The Endocrine and Metabolic Testing Manual provides a succinct, practical guide for endocrinologists, nurses, and their staffs who need to make informed endocrine diagnoses using detailed standard methods and the most cost-effective procedures. The Third Edition features 29 new tests. In addition, a new section, Indications for Test, has been generated for most of the tests described, which identifies the most commonly accepted reasons for testing. The Third Edition also includes the latest CPT codes and indicates those in which direct physician involvement is particularly important. The testing of all endocrine organ systems, diabetes-related problems, renal, lipoprotein disorders, and physical fitness is addressed and helpful algorithms are presented. The manual offers a perspective on the most useful of a wide variety of tests aimed at making an endocrine diagnosis. Health care planners are sure to appreciate the estimate of supply costs useful for reimbursement of this aspect of testing....
