Clinical Endocrinology and Diabetes at a Glance PDF
8.55 MB PDF
This concise and informative textbook is aimed primarily at medical undergraduates commencing their clinical rotations, and is the first of its kind to be aligned against a nationally endorsed curriculum (developed by the Society for Endocrinology, Diabetes UK and the Association of British Clinical Diabetologists). Feedback from our students has informed our approach to this book, which seeks to progress the reader from a fundamental understanding of the physiological mechanisms underpinning endocrine regulation through to disease processes which disturb this homeostatic balance. In addition to the core material on common endocrine and diabetes presentations, there is an emphasis on key practical skills and provision of clear guidance on peri-operative management, emergency presentations and acute illness. We therefore anticipate that Clinical Endocrinology and Diabetes at a Glance will form a helpful and accessible resource for junior doctors involved in the management of patients with diabetes and endocrine disorders. As with other books in the series there is a major emphasis on the use of clear illustrations and tables to complement the text and consolidate learning.
Parts 1 to 9 cover the regulation and assessment of the endocrine system, pituitary disorders, fluid and electrolyte balance, thyroid disease, metabolic bone disorders, adrenal disease, disorders of the reproductive system, neuroendocrine tumours and endocrine emergencies. Part 10 provides a comprehensive overview of all aspects of diabetes, lipid and weight disorders.
Finally, no textbook makes it to publication without the hard work of a number of contributors. We are particularly grateful to Karen Moore for her diligence in keeping our writing endeavours on track, and to Jan East and Kathy Syplywczak for their help in taking us through the production process.
