The novel concept of “Lipocrinology” adds a new dimension to the fields of both lipidology and endocrinology.
Lipocrinology describes the relationship between lipid metabolism and endocrine function in health and disease.
Section 1 explores the impact of endocrine function on lipid health and the clinical utility of lipid parameters in decision-making in endocrine disorders.
Section 2 discusses the impact of adipose tissue and lipid metabolism on endocrine health, and the endocrine aspects of lipidology.
Section 3 focuses on the lipotropic effects of hormone-based therapies in various endocrine disorders including diabetes and describes the endocrine effects of lipid-lowering drugs, including recently introduced PCSK-9 inhibitors.
Written by experts in the field with wide clinical and research experience.
The book is presented in an easy-to-read format.
A must-read book for endocrinologists, lipidologists, cardiologists, internists, clinicians, and postgraduate students.
