Handbook of Diagnostic Endocrinology

The clinical laboratory plays a critical role in the diagnosis and management of endocrine and related metabolic disorders, which are leading causes of morbidity and mortality in children and adults. The Handbook of Diagnostic Endocrinology, Third Edition, provides a ready reference for the evaluation, diagnosis, and monitoring of such disorders. This revision incorporates translational medicine, connecting what clinicians need to know with those in research providing a clinical context to which they can relate their molecular findings. This book solves the needs of clinicians and researchers by bringing together in one book endocrinology at the molecular and clinical levels. As the intricacies of intracellular signaling have become better understood, states of hormone resistance are now increasingly recognized. The most common endocrinopathy in westernized countries, the metabolic syndrome, results, to a large extent, from insulin resistance. The complexity of the circulating forms of various hormones are acknowledged in this revision. Each chapter focuses on the biochemical tests that are required, either in the basal state or following provocation or suppression, to assist in the diagnosis of the various disorders Describes proper sample collection and relevant interpretations of laboratory tests Contains essential molecular biology and incorporates it with the clinical information Includes the discovery of new diagnostic and treatment methods

Best of Five MCQs for the Endocrinology and Diabetes SCE

Best of Five MCQs for the Endocrinology and Diabetes SCE is a dedicated revision guide designed to assist candidates in preparing for the Endocrinology and Diabetes Specialty Certificate Examination (SCE). It contains 350 best of five questions covering the main themes of the specialty curriculum. The questions mirror the format that the candidates can expect to find in the exam and cover all of the key topics, including pituitary gland and hypothalamus, thyroid gland, parathyroid gland and bone disease, adrenal glands, reproductive endocrinology, and diabetes and lipid metabolism. Explanatory answers include references to the most up to date NICE and international guidelines as well as other literature to enable further reading and study. This second edition has been fully updated, with 20 extra questions added to the diabetes chapter to reflect the new exam weightings. Providing a thorough assessment of the reader's endocrinological knowledge, this is the only revision book candidates will need to pass the Endocrinology and Diabetes Speciality Certification Examination first time.

Biochemical Changes during the Human Lifespan

Throughout life, human beings undergo several hormonal changes responsible for growth and maturation. These alterations in hormone secretion include enhanced or decreased production, the latter of which is mainly observed during aging. These processes are intrinsic to human development, but may vary from individual to individual. Thus, experienced metabolic changes can alter the state of health and even trigger the development of certain pathologies. The main metabolic differences observed in newborns and children when compared to adults result from the fact that the organism is not yet fully developed. During adolescence, changes in hormone secretion occur that lead to sexual maturation. In the same way, during pregnancy, women suffer alterations in the secretion of certain hormones which allow the adaptation of their bodies to that physiological state and the normal development of the foetus. As for the elderly, a general decline of health is observed during ageing, and hormonal dysfunctions, such as the development of insulin resistance and thyroid dysfunction, frequently occur. This volume focuses on metabolic and hormonal changes during the human lifetime. Screenings best suited for each life stage, the reasons for doing them, and the diseases they allow the diagnosis of are also presented.

Advanced Physiology and Pathophysiology

Note to Readers: Publisher does not guarantee quality or access to any included digital components if book is purchased through a third-party seller. Specifically designed for future healthcare providers who will diagnose, manage, and prescribe This advanced physiology and pathophysiology text is designed to address the specific learning needs of future nurse practitioners, physician assistants, and other advanced healthcare providers caring for patients across the lifespan. Focusing on practical applications of physiology, it facilitates in-depth understanding of important pathophysiological concepts as they relate to major disorders commonly seen in clinical practice and includes comprehensive pediatric and geriatric considerations. This knowledge is crucial to providing the foundation required to be an informed and confident clinical decision maker. The author team includes experienced clinicians and educators: nurses and nurse practitioners, physician assistants, doctors of pharmacy, physicians, and basic scientists. This collaboration has produced a text that carefully details and richly illustrates the cellular structure and function of each organ system and mechanisms of associated major clinical disorders. Uniquely interweaving aspects of organ function during healthy states with disease-associated changes, the text emphasizes and extends the basic science foundation to practical clinical applications. The text promotes a deep understanding of cellular function in health and disease that provides the bedrock knowledge required to master pharmacology for prescriptive practice. Equally important, the solid foundation of applied pathophysiological mechanisms offered in this text prepares the student clinician to care for patients with a broad variety of disorders. This resource not only provides a deep dive into pathophysiology, but it also examines why patients often present with particular symptoms, the rationale for ordering specific diagnostic tests and interpretation of results, and common management strategies that proceed from the underlying pathophysiology. Key Features: Designed explicitly to build a foundation for pharmacology and clinical courses that lead to successful clinical practice and prescribing Includes comprehensive lifespan considerations with key insights from specialists in pediatric and geriatric pathophysiology Provides a complete chapter on the basic principles of genetics and genomics with coverage of genetic variations, assessment, and genomics woven throughout the book Integrates thought questions and case studies to promote discussion and synthesis of information Offers a unique Bridge to Clinical Practice in each chapter to translate science to patient care Includes more than 500 images to illustrate complex scientific concepts Summarizes the contents succinctly with handy key points at the end of each chapter Provides access to the fully searchable ebook, including student ancillaries on Springer Publishing ConnectTM
