Identifying children and adolescents at the earliest stages of chronic disease onset should be the goal of clinical practice, yet there is no clear guidance for defining the risk of metabolic syndrome or appropriate risk-factor thresholds in these groups. If children are identified early in the disease process, lifestyle and clinical interventions can be instituted when they are potentially more effective.
Pediatric Metabolic Syndrome: Comprehensive Clinical Review and Related Health Issues approaches the pediatric metabolic syndrome by elucidating its effects on specific organ systems and by considering the problem through understanding the social, psychological and economic consequences of it. The Editors have recruited an invited group of esteemed experts in the field to provide the most timely and informative approaches on how to deal with this health crisis. Through educating our practitioners, our future researchers, our health and community organizations, our legislators and our families and children, we have the best chance at improving the health trajectory of the next generation.

"Pediatric metabolic syndrome (PMS) is in the process of being defined and its implications studied. This is a timely and needed addition to the literature that begins to describe this rapidly emerging entity in pediatrics. ... This book is aimed at primary care providers for children and those in subspecialties who might encounter children with this problem. ... This well-written book is a necessity for those in the field currently grappling with this problem. It should be considered an initial start to this process." (Elizabeth Eames Littlejohn, Doody's Review Service, July, 2012)
