About this book

A user-friendly, pocket-sized reference for all physicians faced with endocrine care and challenges in hospitalized patients, this handbook covers the most common issues leading to an inpatient endocrine consult, providing differential diagnoses, a reasonable and practical approach to investigating and managing the condition, and advice for follow-up. Conditions discussed include thyrotoxicosis and thyroid storm, calcium disorders, osteoporosis, Cushing's syndrome, pheochromocytoma and paraganglioma, primary hyperaldosteronism, hypoglycemia in diabetic and non-diabetic patients, and endocrine issues during pregnancy, among others. Suggestions for further reading are included, providing more context for well-established clinical approaches. 
Written by experts with years of experience providing endocrinology consultations in a hospital setting, Handbook of Inpatient Endocrinology is a valuable, high-yield resource for endocrine residents and fellows, but it will be equally useful for any busy hospitalist or primary care physician when endocrinology consults are not available.

Reviews

“This book serves to highlight salient clinical points with more detailed information available on the most common endocrine presentations or complications that would be seen in an inpatient hospital setting. … The book is targeted to physicians who provide mostly inpatient consultative care; for example, endocrinology fellows, attendings, surgical and obstetrical specialists, primary care physicians, and hospitalists.” (Durany Mohammed, Doody's Book Reviews, November 13, 2020)
