Pediatric obesity has become an epidemic of seemingly unsurmountable proportions. This book provides perspectives on pediatric obesity for health care providers with such important topics as etiology, prevalence, diagnosis and management. Various complications and co-morbidities of obesity are also explored. The editors thank our many outstanding contributors from different parts of the United States and the world for their invaluable help in this publication. We hope that our readers will find this book useful as the health care profession and society in general seek to improve this serious epidemic as the 21st century continues.
