SUMMARY

Updating and expanding his highly praised Hormone Replacement Therapy (Humana Press, 1999), A. Wayne Meikle, MD, brings together in Endocrine Replacement Therapy in Clinical Practice the extensive knowledge of leading clinicians in managing children and adults in need of hormonal replacement therapy. These world-class experts offer comprehensive guidelines for the diagnosis and cutting-edge treatment of disorders of the pituitary, parathyroid, thyroid, pancreas, adrenal glands, and gonads. They also review the endocrine testing used in diagnosis and monitoring, comparable regimens when available, as well as considerations of cost, therapeutic effectiveness, and route of administration. Among the special topics covered are approaches to both male and female contraception, the enhancement of fertility in both men and women, the management of diseases affecting the parathyroid, vitamin D and calcium metabolism, updated guidelines on the use of growth hormone secretagogues in children and adults, and androgen therapy in aging and muscle wasting. Comprehensive and authoritative, Endocrine Replacement Therapy in Clinical Practice makes available to endocrinologists, family practitioners, pediatricians, internists, neurologists, urologists, obstetricians, and gynecologists the many proven techniques of hormonal replacement therapy that, in all their complexity, no single physician could easily master without this practical, cutting-edge guide
