With the rapid development of new and more reliable assays, and aided by the molecular and genetic approaches that continuingly deepen our understanding of these diseases, our ability to diagnose patients with endocrine disease has dramatically increased. In Handbook of Diagnostic Endocrinology, experienced physicians concisely explain the pathophysiology and clinical manifestations of these disorders and survey all the latest laboratory tests used in their diagnosis. Topics range widely from an overview of the diagnosis of diabetes and the long-term monitoring of its complications to the evaluation of menstrual dysfunction. Coverage is also given to the diagnosis of pituitary tumors, Cushing's syndrome, thyroid disease, and hypoglycemia; the evaluation of endocrine-induced hypertension; the assessment of dyslipidemia and obesity; and novel approaches to diagnosing hyper- and hypocalcemia. There are also discussions of osteoporosis, hypogonadism and erectile dysfunction, and hyperandrogenism in women. The authors each review the complex physiological basis of the relevant endocrine processes and provide richly instructive recommendations for the followup and long-term management of patients. Comprehensive and state-of-the art, Handbook of Diagnostic Endocrinology offers today's practicing endocrinologists and internists, as well as students and fellows in training, both an authoritative survey of current approaches, as well as a working proficiency in the diagnosis of the complete range of endocrine disorders
