Progress in Clinical Endocrinology presents a critical review of role of hormones in metabolism. The book discusses the endocrine regulation of protein metabolism; the etiology of endemic goiter; and the relation of nodular goiter to thyroid carcinoma. Some of the topics covered in the text are the description of hyperparathyroidism; the use of radioactive iodine in the diagnosis, study, and treatment of thyroid diseases; and hypothyroidism in children. The clinical use of antithyroid drugs; the pituitary regulation of adrenal cortical activity; and the influence of the adrenal cortex on the metabolism of food are also considered. The book further tackles the surgical treatment and postoperative care of hyperparathyroidism; the clinical diagnosis of Cushingas syndrome; and the analysis of the diagnosis and treatment of Addisonas disease. A study of the theory and practice of diabetes treatment is also presented. A chapter is devoted to the diagnostic significance of pregnandiol excretion. The book can provide useful information to endocrinologists, doctors, students, and researchers.SHELTON, E. KosT, M.D., D.Sc., F.A.C.P.
