This brand new title in the Lecture Notes series covers a core element of the medical school curriculum.

It presents the basic science needed to understand mechanisms of disease and describes the clinical presentations of the disorders associated with different glands, concluding with the relevant investigations and management.

Focusing on conditions commonly encountered on the wards and in exams, with key points to aid revision and recall, this new title is perfect as a course companion and is the ideal revision tool for medical students, specialist nurses, and doctors working on endocrinology rotations. Lecture Notes: Endocrinology and Diabetes is also essential for endocrinology trainees approaching the new Knowledge Based Assessment (KBA).
