Endocrinology Pocket Guide, Full illustrated.Chapter 1: Introduction to the Endocrine SystemThe endocrine system is a network of glands that secrete hormones directly into the bloodstream, controlling physiological events throughout the body (Figure 1.1). Endocrine function and hormone action mediate long-term effects by acting on all cellular processes and systems. They influence growth and development, tissue function, metabolism, reproduction, sexual development, fluid and nutrient homeostasis, and behavior.Table of ContentsAbbreviationsChapter 1: Introduction to the Endocrine SystemThe endocrine systemHormonesSteroid hormonesProtein and peptide hormonesThe endocrine system and feedback loopsEndocrine disordersConclusionChapter 2: Normal Endocrine PhysiologyIntroductionEndocrine glands and hormonesEndocrine gland hierarchyThe hypothalamusThe pituitary glandThe pineal glandPeripheral endocrine glandsThe thymusThe thyroid glandThe parathyroid glandsThe adrenal glandsThe pancreasThe ovariesThe testesConclusionChapter 3: Growth and Metabolism Endocrine DisordersIntroductionGrowth hormone disorders-overviewIGF, GH, and GHR deficienciesEpidemiologySymptomsGuidelines for GHD diagnosis and managementPrognosisSpecial concernsAcromegalyEpidemiologySymptomsGuidelines for acromegaly diagnosis and managementPrognosisSpecial concernsPancreatic disordersDM-overviewEpidemiologySymptomsGuidelines for DM diagnosis and treatmentPrognosisSpecial concernsObesity-overviewEpidemiologySymptomsGuidelines for obesity diagnosis and managementPrognosisSpecial concernsThyroid Disorders-overviewHyperthyroidismEpidemiologySymptomsGuidelines for hyperthyroidism diagnosis and managementPrognosisSpecial concernsHypothyroidismEpidemiologySymptomsGuidelines for hypothyroidism diagnosis and managementPrognosisSpecial concernsParathyroid disorders-overviewHyperparathyroidismEpidemiologySymptomsGuidelines for hyperparathyroidism diagnosis and managementPrognosisSpecial concernsHypoparathyroidismEpidemiologySymptomsGuidelines for hypoparathyroidism diagnosis and managementPrognosisSpecial concernsConclusionChapter 4: The Reproductive System and Endocrine DisordersIntroductionMenopause and postmenopause-overviewEpidemiologySymptomsGuidelines for diagnosis and management of menopause PrognosisSpecial concernsGynecomastia-overviewEpidemiologySymptomsGuidelines for gynecomastia diagnosis and managementPrognosisSpecial concernsHirsutism-overviewEpidemiologySymptomsGuidelines on evaluation and management of hirsutismPrognosis Special concernsErectile dysfunction-overviewEpidemiologySymptomsGuidelines on ED diagnosis and managementPrognosisSpecial concernsConclusionChapter 5: Genetics, Epigenetics and EndocrinologyIntroductionEndocrine geneticsEndocrine epigeneticsEpigenetics and endocrine disruptersThe genetics and epigenetics of growth and metabolismThe genetics of growthGH or IGF deficienciesThe epigenetics of growthThe genetics of thyroid functionThe epigenetics of thyroid functionThe genetics and epigenetics of the parathyroid functionThe epigenetics of pseudohypoparathyroidismThe genetics and epigenetics of pancreatic functionThe genetics of T2D and obesityThe epigenetics of T2D and obesityThe genetics and epigenetics of reproductive endocrinologyThe genetics and epigenetics of menopauseEpigenetics, epigenetic disrupters, and menopauseThe genetics and epigenetics of postmenopausal statusThe genetics and epigenetics of gynecomastiaThe genetics and epigenetics of erectile dysfunctionThe genetics and epigenetics of hirsutismConclusionChapter 6: LinksSelected References
