The new 5th version of this leading reference presents a complete and up-to-date review and analysis of all aspects of endocrinology, diabetes, and bone metabolism - both in print and online. Readers will also find state-of-the-art information on genetics, proteinomics, and hormone signaling, and coverage the field's hottest topics, in nearly 20 new chapters. Joined by an international team of leading experts - many new to this edition - Drs. Jameson and DeGroot provide guidance that integrates the basic science of endocrinology with clinical medicine and the practical management of endocrine disorders. A clinical focus emphasizes diagnosis and therapy, and over 1,400 illustrations clarify complex concepts. The changes with the field...meets all of your reference needs...and never goes out of date.
