Determination of Hormones and Steroids

It is important to emphasize the oxymoron that patients are bioassays of their circulating hormone concentrations. Generally, in endocrinology patients come to attention for only two reasons - because of excess hormone action or through its lack. Each has a number of possible causes. The pace of progress in endocrinology has always been dictated by the development of assays to measure the hormones. By and large, clinical endocrinology is limited to the measurement of hormone concentrations in venous serum or body fluids such as urine or saliva..
