Long Description

Course Content
The subject of Metabolic Diseases is vast and complex. Attempt has been made to cover metabolic diseases in a systematic and simplified manner. The disorders have been classified into disorders of homeostasis, acid base imbalance, metabolism of biomolecules and porphyrias. A detailed module on Diabetes Mellitus has been added with an aim to cover this disorder of carbohydrate metabolism in depth because it is also a lifestyle disorder and an
extremely common ailment in today’s medical practice.


A. Metabolic Diseases, though rare may be encountered in a number of patients who appear before the physician with an apparently unrelated complaint. Thus, it is important to be well versed with metabolic diseases so as to be able to deal with them efficiently.
B. Some metabolic diseases like Diabetes Mellitus have now become lifestyle disorders and are the major cause of blindness, amputations and death due to serious complications while other metabolic diseases like Porphyrias are nearly neglected as they are rare. Since both deserve judicious handling on part of the physician, it is important to be adept at it.
