Services Offered at Department of Diabetes and Endocrinology at BM Birla Heart Research Centre:
Major concerns and their treatment provided at the hospital includes:
Diabetes and Hypoglycemia: Diabetes is a metabolic disorder wherein insulin (responsible for the conversion of glucose into energy) secretion is hampered. This results in high blood sugar levels (hyperglycemia). In hypoglycemia, the blood sugar level is low which can be caused by diabetes treatment or other health conditions.
Insulin pump therapy is usually given to people suffering from diabetes: Type 1, Type 2, or gestational diabetes. It is a small electronic device that mimics the way the pancreas secretes insulin normally in the body.
Congenital syndromes caused by diabetes: Neonatal diabetes mellitus (a rare condition) that leads to hyperglycemia and congenital malformations and Congenital Hyperinsulinism is provided best care by the department.
Adrenal gland disorders: It includes the treatment for Addison’s disease (caused by insufficient cortisol and aldosterone hormone) and Cushing’s syndrome (high levels of cortisol for prolonged time). Laparoscopic adrenalectomy is performed in case of tumor growth.
Thyroid and Parathyroid gland disorders: Fluctuation in the thyroid hormones result in hyperthyroidism (like Graves’ disease), hypothyroidism (like Hashmito’s thyroiditis), thyroid adenomas, and thyroid cancer. Parathyroid disorders are associated with abnormal calcium levels in the blood that leads to kidney stones and brittle bones.
This unit provides daycare surgeries for thyroid disease and endoscopic surgeries.
Pituitary gland disorders: The conditions caused by overactivity or underactivity of the pituitary gland include acromegaly (excess growth hormone production), hypopituitarism, prolactinoma, and empty Sella syndrome.
Medical therapies for obesity: We offer weight-loss surgeries and also prescribe drugs to help lose weight for obese individuals. The healthcare provider provides the best treatment plan based on the patient's overall health, age, physical abilities, medical history, and past efforts to lose weight.
Medical therapies for weight management: The department holds some programs for weight management wherein the individuals are assisted in having a balanced healthy diet (with fewer calories), guided to do regular physical activity or exercises, and prescribed weight loss medications (if needed) to help maintain their body weight.
Diabetic Neuropathy: The nerve of the legs and feet tends to get damaged due to elevated blood sugar levels and result in the diabetic foot. It is a chronic complication of diabetes mellitus which can be taken care of by the Diabetic Footcare clinic.
Diabetic Retinopathy: It is another diabetes complication wherein the light-sensitive part of the eye is damaged by high blood sugar levels. It is treated by anti-VEGF injections, corticosteroids, or focal macular laser surgery.
Diabetic Nephropathy: Poorly controlled diabetes can also lead to damage of blood vessels in the kidneys.
Cardiovascular problems are one of the most common diseases associated with mortality. Lack of physical activity, modern lifestyle, unhealthy eating habits, lack of nutrition, and various other socio-economic conditions – have increased cardiovascular problems. Even though multiple medical treatments are available to treat heart issues, a pacemaker remains one of the most important advances in providing care for heart patients.
A Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement (TAVR) or Transcatheter Aortic Valve Implantation (TAVI)is a surgical method performed to repair a compromised, blocked or narrowed artery which was causing disruption in the blood and oxygen supply to the heart. This surgical procedure is recommended for patients who have higher risk or are too sick, or too old for an open heart surgery.
Heart failure is a serious condition marked by the inefficiency of the heart muscles to pump blood to different parts of the body. Also referred to as congestive heart failure, the condition can prove to be life-threatening if not addressed immediately. Such patients are often recommended to undergo a heart transplant, a surgical procedure that involves the replacement of a diseased or non-functional part of the patient’s heart with a healthy heart taken from a deceased donor.
