Module 6. Disorders of Thyroid Functioning
This module delves into the disorders that result from a failure of the thyroid gland to function properly. Each disorder has been explained thoroughly giving emphasis upon the signs and symptoms, investigations and management.
Module 7. Fundamentals of Parathyroids
This module explains the basic anatomy and physiology of the parathyroid glands. Simultaneously, it talks about the basic pathology that leads to a disordered functioning of the parathyroids.
Module 8. Parathyroid Dysfunction: Presenting Problems
This module talks about the various problems that a patient presents with, when he is suffering from dysfunctional parathyroid glands. In the end the module also gives one disorder of the parathyroid glands that is primary hyperparathyroidism.
Module 9 Disorders of the Parathyroids
This module gives you an insight into the various disorders of the parathyroid glands. Each disorder has been dealt with in depth emphasizing upon its aetiology, clinical presentation, investigations required and the management strategies of each one of them.
Module 10. Fundamentals of the Reproductive System

Module 11 . Reproductive System: Presenting Complaints
This module explores the various presenting problems encountered in cases of dysfunction of the reproductive glands in both males and females.
Module 12. Disorders of the Reproductive System
This module explains several disorders of the reproductive system which arise from dysfunctional endocrine glands. Each disorder has been explained with respect to its aetiology, clinical presentation, investigations and management.
Module 13. Fundamentals of the Adrenal Glands
This module deals with the basic anatomy and physiology of the adrenals. It also highlights the role of adrenals in different diseases.
Module 14. Presenting Problems in Adrenal Dysfunction
This module elaborates upon the various presenting problems and complaints that a patient shows up with when he has an underlying adrenal gland dysfunction. Each presenting complaint has been thoroughly explained focusing on its aetiology, clinical presentation, investigations and management.
Module 15. Disorders of the Adrenals
This module deals with the disorders of the adrenal glands. The disorders dealt with in this module have been thoroughly explained laying emphasis on their aetiology, clinical presentation, investigations and management.
Module 16. Fundamentals of the Endocrine Pancreas
The module explains the basic anatomy and physiology of the pancreas as an endocrine gland. Pancreas is both endocrine and exocrine in function and the module explains its role in the gastrointestinal system as well as in metabolism of carbohydrates, fats and other nutrients.
Module 17. Pancreatic Dysfunction: Presenting Problems
This module deals with the various presenting problems that are seen in a patient who suffers from dysfunction of the endocrine pancreas.
Module 18. Gastroenteropancreatic Neuroendocrine Tumors
This module talks about various neuroendocrine tumors that originate from neuroendocrine cells in different organs. Each tumor has been dealt with giving emphasis on its aetiology, clinical presentation, diagnosis and management.
Module 19. Multiple Endocrine Gland Involvement
This module explores those diseases where multiple endocrine glands are involved. Emphasis has been laid on the role of autoimmunity, genetics and other factors that lead to such disorders and simultaneously, each disorder has been explained thoroughly with respect to its clinical presentation and management.
Module 20. Clinical Examination in Endocrine Dysfunction
This module explains the clinical aspect of endocrine dysfunction. It explains the learner how to conduct the clinical examination of a patient in whom a disorder is suspected.
Module 21A. Homeopathic Therapeutics in Endocrine diseases
This module takes the Homeopathic approach to different endocrine diseases. It gives a list of Homeopathic remedies for different endocrine diseases with their indications.
Module 21B. Homeopathic Therapeutics in Endocrine diseases
This module continues the previous module on Homeopathic approach to different endocrine diseases. It gives a list of Homeopathic remedies which have not been covered in the previous part for different endocrine diseases with their indications.
- Module1. Introduction To the Endocrine System
This course on Ailments of Endocrine System covers almost all diseases and disorders of different endocrine glands that form a part of the endocrine system. The subject of endocrinology is vast and complex, but a comprehensible content on each endocrine gland, its disorders, their presenting complaints, assessment etc has been prepared with the aim to make an undergraduate learner grasp each and every concept thoroughly and deeply.
A. Endocrine diseases are mostly silent until they are found accidentally. In such situations it is important for the future medical practitioners to be thorough with each and every sign and symptom which indicates some
pathology in the endocrine system.
B. Patients often neglect or find themselves uncomfortable reporting endocrinal issues. Therefore It is important to understand diseases of the endocrine system so that the learner may be able to grasp the complications of diseases of other systems in the body which occured due to some endocrine issue.
Beneficiaries: UG/PG Students
A. The course deals with the most important endocrine diseases covered in a way that the learner will be able to relate them with normal physiology and understand the deviation from normal which led to the development of the given disease.
B. Each module has been incorporated with the latest advancements and researches in the field of endocrine diseases to allow the learner to upgrade the conceptual knowledge as well as update himself/ herself with the latest facts and
