Skin Diseases, Nutrition and Metabolism.

Skin Diseases, Nutrition and Metabolism. This book fills a much neglected void in discussing the nutritional and metabolic aspects of cutaneous disease. Much has been written of the relationship between dermatology and general medicine, and in this volume a definite contribution to this field has been made by this exposition of the basic metabolic and nutritional factors of the skin and its diseases. The book has been divided into five parts. Part I deals with the influence of the basic principles of nutrition on the function of the skin. The fundamentals of water, mineral, carbohydrate, lipid and protein metabolism are reviewed in the first section of this part. In the second section the influence of various diets on the metabolism of the skin is discussed. Consideration is given not only to low and high carbohydrate, fat and protein diets but to acidifying, dehydration, low sodium chloride and low potassium diets and other possible variations.

Abstract

This book fills a much neglected void in discussing the nutritional and metabolic aspects of cutaneous disease. Much has been written of the relationship between dermatology and general medicine, and in this volume a definite contribution to this field has been made by this exposition of the basic metabolic and nutritional factors of the skin and its diseases. The book has been divided into five parts. Part I deals with the influence of the basic principles of nutrition on the function of the skin. The fundamentals of water, mineral, carbohydrate, lipid and protein metabolism are reviewed in the first section of this part. In the second section the influence of various diets on the metabolism of the skin is discussed. Consideration is given not only to low and high carbohydrate, fat and protein diets but to acidifying, dehydration, low sodium chloride and low potassium diets and other possible variations. Part
