"The manual will give the medical fraternity comprehensive information about the disease, which often goes undetected and undiagnosed. Nearly 1,500 textbooks would be distributed to medical colleges across India," he said.

"Obesity, depression, fatigue, high cholesterol, infertility and many other conditions are often the direct result of undiagnosed and untreated thyroid conditions," he said.
