5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Resource Aug. 16 2003
By HeyJudy
Format:Paperback
The MANUAL OF ENDOCRINOLOGY AND METABOLISM never will replace a good mystery as bedtime reading, but for anyone with an endocrine disorder--or anyone related to a patient with an endocrine disorder--this book is an excellent resource.
The MANUAL is fairly vast in its scope, at least by the standards of non-scientific laymen. It covers certain childhood cancers, examines the hormonal causes of hypertension, intersects with all insulin related illnesses, including but not limited to diabetes and "Syndrome X." With all issues, pediatric implications are examined as well as adult.
Editor Norman Lavin, M.D. has organized the format of this book intelligently, bunching together groups of abstracts in broad ranges of topics such as thyroid disorders or adrenal disorders.
Quick examination of the credits of contributing authors shows that more than 50 clinicians and researchers participated, most of them practicing physicians, and virtually all of them professors at major American medical schools as well.
While it is unlikely that any layman will find the need to read each included report, the MANUAL is easy to use. Certainly, anyone reading about a medical problem of specific interest will find the information here clear to understand, and the individual reports are fairly short. This book will be a resource in assisting affected patients in discussing their conditions more knowledgably with their own physicians.

The beauty of this reference book is that it offers pithy reviews of common endocrine disorders with a streamlined focus on diagnosis and treatment. It tells you what to know in 10-20 page chapters with excellent use of diagrams and tables. What is especially nice is that areas of controversy are addressed by the authors who then interject their own treatment strategies based on years of experience and background information. I can't wait for the next addition.
