About this book


A. Wayne Meikle and a distinguished panel of expert clinicians bring to bear their extensive knowledge and experience in managing adults and children undergoing hormone replacement therapy for the pituitary, parathyroid, thyroid, pancreas, adrenal glands, and gonads. Emphasizing proper patient management, the book provides to specialists and general practitioners alike time-tested, cutting-edge guidelines on the use, monitoring, and dosage of hormone therapeutics in the treatment of disorders of endocrine function, while giving an exhaustive analysis of each therapy. Comprehensive and eminently practical, Hormone Replacement Therapy captures the most recent advances in hormone replacement therapeutics and is certain to serve endocrinologists, gynecologists, pediatricians, urologists, internists, and family practitioners as today's standard reference for managing and monitoring their patients.
