Katharine Owen's work focuses on the genetic aetiology of diabetes
in young adults, the characterisation of rare kinds of diabetes,
and the development of diagnostic protocols for monogenic diabetes.
She established the Young Diabetes in Oxford study, a resource of
over 1200 individuals with young-onset diabetes in the Thames
Valley. She is also a clinical consultant, leading the young adult
and monogenic diabetes services, and is Diabetes Clinical Lead for
Oxford Academic Health Science Network.
Helen Turner's main research interests are pathophysiology and management of pituitary tumours. She also runs the adult Turner's Syndrome clinic at the Oxford Centre for Diabetes, Endocrinology, and Metabolism as well as being the clinical lead for governance. She has an active interest in legal issues relevant to medical care.
John Wass is the Professor of Endocrinology at Oxford University and was Head of the Department of Endocrinology at the Oxford Centre of Diabetes, Endocrinology and Metabolism until 2012.His research interests include all pituitary tumours, especially acromegaly, adrenal disease, angiogenesis in endocrinology, and the genetics of osteoporosis and thyroid disease. He has published extensively in both books and journals and has been president of the European Federation of Endocrine Societies and
Chairman of the Society of Endocrinology. He received the Lifetime Achievement Award by the Pituitary Society in 2017, and was awarded the Distinguished Physician of the Year Award by the American
Endocrine Society in 2015.
I highly recommend this book, which is useful for subspecialty
trainees to reference in day-to-day practice when they have certain
clinical questions. Not only does the book do a great job of
concisely organizing the extensive information related to
endocrinologic disorders, but it also provides additional reading
articles and guidelines for readers looking to comprehend and
navigate the field of endocrinology.

Overall, this is an excellent, high quality and considering it is a handbook, it is quite in depth and would appeal to a wide number of healthcare professionals.

This book is a useful reference text for diabetes and endocrinology that can be used in the day-to-day workplace.

This is an excellent pocket guide for endocrine disorders. This edition has been extensively updated, providing a great resource for endocrinologists and non-endocrinologists alike.

...this is an incredible resource with immense attention to detail...it is hugely valued by SpRs. The micro-details on genetics...impact of complementary medicine...specific aspects of perinatal care...reproductive etc etc...all fantastic...this book is at the highest level...no computer login required...it's cyber-attack proof, is sitting in my work bag and likely staying there...

Review from previous edition Pleasingly the coverage in both endocrinology and diabetes is pretty comprehensive and is useful to be both junior and senior hospital staff as well as GPs. Even so, despite the excellent and good depth coverage, the book remains a portable and accessible volume. I used it in primary care both as a reference source, particularly trying to sort out a patient problem and reading for interest. Its readability and ability to get straight to the point were for me the highlights...There are also topics covered that you may not expect, for example near the end there is an excellent chapter on obesity which impacts on a great deal of everyday practice, all in all this is an excellent, well priced book which can be most useful in everyday clinical practice.
