Item description for Basic Endocrinology for Students of Pharmacy and Allied Health Sciences by Andrew Constanti...
This textbook has been written primarily for undergraduate students of pharmacy, toxicology, and medicine who require a concise reference book on basic endocrine function and dysfunction. The book maintains a clear focus on key concepts throughout, which allows for the rapid and accurate retrieval of information necessary for exams. Following an introductory chapter on the organization and function of the endocrine system and the concepts of feedback regulation on hormone release, subsequent chapters deal with the endocrine secretions of each major endocrine gland, mechanisms controlling hormone release, principal actions of the various hormones in the body and the clinically encountered endocrine disorders that can arise when those hormones are under or over secreted. Basic Endocrinology is an ideal up-to-date introductory text for students who need to learn about endocrinology and the common disorders of endocrine function and their therapy, quickly, effectively and with the minimum amount of reading time. Each section ends with a series of short review questions and clinical case studies which will be of use to students for exam preparation and revision. Original source references are also presented for more advanced students who wish to read further.
