In recent years, the clinical evolution of thyroid diseases has been studied exhaustively as new discoveries have been made about thyroid malfunction and the effective management of patients. Thyroid Diseases presents a comprehensive exposition of a range of disorders caused by thyroid dysfunction. With contributions by well-known experts in the field, the book is the first compendium in several decades to assemble a vast amount of data and research into one volume.
Following a methodological format, each chapter explores a different malady or condition. After defining the dysfunction or disease, the text presents the epidemiology, etiopathogenesis, clinical features, first and second level tests for diagnosis, first and second line therapies, prognosis, and recommendations for follow-up.
Highlighted topics include:
Transient forms of hyper- and hypothyroidism
Subclinical hyper- and hypothyroidism
Thyroid dysfunction during gestation and postpartum
The influence of iodine on the thyroid during pregnancy
The importance of drugs that modify thyroid function
Thyroid disrupters that affect thyroid homeostasis
The bimodal and/or transient development of some thyroid diseases
The evolution of diagnosis, priorities of therapies, and lifelong monitoring of patients
All of the contributors to this text pursued long periods of training in elite research laboratories. They are active investigators and well known in the international arena. The information presented in this volume is invaluable for practicing clinicians and those training in internal medicine, endocrinology, surgery, and other areas of medicine.
