Moving on to the topic of adrenal diseases, Professor Michael Lazarus outlines the effects of the imbalance of antidiuretic hormone (ADH), which may manifest as syndrome of inappropriate ADH secretion (SIADH) or Cushing syndrome. The anatomy and physiology of the hypothalamus and the pituitary gland will be reviewed in relation to their associated disease states. The appropriate diagnostic tests for adrenal diseases will be explained.
With the aid of case studies, you will learn how to use medical terminology accurately to describe adrenal diseases. By the end of this course, you will understand the diagnosis and treatment of different types of adrenal diseases as well as the precautions for specific treatments.
