Description

The clinical laboratory plays a critical role in the diagnosis and management of endocrine and related metabolic disorders, which are leading causes of morbidity and mortality in children and adults. The Handbook of Diagnostic Endocrinology, Third Edition, provides a ready reference for the evaluation, diagnosis, and monitoring of such disorders. This revision incorporates translational medicine, connecting what clinicians need to know with those in research providing a clinical context to which they can relate their molecular findings. This book solves the needs of clinicians and researchers by bringing together in one book endocrinology at the molecular and clinical levels. As the intricacies of intracellular signaling have become better understood, states of hormone resistance are now increasingly recognized. The most common endocrinopathy in westernized countries, the metabolic syndrome, results, to a large extent, from insulin resistance. The complexity of the circulating forms of various hormones are acknowledged in this revision.

Key Features

  • Each chapter focuses on the biochemical tests that are required, either in the basal state or following provocation or suppression, to assist in the diagnosis of the various disorders
  • Describes proper sample collection and relevant interpretations of laboratory tests
  • Contains essential molecular biology and incorporates it with the clinical information
  • Includes the discovery of new diagnostic and treatment methods

Readership

Clinical chemists, chemical pathologists, endocrinologists, and senior medical technologists to aid them in the investigation of endocrine and metabolic disorders

Dr. Winter is Professor of Pathology, Immunology and Laboratory Medicine; Pediatrics; and Molecular Genetics and Microbiology at the University of Florida in Gainesville, Florida. Dr. Winter holds boards in Pediatrics, Pediatric Endocrinology and Chemical Pathology. He is a diplomat of the American Board of Clinical Chemistry (DABCC), a fellow of the American Association for Clinical Chemistry Academy (FAACC) and is a fellow of the College of American Pathologists (FCAP). Between 1993 and 2006 he served as Medical Director for clinical chemistry at Shands Hospital at the University Florida. He also served as the pathology residency program director from 1992-1996 and 1998-2004. In addition to his current duties as a staff clinical chemist, he is principle investigator for the NIH-funded Type 1 Diabetes TrialNet Islet Cell Autoantibody Core Laboratory and the NIH-funded Islet Autoantibody Standardization Program (IASP). Dr. Winter directs the Endocrine Autoantibody Laboratory that is part of the University of Florida Health Pathology Laboratories (UFHPL). Dr. Winter's specialties are clinical chemistry and pediatric endocrinology. He teaches in the basic science and clinical science curricula of the UF College of Medicine and directs the pathology course for UF dental students.A native of San Francisco, Dr. Winter attended Santa Clara University as an undergraduate majoring in chemistry.
