This book presents an overview on the mode of action of hormones to clinicalappearance of hormonal disorders involving lipoprotein metabolism. Thus data on molecular biology, hormone regulation of apolipoprotein synthesis, on lipoprotein receptor and enzyme induction are discussed together with the large field of oral contraceptive use, postmenopausal estragen substitution, lipid disorders in diabetes mellitus, in thyroiddysfunction, in adrenal insufficiency and in glucocorticoid application.
