Beautifully presented, and now in full colour, the sixth edition of Essential Endocrinology and Diabetes is fully up-to-date with the latest knowledge and concepts on the workings of the endocrine system. It explains the key principles of endocrine physiology in an easy reading style popular with students, clinicians and scientists. The invaluable background on basic science and investigation, including new molecular techniques, provides the foundation for detailed discussion of the diagnosis and management of clinical endocrine disorders and diabetes.

The teaching style and presentation has been strengthened throughout, and includes learning objectives and “recap” links at the beginning of each chapter that remind the reader of key findings and principles, while cross-referencing makes it easy to locate related information quickly and efficiently. There are also more case studies, with detailed answers applying theory to practice.

Essential Endocrinology and Diabetes is the perfect resource for a course on endocrinology and diabetes, as part of USMLE teaching, and an on-going companion during postgraduate clinical and scientific study. It is accompanied by a FREE enhanced Wiley Desktop Edition - the interactive, digital version of the book - featuring downloadable text and images, highlighting and note taking facilities, book-marking, cross-referencing, in-text searching, and linking to references and glossary terms.
