Diabesity refers to the linkage of both diabetes and obesity that results in the coexistence of these 2 conditions. Research has identified pathophysiological mechanisms revolving around insulin resistance and hyperinsulinemia. Diabesity has important diagnostic and therapeutic implications.

This book is a multidisciplinary review of diabesity. It highlights the various pharmacological methods of managing the condition.

The book presents 10 chapters contributed by more than 40 experts from around the world. The review starts with an overview of diabesity and progressively describes the relationships of diabesity with the choice of diets and psychological factors. The chapters then cover the role of adipokines as therapeutic biomarkers before presenting research on medicinal and nutritional approaches to treat the condition.

Modern approaches to diabesity treatment such as the use of new bioactive phytochemicals, mitigating meta-inflammation and laboratory techniques are also reviewed in the book.

Diabesity: A Multidisciplinary Approach is a timely reference for clinicians (in endocrinology and family medicine subspecialties) and students of pharmacology and medicinal chemistry on the intricate relationship between diabetes and obesity.
