Product Description

Endocrinology Pocket Guide, Full illustrated.
Chapter 1: Introduction to the Endocrine System
The 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.
