Focusing on day-to-day management issues, this handbook allows endocrinology trainees and consultants in practice to quickly access practical information and clinical knowledge. Investigations are combined with the most current therapeutic approaches. The author explores all aspects of the endocrine system, from relatively common disorders like hypothyroidism to the effect of calcium and sodium on the glands. The format makes this text a useful portable guide for the clinic and the ward. Endocrinology: Specialist Handbook also profiles diseases such as Paget's and Graves.
