Hypercalcemia is one of the conditions addressed in this Endocrinology basic course. We will study the responses of the endocrine system as levels of calcium change in the body. We will discuss the parathyroid gland as we review primary hyperparathyroidism and treatments for this disease.
With the aid of case studies, you will learn how to use medical terminology accurately to describe metabolic bone diseases. By the end of this course, you will understand the diagnosis and treatment of metabolic bone diseases as well as the precautions for specific treatments.
In addition to viewing our high-quality video lectures, you can access quiz questions and download study materials.

so grateful for such a good lecture on a difficult topic. Very clear summary and helpful hints. Good summary.
All the important stuff covered without going too in-depth and overcomplicating it.
ery good and didactic lecture. Would expect a little more discussion of pathophysiology
firstly the reasoning was very vague and not explained well with a quick physiology reference secondly hungry bone syndrome described as surgery for hypoparathyroidectomy . Hungry bone syndrome (HBS) refers to the rapid, profound, and prolonged hypocalcaemia associated with hypophosphataemia and hypomagnesaemia, and is exacerbated by suppressed parathyroid hormone (PTH) levels, which follows parathyroidectomy in patients with severe primary hyperparathyroidism (PHPT) and preoperative high bone turnover.
