Obesity

Obesity

Very common in most countries; more than 10 million cases reported annually in India.  Generally defined as increased fat mass, with body massage index (weight in kg / height in meters squared) of over 30 kg/m2.  Causes: excessive food intake with lack of exercise, genetics, Metabolic disorders.  Prevention: societal changes, personal choices, including diet, exercise, medications, surgery.

Diabetes

Diabetes

One of the most common metabolic disorders affecting patients worldwide, with the highest incidence in India.  Westernization of diet, improper education, fast food culture and lack of activities are some reasons for the explosive growth in incidence.  We offer astute guidance in diagnosis, investigation and offer comprehensive care to ensure that the patient is treated as a whole and is benefited.  F meragmentation of care is going to be a ‘thing of the past’  here.

Endocrinology

Endocrinology

the branch of physiology and medicine concerned with endocrine glands and hormones. Endocrinologists are specially trained physicians who diagnose diseases related to the glands. Diseases they are trained to treat after effect other parts in body beyond gland available Period some of the diseases that are treated by Endocrinologists include adrenal disorders, osteoporosis and bone health, diabetes, heart problems (high cholesterol, triglycerides, high blood pressure) Men’s Health (infertility, testosterone levels) pituitary disorders, thyroid disorders, weight and metabolism, women’s health (Menopause, infertility and menstrual problems).

Thyroid

Thyroid

A very important gland situated in the middle of the neck, which is controlling the day to day activities of every cell, from head to toe.  Very commonly misunderstood and misdiagnosed by physicians and often referred for surgery unnecessarily.  Several dysfunctions exist in patients which are mostly benign and easy to diagnose and treat.

hypo

Hypothyroidism

Hypothyroidism – (underactive) often masquerading as fatigue, leg cramps with or without out enlarged gland (also known as goiter). Caused by genetics, inflammation or exposure to radiation.  Commonly known as Hashimotos thyroiditis.  Diagnosis is by classic presentation and thyroid function testing.  Benign condition which is easy to treat. Extremely rare to need surgery.

hyper

Hyperthyroidism

Hyperthyroidism – (overactive) produces distressing symptoms, of sudden weight loss, diarrhea, increased sweating, tremors, vision change, joint pain etc. Caused by antibodies, inflammation. Commonly known as Grave’s disease, especially if goiter and eye symptoms present together. Diagnosis is by classic features and diagnostic studies including blood test and thyroid scan. Benign condition which is again easy to treat. Again, rare situation may mandate surgery.

nodule

Thyroid Nodules

Thyroid nodules – may or may not accompany Hashimotos thyroiditis. Usually benign, often studied by fine needle biopsy. Those that are fast growing, producing pressure effect or has a malignant cytology need removal. Incidence of cancer is thankfully very low and survival is excellent.

hypertension

Hypertension

Hypertension – often linked to accelerated ageing induced by Diabetes and obesity.  Needs monitoring and investigation into rare causes including adrenal tumors.  Easy to treat and control.  There’s a false sense of security provided by some physicians who believe it’s ‘okay’ to have a little blood pressure when you get older.  You can get a little ‘stroke’ or a heart attack, certainly that’s not ‘okay’ for me.

cardio

Cardiac

Diabetes is known as a vascular disease because most of the pathology that relates to comorbidities in blood vessels as well as in the heart. Cardiologists see some significant damage to coronary arteries as well as in peripheral arteries mostly because of accelerated aging that is an accompaniment in diabetes. We focus on treating diabetes in a multifaceted approach so that these comorbidities are controlled to the maximum and patient suffering is reduced. Medications must be selected and adjusted as to provide good blood pressure control as well as optimization of lipids. Dietary education must be provided to coordinate these goals as well.

hormonal

Hormonal

Hormones – the essence of Endocrinology.  Male and female hormonal dysfunction exist in varying proportions with various manifestation. Easy to diagnose and treat if see the right expert.  Several physicians claim to be experts, ranging from general physicians and surgeons to gynecologists and urologists.  You can get under treated or over treated depending on the level of experience.  There’s often overlap syndromes that can cause material damage to other systems like vascular bed and liver.

polycystic

Polycystic

Polycystic ovaries – a very common condition which has increased lately thanks to the fast food culture and blossoming obesity trends, although thin women can also develop this condition. Essentially there’s reversal of male and female hormonal ratios, and the ovaries cannot release eggs, resulting in cyst formation each menstrual cycle. Irregular menses results with infertility and hair growth disturbances. Easy to diagnose and treat, with satisfactory response in patient symptoms.

hair_loss

Hair Loss

Hair loss (alopecia) and excessive hair growth (hirsutism) –
A very common symptom complex producing variable amount of distress to the patient and families. Causes could be Metabolic, genetic, stress related or a combination of the three. Diagnosis and treatment is available, but response to treatment is often slow.

we are the first clinic in India to focus on endocrinology, run by an Endocrinologist trained at Switzerland and USA.
