Endocrine Disorders During Pregnancy

by Sarita Bajaj, Rajesh Rajput, Jubbin J Jacob

This book, Endocrine Disorders During Pregnancy, deals with various endocrine disorders during pregnancy. The burden of endocrine disorders during pregnancy is enormous whether one considers or not considers the magnitude of the population afflicted, the impact on the lives of affected women, the rendered morbidity and the economic toll taken by it. Generally, the healthcare system fails to adequately meet the needs of patients with chronic diseases, in general and endocrine diseases, in particular. Referrals of patients to endocrinologists are infrequent; and there are not sufficient specialists to cure these diseases. This edition has a total of 15 chapters, including endocrine physiology and iodine nutrition in normal pregnancy. All endocrine glands-related disorders in relation to pregnancy are covered. Polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) & pregnancy, obesity & pregnancy and endocrinology of hyperemesis gravidarum have been discussed in detail.
