Description

NEW RELEASE!!!

Endocrinology encompasses numerous interrelated diseases. It is easy to get lost in the complexity. This book is directed toward the medical, nursing, and PA student as well as the general practitioner who would like a brief overview of the key clinical aspects of endocrinology, with understanding, rather than rote memorization.

While there are other excellent sources with detailed instructions in the step-by-step quantitative management of complex endocrine problems, this book aims to provide an overall understanding of clinical endocrinology with its interweaving associations of hormones, the mechanisms of hormone actions, the diseases that may arise from over-secretion or under-secretion, and the logic behind the diagnosis and treatment of the most common endocrine conditions.

Topics Include:

  • The Pancreas
  • Thyroid and Parathyroid Glands
  • Adrenal Glands
  • Hypertension
  • Ovaries and Testes
  • Pituitary Gland and Hypothalamus
  • Heart, Liver, Kindeys, Stomach and Intestines
  • Placenta
  • Adipose Tissue
  • Multiple Endocrine Neoplasia (MEN)
  • Disorders of Sexual Development (DSD)
  • Infertility
  • Gender Identity Dysphoria
  • Dyslipidemia and Metabolic Syndrome
