This book provides the most up-to-date information on the basic and clinical aspects of

insulinoma, endocrine disease in pregnancy and steroid induced osteoporosis.
Investigates both the endocrine functions of the kidneys and how the kidney acts as a 
target for hormones from other organ systems. 
Presents a uniquely comprehensive look at all aspects of endocrine changes in 
pregnancy and cardiovascular effects of androgens. Clear translational presentations

This book contains many important innovations.
I would like to thank our authors who have helped in the preparation of this book. We 
hope it would be useful as an up-to-date resource for endocrinology.
We are particularly grateful for support of our publishers. Their efforts have been 
essential in ensuring the successful publication of this high quality book.

support during the inevitable periods when’book work’ intruded on family life.
