Description

Thyroid Disease and Muscle Dysfunction covers the pioneering work of the author in the study of muscle dysfunction in patients with thyrotoxicosis. His contributions on this subject represent real advances in the understanding of metabolic muscle disease. This book is written to clarify the association between abnormalities of skeletal muscle and derangement of thyroid function. This book is organized into five chapters that describe the muscular abnormalities in people with hypothyroidism, explain the concepts of thyrotoxic periodic paralysis and thyrotoxic myopathy, discuss the association between thyroid disease and myasthenia gravis, and describe the changes in thyroid functions associated with miscellaneous muscle disorders.
This book will be of interest to persons dealing with studies on the relation between thyroid disease and muscle dysfunction.
