The prevalence of thyroid disorders is increasing day by day. However, many of these still go unrecognized or are not managed appropriately due to the lack of knowledge and awareness among the physicians and the treating doctors. This has been the driving force behind the conception of our book “Principles and Practices of Thyroid Gland Disorders”. Although there have been many books on thyroid disorders in the past, there has always been a need for a concise handbook of practical utility. Through this book, it has been our endeavor to consolidate the various aspects related to the thyroid including, but not restricted to, the physiology, various aspects related to thyroid function tests, hypothyroidism, hyperthyroidism, thyroid nodules and malignancies, and drugs affecting thyroid function. The chapters have been contributed by some of the eminent endocrinologists of the country, and include their own clinical experience.
