In this lecture ´´Metabolism of P, S, Fe and Cu´´ are explained. Section one is about ´´Phosphorous´´. Educator starts this section by introducing phosphorous (P). After that role of kidneys is discussed. Then functions are reported. In the end, clinical importance is highlighted which include the elucidation of hypophosphataemia and hyperphosphataemia.
Section two is about ‘’Sulphur’’. Initially, educator gives an overview of sulphur (S) and talks about its sources. Then absorption of sulphur is explained. Subsequently, distribution is discussed. Metabolic functions are focused later on.
Section three is about ‘’Iron’’. Educator begins by talking about iron (Fe). Then information about essential iron is conveyed. Following this, storage iron comes under consideration. After that transferrin is discussed. Lastly, function of transferrin is highlighted.
Sources of Iron
