--acts as a single source comprehensive review of the evidencenciary links between insulin resistance, antipsychotic treatment, cognitive disorders, affective disorders, and Alzheimer's disease
--contains detailed discussions on metabolic syndrome, including its relationships with insulin resistance and cardiovascular disease, as well as new treatments to help prevent diabetes.
--the first book of its kind to tie Metabolic Syndrome with psychiatric disorders, and the possibilities that common antipsychotic treatments may be having an adverse effect on patients.

Studies have shown that patients with psychiatric and cognitive disorders have an increased prevalence of hyperinsulinemia, insulin resistance, and other abnormalities considered symptomatic of metabolic syndrome. With this new information, there is growing recognition that insulin resistance is a factor in many cognitive disorders, including Alzheimer's disease, vascular dementia, as well as psychiatric disorders such as schizophrenia and affective disorders. This book present a complete overview and the relationship between metabolic syndrome, insulin resistance, and psychiatric and cognitive disorders. The book will also show the relationship that exists between affective disorders and Alzheimer's disease as a result of insulin resistance, and discuss the impact on treatment.
