About this book

Introduction

Endocrine and Metabolic Disease is in two sections. The first is a systematic review of clinical and therapeutic aspects of endocrine diseases, whilst the second considers the clinical pharmacology of drugs used in endocrinology. All the major areas of endocrinology and metabolism are covered. Thyroid, adrenal and pancreatic disease are discussed in depth and there are separate chapters on the ovary and testes as well as on the pituitary gland and parathyroids. There is a useful pharmacopoeia of drugs used in endocrinology at the end of the volume.
