The Physiology of the Endocrine System
Existing textbooks on endocrinology do not link theory to the practical world, and thus lead to students asking themselves “What should I do with all this knowledge?” This volume reduces the gap between theoretical knowledge and its practical applications through clinical references that reflect current trends in the management of endocrine disorders. Clinical problems included at the end of some chapters will help medical students to practice diagnosing and treating common hormonal disorders. Each topic also ends with a list of suggested reading that will allow the reader to gain further insights.
