Presented as case studies, this book provides students with up to date, logical coverage of basic biochemistry with normal and abnormal aspects of physiological chemistry. Each section features case studies discussing different disorders and conditions in topics including chemistry and metabolism of carbohydrates, lipids, amino acids, proteins and nucleotides, as well as vitamins, minerals, hormones, diet and detoxification.
Each case is presented in a problem-solving approach, describing the history, clinical manifestations and laboratory findings of the disease, assisted by detailed illustrations. The final sections offer normal laboratory reference values and case studies and answers for self assessment.
• Case studies presented in problem solving approach covering history,
