Lipocrinology – the relationship between lipids and endocrine function

Sanjay Kalra, Gagan Priya


While lipids are an integral part of the endocrine clinic, the opposite is not necessarily true. The lipocrinology framework addresses this lacuna, by highlighting the similarities and multiple relationships between lipid and endocrine function. It reinforces the need to screen (clinically or biochemically) all dyslipidemic patients for endocrine disease and appropriate endocrine patients for dyslipidemia. Thus, it aims to improve clinical care for persons with lipid abnormalities as well as endocrine disease.
