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

An Introduction to Behavioral Endocrinology, Fifth Edition, retains all of the features of the bestselling prior editions, and provides an updated, integrated presentation of the study of hormone-behavior-brain interactions. Continuing to emphasize a comparative approach, the text explores the endocrine mechanisms that have evolved in both human and nonhuman animals to solve common problems in survival and reproduction. The fifth edition benefits by the addition of a new coauthor, Lance Kriegsfeld (The University of California, Berkeley), who brings additional expertise and teaching experience in behavioral endocrinology.The text describes interactions among hormones, brain, and behavior from a historical perspective, emphasizing connections among key theories and tracing the emergence of important hypotheses. The book is organized around the conceptual theme that hormones affect behavior by influencing one or more of three "components" of behaving animals--input mechanisms (such as sensory or perceptual processes), the central processing mechanisms of the nervous system (either directly, or by affecting its development or structure), and output mechanisms (such as effectors or peripheral structures). Despite increased coverage of molecular and cellular approaches, the book strives for accessibility for non-biological science students.An Introduction to Behavioral Endocrinology, Fifth Edition, is appropriate for upper-level undergraduate and graduate courses in psychology, biology, anthropology, or zoology. It contains several important pedagogical features: *Learning objectives (new to this edition) are set out at the beginning of each chapter. *Key terms are defined in the margins throughout the text. *The text is richly illustrated with color photographs and drawings. *Chapter-end summaries restate important points. *Discussion questions and suggested further readings are also included in each chapter. *The text contains nearly 2,400 references to the literature in behavioral endocrinology.RESOURCESFor StudentsAs with previous editions, the book is accompanied by animations, video, web links, sound files, a complete glossary, and graphics--accessible via the Companion Website--to aid in understanding the material in the text.For Instructors-The Instructor's Resource Library includes electronic versions of all the textbook's figures and tables. All images are provided as both high- and low-resolution JPEGs, formatted and optimized for excellent legibility when projected. All figures and tables are also provided in ready-to-use PowerPoint presentations.-The Test Bank includes multiple-choice, short-answer, and essay questions for each chapter of the textbook. Prepared by the author, these questions are a helpful resource that can greatly speed the process of preparing exams and quizzes for the course.
Now in full colour, this Fourth Edition retains all the features of the bestselling prior editions, and provides an integrated study of hormone--behavior--brain interactions, emphasizing a comparative approach. The text contains over 2,000 references and is accompanied by animations, video, sound files, and graphics to aid in understanding.
Recognising a need to promote and enhance teaching of clinical endocrinology and diabetes in UK medical schools, the Society for Endocrinology, in collaboration with Diabetes UK and the Association of British Clinical Diabetologists, created a national curriculum that sets out the minimum recommended standards for undergraduate medical education. Clinical Endocrinology and Diabetes at a Glance corresponds to the curriculum and covers all important areas of diabetes and endocrinology in a clinically relevant and concise manner, with complementary figures to ensure principles are explained clearly. It highlights key practical skills for undergraduates in line with the GMC recommendations that medical graduates should be well prepared for their Foundation posts. There is also emphasis on the importance of multidisciplinary teams in the management of endocrine diseases and diabetes. These include sections on structured education programmes, psychosocial aspects, and patient self-management and monitoring. Clinical Endocrinology and Diabetes at a Glance will serve as a valuable resource for medical students and junior doctors treating patients with these conditions.
