Endocrine-function related diseases such as diabetes, pituitary disorders, infertility, metabolic disorders, menopause, osteoporosis, and thyroid disorders are all on the rise. Estimates now suggest that 1 in every 10 Indians suffers from thyroid disorders. At Neotia Mediplus OPD & Diagnostics Clinic, we offer comprehensive services in the diagnosis, treatment and management of endocrine disorders.
Endocrinology is the branch of medicine and physiology that relates to the endocrine system. Our endocrine system is primarily a network of glands that produce and release hormones, which help control important body functions. The endocrine system influences the body's ability to convert calories into energy, the paediatric growth of bones and tissues, even how the heart beats. When one or more of these glands don't function properly, they cause hormonal imbalances thus leading to an endocrine disorder.
The first step is to identify the signs and symptoms of endocrine diseases. Endocrine disorders have subtle symptoms and vary depending on the particular part of an endocrine system that is affected. Symptoms of some common endocrine disorders are:
At Neotia Mediplus OPD & Diagnostics Clinic, our team of expert endocrinologists provides ongoing evaluation, diagnoses and treatment for problems arising from hormone-secreting glands such as thyroid, pituitary, pancreas, ovaries, testes and adrenal glands. We also firmly believe that prevention is always better than cure and offer services designed to encourage primary prevention of endocrinology problems.
The diagnosis and treatment of endocrine disorders are led by laboratory tests. Most diseases are diagnosed through stimulation/excitation or suppression/inhibition endocrine tests. In this method, a stimulating agent is injected to test the functioning of hormones. A sample of the blood is then analysed to evaluate the changes of the important hormone or metabolites.
