Advances in Metabolic Disorders, Volume 4 covers the developments in the study of metabolic disorders. The book discusses the intestinal factors in the regulation of insulin secretion; antidiuretic hormone synthesis, release, and action under normal and pathological circumstances; and the symptoms, pathophysiology, diagnosis, and clinical syndromes of disaccharide malabsorption. The text also describes the hormonal control of fetal development and metabolism; the placental carbohydrate, fat, and protein metabolism; as well as the metabolic aspects of obesity. The use of liquid formula diets in metabolic studies is also considered. The book will prove invaluable to physicians, endocrinologists, physiologists, and medical students.
