your own notes and bookmarks · follow Integration Links to related bonus content from other STUDENT CONSULT titles-to help you see the connections between diverse disciplines · and more! (1) Revise and update the content of all chapters (2) Revise and update the figures (perhaps 10% new figures, replacing old figures) (3) Revise and update the Appendices (notably the test questions, which we think should be reorganized by chapter-students always ask us for more questions-so we will increase by 50 questions). (4) Eliminate key words at the end of chapters and - replace them with "clinical pearls", i.e., esstential points that have a clinical relevance (5) Review and revise the clinical cases (we will run them by our clinical colleagues) (6) Label the inserts clinical and basic science like we do in B&L.

Science is beginning to understand that our thinking has a deep and complicated relationship with our eating. Our thoughts before, during, and after eating profoundly impact our food choices, our digestive health, our brain health, and more. Yet most of us give very little thought to our food beyond taste and basic nutritional content. In this revolutionary book, Dr. Caroline Leaf packs an incredible amount of information that will change readers' eating and thinking habits for the better. Rather than getting caught up in whether we should go raw or vegan, gluten-free or paleo, Leaf shows readers that every individual is unique, has unique nutritional needs, and has the power to impact their own health through the right thinking. There's no one perfect solution. Rather, she shows us how to change the way we think about food and put ourselves on the path towards health. Anyone who is tired of traditional diet plans that don't work, who struggles with emotional eating, or who simply isn't satisfied with their level of health will find in this book the key to discovering how they can begin developing a healthier body, brain, and spirit.
