This fully revised edition of Clinical Biochemistry offers essential reading for today's medical student and all those who require a concise, practical introduction to this subject. Topics are clearly presented in a series of 'learning units', each covering a particular aspect of clinical biochemistry. Four sections provide a core grounding in the subject:

  • Core Biochemistry covers the bulk of routine analyses undertaken and their relevance in a clinical setting
  • Endocrinology covers the thyroid, adrenal, pituitary and gonadal function testing
  • Specialised Investigation provides an overview of less requested yet important analyses

Every 'learning unit' has been thoroughly checked and updated to reflect the latest field developments and clinical best practice and all new material is included on:

  • Myocardial infarction
  • Gastrointestinal disorders
  • Osteoporosis
  • Proteinuria
  • The diagnosis of diabetes
  • Trace metals
  • Screening tests1
  • Paediatrics
