Growth Hormone Deficiency

Physiology and Clinical Management

Laurie E. Cohen

editore: Springer International Publishing AG

pagine: 241

Providing the most current information on the function of human growth hormone (GH) and the consequences of its deficiency, this practical yet comprehensive text is divided into three sections. Part one describes the mechanisms of GH secretion and action, including the physiology of GH and its regulation by sex steroids and thyroid hormones, the effects of both under nutrition and obesity on GH secretion, and the metabolic effects of human recombinant GH therapy. The second section covers diagnostic strategies and tests for GH deficiency in both children and adults, including MRI of the pituitary. The final section describes the different etiologies of GH deficiency, from molecular mechanisms and gene abnormalities to cranial radiation and traumatic brain injury, along with syndromes related to this deficiency. Presenting underlying mechanisms and pathologies, as well as diagnostic methods, Growth Hormone Deficiency will provide the most up-to-date essential information and evidence on this condition for the clinical endocrinologist.

La nutrizione nelle malattie del metabolismo. Una guida per la prevenzione e la terapia

Giacinto A. Miggiano

editore: Il Pensiero Scientifico

pagine: 348

L'eccessivo consumo di cibi energetici e la ridotta attività fisica, caratteristici del nostro stile di vita attuale, alterano il profilo di importanti ormoni regolatori, come l'insulina, contribuendo all'instaurarsi di varie condizioni patologiche, tutte legate tra loro dal "filo rosso" dell'iperinsulinismo e dell'insulino-resistenza. Obesità, diabete e malattie cardiovascolari sono le più conosciute, ma non va trascurato il legame con iperuricemia, osteoporosi, epatopatia cronica e psoriasi, per citarne solo alcune. Di tutte queste condizioni il volume analizza i meccanismi patogenetici ed i correttivi dietetici e di stile di vita che è indispensabile adottare per prevenirle e curarle.

Physician's Guide to the Diagnosis, Treatment, and Follow-Up of Inherited Metabolic Diseases

Carlo Dionisi-Vici, K. Michael Gibson
e altri

editore: Springer-Verlag Berlin and Heidelberg GmbH & Co. K

pagine: 867

This book, combining and updating two previous editions, is a unique source of information on the diagnosis, treatment, and follow-up of metabolic diseases. The clinical and laboratory data characteristic of rare metabolic conditions can be bewildering for both clinicians and laboratory personnel. Reference laboratory data are scattered, and clinical descriptions may be obscure. The Physician's Guide documents the features of more than five hundred conditions, grouped according to type of disorder, organ system affected (e.g. liver, kidney, etc) or phenotype (e.g. neurological, hepatic, etc). Relevant clinical findings are provided and pathological values for diagnostic metabolites highlighted. Guidance on appropriate biochemical genetic testing is provided. Established experimental therapeutic protocols are described, with recommendations on follow-up and monitoring. The authors are acknowledged experts, and the book will be a valuable desk reference for all who deal with inherited metabolic diseases.

Malattie del sistema endocrino e del metabolismo

Giovanni Faglia, Paolo Beck-Peccoz
e altri

editore: McGraw-Hill Education

pagine: 666

La quinta edizione del volume "Malattie del sistema endocrino e del metabolismo" vede la luce forte del successo delle precedenti edizioni, a testimonianza dell'alto livello di interesse che studenti, specializzandi e medici nutrono per la disciplina. La formula di impostazione del libro, che affianca completezza dell'informazione e concisione, si è rivelata negli anni vincente, affermandolo come il testo più autorevole e frequentemente menzionato nelle bibliografie d'esame, ed è rimasta pertanto sostanzialmente immutata. Rinnovamenti significativi sono stati apportati, invece, nella grafica di copertina e degli interni, e nell'organizzazione e aggiornamento dei contenuti, riservando maggiore spazio alla terapia delle principali patologie endocrine, con specifico riguardo ai percorsi terapeutici indicati durante la gravidanza e in condizioni di emergenza. L'obiettivo è di soddisfare il compito non facile di aggiornare il patrimonio di conoscenze di una disciplina in rapida e costante espansione, trasversale a tutta la medicina interna e strettamente connessa con tutte le discipline di base, mantenendo semplicità e compattezza, e di rispondere con efficacia ad aspettative ed esigenze di quanti, docenti e studenti, vorranno continuare a fare riferimento a questo manuale.

Genetic Diagnosis of Endocrine Disorders

Roy E. Weiss, Samuel Refetoff

editore: Academic Press Inc

pagine: 336

Since the beginning of the current century, endocrine disease diagnosis and treatment have moved beyond the standard hormone measurements. While, indeed elevated thyroid hormone levels or low insulin levels signal a specific endocrine disease, correct diagnosis (and therefore correct treatment) depends on an understanding of the molecular basis for the disease. This book will present the "bench to bedside" approach of our understanding of the genetic basis for endocrine disease. It will be organized by endocrine grouping (e.g. Thyroid, Pancreas, Parathyroid, Pituitary, Adrenal, Reproductive and Bone) and genetic/molecular basis for the diagnosis of the various disorders will be discussed. Emphasis will be placed on the practical nature of diagnosing a disease. For example: 1. Which tests should be done for the diagnosis of Diabetes mellitus Type I in children who presented at less than 6 months; at less than 12 years, in adulthood, etc., and why should those tests be done?; 2. Which genes should be evaluated for subjects with congenital hypothyroidism; 3. Which genetic tests should be ordered in obesity?; 4. Which genetic test should be ordered in a patient with Parathyroid Carcinoma?; 5. What is the rationale behind testing for Multiple Endocrine Neoplasia? The field of genetic diagnosis of disease is exploding now, with multiple laboratories developing tests for current clinical use. Most practicing endocrinologists and internal medicine physicians don't understand which test to order, how the tests are done, or how to interpret the results. One of the most exciting development in medicine today is the pharmacogenomics revolution - enocrinologists and geneticists need to understand how personalized medicine will fit into the daily care of patients. While this is a quickly growing area and there are textbooks on pharmacogenomics, there is no one source for the spectrum of Endocrine diseases. Presents a comprehensive, translational look at all aspects of genetic diagnosis of endocrine disorders in one reference work. Endocrinology experts (the researchers who discovered the majority of the gene mutations for a particular disease) teach readers about the molecular basis for diseases in each major endocrine organ system Clear presentation by geneticists of pharmacogenetics and the actual assays used in detecting endocrine diseases Genetic counselors offer expert advice on how to use genetic information in counseling patients

Thyroid and Heart Failure

Giorgio Iervasi, Alessandro Pingitore

editore: Springer Verlag

pagine: 287

Both thyroid dysfunction and heart failure show a high prevalence in the adult population. Frequently, in clinical practice, a multidisciplinary approach is useful to optimize the management of patients with these conditions. Although there is no doubt regarding the close link between cardiovascular pathophysiology and thyroid homeostasis, our understanding of this association is far from being exhaustive. Thyroid hormone regulates the expression of cardiac-specific functional contractile and structural proteins and plays a pivotal role in modulating both diastolic and systolic function as well as peripheral vascular resistance. The close relationship between thyroid and heart dysfunction is strongly supported by recent evidence demonstrating that an altered thyroid profile is a negative prognostic predictor in patients with heart failure. The treatment of chronic heart failure, especially in advanced stages of the disease, continues to be an open and challenging field. The potential of novel thyroid hormone therapies that address the molecular biology of thyroid dysfunction and heart failure thus represents an attractive area of multidisciplinary scientific interest. This book is a readable, integrated, and highly up to date presentation of the clinical, pathophysiological, and basic science aspects of thyroid - heart failure interactions. It addresses a complex subject in an approach that targets a large audience of readers.
