SUMMARY

In endocrine conditions, no less than in most other diseases, prompt recognition and treatment can reduce complications and substantially improve the quality of life. Early Diagnosis and Treatment of Endocrine Disorders, written by a distinguished panel of clinical experts and research scientists, focuses on the early signs and symptoms of common endocrine diseases, surveys the clinical testing needed for a diagnosis, and concisely presents the best current recommendations for therapy. The book covers such new "endocrine" diseases as polycystic ovarian syndrome, obesity, and hypogonadism, but also offers new approaches to such basic conditions as type 2 diabetes and thyroid disease. Written in an orderly and easy-to-follow manner, each chapter discusses the pathophysiology of the condition in question, reviews the basis for its early recognition and treatment, and summarizes the key points in easy-to-read tables. The authors also provide accounts of the emerging, and urgently needed, therapeutic approaches for slowing the epidemic of type 2 diabetes. Comprehensive yet concise, Early Diagnosis and Treatment of Endocrine Disorders offers physicians, endocrinologists, and medical students an up-to-date and highly practical primer on the early signs and symptoms of common endocrine diseases, complete with detailed discussions of both the testing needed to make the diagnosis and the optimal therapies once that diagnosis is confirmed
