This book is essential for physicians working in hormone therapy and particularly for those who treat multiple endocrine deficiencies. It helps them further deepen their skills not only in detecting the well-known signs of severe deficiencies but also in recognizing the variety of signs of milder forms of deficiencies and excesses whose knowledge is crucial for the follow-up.
Inside of the Atlas of Endocrinology for Hormone Therapy book, the reader will find next to approximately 530 pictures of patients with physical endocrine signs, often not shown in the traditional Atlas of Endocrinology, schematic overviews of the many physical signs of deficiencies and excesses, illustrated with drawings of body shadows that make it all more comprehensible. Enclosed are also lists of typical complaints a patient may present when affected by a hormone deficiency or excess. This atlas book is unique: it also shows lists of scientific references supporting the association between signs and symptoms and their corresponding hormone deficiencies and excesses.
