Handbook of Diagnostic Endocrinology, 3e
The clinical laboratory plays a critical role in the diagnosis and
management of endocrine and related metabolic disorders, which are
leading causes of morbidity and mortality in children and adults. The Handbook of Diagnostic Endocrinology, Third Edition, provides
a ready reference for the evaluation, diagnosis, and monitoring of such
disorders. This revision incorporates translational medicine,
connecting what clinicians need to know with those in research providing
a clinical context to which they can relate their molecular findings.
This book solves the needs of clinicians and researchers by bringing
together in one book endocrinology at the molecular and clinical levels.
As the intricacies of intracellular signaling have become better
understood, states of hormone resistance are now increasingly
recognized. The most common endocrinopathy in westernized countries, the
metabolic syndrome, results, to a large extent, from insulin
resistance. The complexity of the circulating forms of various hormones
are acknowledged in this revision.
