This is a very cool website

Endobible arranges a database of endocrine diseases in widely searchable manner. They lead physicians through the diagnosis, work-up and treatment of most endocrine diseases. They skip diabetes, but outside of that is looks awesome. Nice reminder that endocrine is more than diabetes.

I perused the Conn's Syndrome section (primary hyperaldosteronism). The history and physical were great. The work-up was less impressive. They don't advise saline loading and they still recommend stopping ACEi and beta-blockers before performing a Aldo Renin Ratio. Good luck keeping a resistant hypertension patient from stroking while you wash all those drugs out for 4 weeks.

Overall a clever design and great resource.
