About this title:
Synopsis:
Basic Medical Endocrinology, 4e provides up-to-date coverage of rapidly unfolding advances in the understanding of hormones involved in regulating most aspects of bodily functions. Topics are approached from the perspective of a physiologist with over 40 years of teaching experience. This fourth edition is richly illustrated in full color with both descriptive schematic diagrams and laboratory findings obtained in clinical studies. Each of the fourteen chapters starts with an overview of the topic and ends with a Suggested Reading list. Initial chapters lay a foundation by presenting basic information and principles of hormone structure, secretion, and actions, and the physiological roles of the principal endocrine glands. Subsequent chapters address the role of the endocrine system in solving such physiological problems as the regulation of the volume and composition of body fluids in the face of changing environmental demands, and the regulation of short- and long-term energy balance. The final chapters deal with the indispensable role of hormones in growth, development and reproduction. * Richly illustrated in full color with both descriptive schematic diagrams and laboratory * Each of the fourteen chapters starts with an overview of the topic and ends with a Suggested Reading list * Fully updated 4th edition text aimed at advanced level students, researchers and professionals

The integrative focus of this book reflects the over 40 years of experience of the editor with teaching physiology and endocrinology to medical students. It is precisely the integrative focus that makes this textbook so valuable. The first chapters provide an overview of the principles of hormone structure and function and the roles of the primary endocrine glands. The remaining chapters deal with how hormones serve to regulate complex physiological functions, such as fuel metabolism, regulation of salt and water balance, calcium balance, growth and reproduction. These chapters provide an integrative framework for understanding how these functions respond to challenges from the internal or external environment. Immediately noticeable in the fourth edition is the rich look of the book with its new color figures (300 total) that make many of the illustrations easier to understand. This book continues to be very readable, concise and provides sufficient basic knowledge of how a particular system works without getting bogged down in the unmanageable details of intracellular signaling cascades or regulation of gene transcription. It provides the framework on which a student can add more complex detail of a specific cell or tissue or of a hormone-related disease. An important change in this book is the increase in coverage of the regulation of fuel metabolism, which is covered in 3 chapters: Hormones of the GI Tract (completely new chapter), The Pancreatic Islets, and Hormonal Regulation of Fuel Metabolism. This increase in coverage is appropriate and reflects the very strong emphasis on this area of research over the past 10 years. The increase in obesity and diabetes in our population has provided the stimulus for this research, which has led to a sizable growth in knowledge of this very complex area. Revisions of other chapters capture most new advances, without greatly expanding the length of the text. However, managing this feat requires leaving out some information. For example, there is no mention of the discovery of kisspeptin, which is made in neurons in the hypothalamus. Kisspeptin is now considered to be the primary regulator of GnRH neurons and reproductive function. Also, it is likely that a future edition will. Bookseller Inventory # ABE_book_new_0123739756
