|Insulin Resistance: The Metabolic Syndrome X (Contemporary Endocrinology)
Lowest new price: $44.00
Lowest used price: $98.42
List price: $279.00
Brand: Gerald M Reaven
Gerald Reaven, the discoverer of Syndrome X, and a panel of world-class investigators thoughtfully summarize our current understanding of how insulin resistance and its compensating hyperinsulinemia play a major role in the pathogenesis and clinical course of high blood pressure and cardiovascular disease-the so-called diseases of Western civilization. These distinguished authorities detail, for the first time, the pathophysiological consequences and the clinical syndromes, excluding Type 2 diabetes, related to insulin resistance. They also examine the genetic and lifestyle factors that contribute to the wide differences in insulin action that exist in the population at large. Timely and authoritative, Insulin Resistance: The Metabolic Syndrome X illuminates the full importance of insulin resistance as a major cause of hypertension, heart disease, and polycystic ovary syndrome.

|The Importance of Fathers: A Psychoanalytic Re-evaluation (The New Library of Psychoanalysis)
Lowest new price: $40.50
Lowest used price: $31.25
List price: $47.95
It is widely acknowledged that children need structure, security, stability and attachment to develop and flourish, and that the father is an important part of this.
Issues such as high divorce rates, new family structures, increased mobility, women's liberation and contraception are very common in society. This book sets out to explore what has happened to men and to fathers during all these changes and transitions. Judith Trowell and Alicia Etchegoyen, along with an array of renowned contributors, consider the importance of fathers in various situations, including:
- the role of the father at different stage of children's development
- the missing father
- loss of a father
It is argued that the father is important, not only to support the main carer (usually the mother) but also to provide a caring, thinking, comfortable, confident presence.
