Endocrinology: Pathophysiology to Therapy is a comprehensive resource on medical therapies; in each chapter, the relevant endocrine physiology of the medical therapy is presented, followed by a review of the detailed mechanism of action of selected medical interventions. Where applicable, emphasis is placed on clinical pharmacology pearls, such as side effects and therapeutic monitoring guidelines.

Supplementary chapters address additional topics, including immune checkpoint inhibitor-related endocrinopathies, anabolic steroid abuse, pseudo-endocrine conditions, and dynamic tests in clinical endocrinology. Rather than emphasizing guideline-defined treatment protocols, this??book directs attention towards the pathophysiology and fundamental principles of endocrine therapies.

Categories of therapies covered in Endocrinology include:

  • Pituitary gland therapies, including Cushing’s disease, Acromegaly, Prolactinoma, adult growth hormone insufficiency, central diabetes insipidus, and syndrome of inappropriate ADH secretion
  • Thyroid gland therapies, including Hashimoto’s thyroiditis, Graves’ Disease, Thyroid Eye Disease, Riedel’s thyroiditis, Thyroid hormone resistance, and RSH secreting tumors
  • Adrenal gland therapies, including primary adrenal insufficiency, primary hyperaldosteronism, classic congenital adrenal hyperplasia, and nonclassic congenital adrenal hyperplasia
  • Pancreatic gland therapies, including diabetes mellitus, neuroendocrine tumors, and hypoglycemia syndromes such as somatostatin analogs and calcium channel blockers

Endocrinology: Pathophysiology to Therapy Discussing the rationale for using various therapies and enabling readers to appreciate complex concepts in a clinically relevant manner, Endocrinology is an essential reference for practitioners in related fields looking for an accessible and comprehensive resource on the subject.
