Produktbeschreibung

In Endocrinology of Aging, a panel of distinguished physicians critically reviews the clinical consequences of the endocrinological changes that occur with aging-in both men and women-and examine the use of hormonal therapy to reduce them. Topics range from bone disease and water balance in all older people, to androgen deficiency in aging males, gynecomastia, and menopause. The authors also discuss Type II diabetes in persons over 65, emphasizing the cognitive benefits of good glycemia control, and the interaction of nutrition and metabolism, focusing on hypocholesterolemia, obesity, the anorexia of aging, trace elements, and vitamins. The aging of the sympathetic nervous system and its impact on hypertension in the elderly is also covered. Timely and authoritative, Endocrinology of Aging offers endocrinologists, geriatricians, and primary care physicians critical insight into the endocrine problems of our rapidly growing elderly population. The valuable information here will greatly augment every physician's ability to enhance function in their aging patients by insightful application of modern treatment regimes and today's powerful new therapeutics.
