Abstract

Endocrine conditions, type 2 diabetes, obesity, hypothyroidism, hypogonadism, and osteoporosis are prevalent in the geriatric population. Endocrinologist and other practitioners face challenges in the management of both new and long-standing patients with these problems. Recent clinical guidelines propose using age-adjusted targets and approaches, watchful waiting, care coordination, and addressing social support or lack thereof. The decline of physical and cognitive function, depression, polypharmacy, and quality of life are increasingly emphasized in the endocrine literature about the care of older patients. This chapter focuses on the most prevalent endocrine conditions among older adults and brings relevant geriatric principles in the context of available literature and recommendations.
