The Department of Internal Medicine at the CK Birla Hospital offers prevention, detection and management of a wide range of endocrine diseases. We have an interdisciplinary care team-based approach to offer you a precision-driven diagnosis and timely treatment of your individual disease.
Your endocrine system is made up of majorly eight glands including the thyroid and parathyroid gland, pituitary gland, adrenal gland, hypothalamus, pineal body, thymus, ovaries and pancreas. These glands release certain hormones that help regulate your growth, metabolism, sexual function and mood.
An endocrine disease or disorder occurs when your body does not respond to these released hormones in the way it is expected to. These diseases can be caused as a result of high or low levels of hormones.
The primary cause of the endocrine disease is hormonal imbalance in your body. Besides this, endocrine diseases can also be caused due to the development of tumours in any location or gland of the endocrine system.
Common types of endocrine diseases include:
- Cushing’s disease
- Adrenal insufficiency
- Growth hormone problems
- Polycystic ovary syndrome
Your treatment protocol will largely depend on the specific gland affected by your disease. Your doctor may order certain tests such as blood and urine tests to check your hormonal levels and determine your condition. Most endocrine diseases can be effectively treated through medicines or hormone therapy.
Very nice experience. Special thanks to Dr Abhay Ahluwalia for his help and guidance. My health has largely improved since I started consulting him at the CK Birla Hospital. Thanks to the whole team of CK Birla Hospital.
The CK Birla Hospital is the best hospital for treatment of thyroid. My mother’s problem has been completely managed and she has been much better since she started consulting the doctors here. I am very thankful to the whole team. They are all also very polite and approachable. Very nice experience. Thanks to the whole team of CK Birla Hospital.
I am grateful to the internal medicine team at the CK Birla Hospital. My health was declining and I could not find out the exact reason. The previous doctor I was consulting was also of no help. But the doctors here are amazing. They were able to diagnose my condition very quickly and started the treatment soon. I am at a better stage of health now and feel amazing. Thanks to the whole team of CK Birla Hospital.
The endocrine system is responsible for releasing hormones that help control mood, growth and development, the way our organs work, metabolism, and reproduction.
Early signs of an endocrine disease include fatigue, weakness, difficulty in sleeping and goitre.
Diabetes is the most common endocrine problem.
