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

A guided tour through the strange science of hormones and the age-old quest to control them.Metabolism, behavior, sleep, mood swings, the immune system, fighting, fleeing, puberty, and sex: these are just a few of the things our bodies control with hormones. Armed with a healthy dose of wit and curiosity, medical journalist Randi Hutter Epstein takes us on a journey through the unusual history of these potent chemicals from a basement filled with jarred nineteenth-century brains to a twenty-first-century hormone clinic in Los Angeles.Brimming with fascinating anecdotes, illuminating new medical research, and humorous details, Aroused introduces the leading scientists who made life-changing discoveries about the hormone imbalances that ail us, as well as the charlatans who used those discoveries to peddle false remedies. Epstein exposes the humanity at the heart of hormone science with her rich cast of characters, including a 1920s doctor promoting vasectomies as a way to boost libido, a female medical student who discovered a pregnancy hormone in the 1940s, and a mother who collected pituitaries, a brain gland, from cadavers as a source of growth hormone to treat her son. Along the way, Epstein explores the functions of hormones such as leptin, oxytocin, estrogen, and testosterone, demystifying the science of endocrinology.A fascinating look at the history and science of some of medicine’s most important discoveries, Aroused reveals the shocking history of hormones through the back rooms, basements, and labs where endocrinology began. 10 illustrations
