Endocrine Science is a specialty in the medical field that focuses on the diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of diseases or disorders related to the endocrine system. This includes all the hormone-secreting glands and organs: Hypothalamus, Pineal Gland, Thymus, Thyroid and Parathyroid, Pancreas, Pituitary, Adrenal gland, Testis, and Ovary.
The Endocrine system functions by releasing hormones that control and coordinates the body’s metabolic processes, growth and development, energy levels, reproduction, and response to injury, stress, or trauma.
Diabetes is one of the metabolic diseases wherein there is a rise in blood sugar levels. It is caused due to less insulin (an endocrine hormone) production by the pancreas or insulin resistance which prevents the use of blood sugars for energy or their storage.
The Department of Diabetes and Endocrinology at CK Birla RBH offers comprehensive services and dedicated care for both inpatients and outpatients suffering from hormonal problems and abnormal metabolism. Some of the endocrine disorders taken into consideration includes pituitary dysfunction (leading to stature problems such as too short or too tall individuals); osteoporosis; parathyroid/calcium disorders; thyroid disorders (like hypothyroidism, hyperthyroidism, thyroid cancer, and swelling); adrenal problems; hypothalamus impairment (like excess hunger or thirst and mood swings); lipid, sodium, and potassium abnormalities; hypertension; polycystic ovarian syndrome; and sexual dysfunctions of both male and female.
The endocrinology division houses state-of-the-art facilities, equipment, and a dedicated team of health care providers such as endocrinologists, radiologists, oncologists, psychologists, physiotherapists, surgeons, nursing staff, dieticians, medical social workers, and consultants.
The department has a modern centralized laboratory that runs all the assays of hormones and metabolic parameters; the latest nuclear medicine lab that performs radiology therapy and provides radionuclide imaging; and a radiology unit with the best quality imaging facilities.
Diabetes is a very common disease which is caused when the blood glucose level of the body rises beyond acceptable levels.
