World Health Organisation (WHO) has estimated that by 2025 there will be approximately 300 million diabetics in the world. India will be housing over 60 million diabetics by that time. Presently, there are approximately 43 million individuals with diabetes in our country. Besides this phenomenal increase in diabetic population, one is horrified to see more and more of obese children and teenagers having T2DM. The incidence of ischaemic heart disease, hypertension and stroke in the young is also on the increase. The prevalence of goitre again has not shown any sign of abatement despite implimentation of the National Iodine Deficiency Diseases Control Programme (NIDDCP).
The medical professionals are fully conscious of this dismal scenario and a lot of research is going on all over the world including India to tackle the problems of T2DM, obesity, hypertension, osteoporosis, dyslipidaemia, male and female infertility and to find out an easy way to ensure population control and eradication of iodine and other deficiency diseases. Several new strategies and formulations are being worked out to improve the situation. The result of these research projects has confirmed that T2DM is potentially preventable with lifestyle modifications and in certain instances with medication. Similarly, other conditions like obesity, hyperlipidaemia, osteoporosis, nutritional deficiency diseases like goitre, cretinism, rickets, osteomalacia and some other metabolic bone diseases are also preventable.
Since early 1990s, new developments and new thinking have appeared about the endocrines and their dysfunctional states. As a result of these advances in endocrine disorders especially T2DM, the therapeutic decisions faced by health care providers have become extremely complex. An endocrinologist is expected to identify high risk individuals, motivate them for coming to the clinic, initiate intervention in the form of appropriate tests to reach an early and definite diagnosis, prevent/delay the onset of disease and organise optimal surveillance to prevent complications and side effects.
To ensure this, it is important; therefore, to have an authoritative reference book available to medical fraternity. Unfortunately, so far there has not been a comprehensive updated text available in the market. Hence, this endeavour to bring out a book which draws on the experiences of some of the most senior and reputed Professors, Consultants, Researchers and Professionals to write on different aspects of endocrinology.
It has been a great pleasure to edit the book Clinical Endocrinology and Diabetes Mellitus: A Comprehensive Text. A book of this magnitude bringing out the latest in each topic will not have been possible without the magnanimity and kindness of our star-studded and elite group of contributors, who agreed upon to write on the topics of their own choice. It was a great experience to be associated with some of the topmost medical scientists and experts in the country, belonging to defence and civil medical services and their younger colleagues. A great care has been taken to make the text an easy and pleasant reading.
The book is presented in two volumes and is divided into six parts. Each part is subdivided into sections and each section has several subsections. Each subsection begins with a brief account of relevant embryology, applied anatomy and physiology before dealing with the main topic. A sincere effort has been made by the contributors to deal with the subject in a comprehensive but concise manner avoiding repetitions. To help the readers understand better, the clinical problem and management approach, several tables, figures, algorithms, flow charts, diagrammatic sketches, pictures, etc. have been included, wherever possible.
This is probably the first comprehensive textbook on Endocrinology and Diabetes Mellitus which is authored by some of the senior-most Indian experts in the field. It is intended to provide a linking bridge between the practice of clinical medicine and science of Endocrinology. The text is aimed to provide a condensed and authoritative approach to the management of various types of endocrinopathies. The treatise is based on an updated scientific information obtained after screening the vast literature and expert clinical experience of some of the famed and better-known teachers and medical scientists.
