Advances in Metabolic Disorders, Volume 6 covers the developments in the study of metabolic disorders. The book discusses the role of the skin in carbohydrate metabolism; the transmission of Alloxan diabetes and other diabetogenic influences; and the association between glucagon levels and diabetes mellitus. The text also describes the recent contributions to the study of diabetic angiopathy and neuropathy; the disorders due to enzyme defects in the red blood cell; and the pineal gland as a neuroendocrine inducer. The basic aspects of the biology and physiology of calcitonin in relation to its hitherto acknowledged significance in clinical metabolic disorders are also considered. Endocrinologists, biochemists, pharmacologists, physicians, physiologists and medical students will find the book invaluable.
