Testosterone: From Basic to Clinical Aspects 1st ed. 2017 Edition

Research on testosterone is increasing in many senses; however there is still much controversy regarding its physiology and clinical use. This book addresses these topics, providing a broad over­view about testosterone, from its basic fea­tures to the most recent evidence of clin­ical applicability. Also, specific conditions in which testosterone play a pivotal role are discussed in detail, such as hypogonadism, misuse and abuse, puberty, cardiovascular effects and testosterone therapy. Although not essential for survival, testosterone represents the essence of male biological function, being the important testicular androgen in men. Low serum testosterone levels are asso­ciated with cardiovascular morbidity, meta­bolic syndrome, type 2 diabetes mellitus, atherosclerosis, osteoporosis, sarcopenia, and mortality. Conversely, increased serum levels of testosterone may lead to deleteri­ous events. In general, there is increasing evidence that serum testosterone is a major biomarker status of men’s health in general.

Testosterone: From Basic to Clinical Aspects is an indispensable reference for all those who seek state-of-the-art knowledge regarding this hormone, from basic issues (including pharma­cology and physiology) through clinical aspects (related diseases and supplementation ther­apy).

Endocrine and Metabolic Medical Emergencies: A Clinician’s Guide

This fascinating book, Endocrine and Metabolic Medical Emergencies, edited by Dr. Glenn Matfin, MSC (Oxon), MB ChB, FACE, FACP, FRCP, draws its subject matter from nearly 100 noted endocrinologists worldwide. The book advises clinicians and other health professionals on treating acute medical and critically ill patients who experience endocrine and metabolic emergencies, such as dangerously low blood sugar or excessive thyroid hormone levels. As hormone health conditions like diabetes, osteoporosis, and thyroid disorders become more commonplace, hospitals are seeing more patients who need emergency assessment and treatment for related complications. “A given patient entering the emergency room or ICU may have a complex constellation of health problems, including endocrine conditions,” said Matfin, a consultant physician in the United Kingdom National Health Service (NHS). “Clinicians need practical resources to ensure their patients receive the best possible care, and that is what this book delivers.” Dr. Matfin was previously medical director of the International Diabetes Center and Clinical Professor of Medicine at the University of Minnesota, in Minneapolis. Prior to this, he was a senior physician and director of the Inpatient Hyperglycemia Program at the Joslin Diabetes Center, Harvard Medical School, in Boston. Edited by an internationally recognized expert in the field, Endocrine and Metabolic Medical Emergencies is an invaluable text and reference packed with practical advice for clinicians, practitioners, students, and other health care professionals working with complex inpatients and endocrine abnormalities, and it features new insights on the diagnosis and treatment of acute endocrine emergencies.
