COMPLETE ANDCOMPREHENSIVE Diabetes and Endocrine Sciences

Department Of Diabetes and Endocrine Sciences

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. 

Services offered by the Department of Diabetes and Endocrinology at CK Birla RBH

  • Diabetes care: This unit runs programs to manage diabetes by assessing the family risks of having diabetes and its related problems like nephropathy, neuropathy, ischemic heart disease, and retinopathy. It also offers separate clinics for dealing with Paediatric diabetes and gestational diabetes.
  • Moreover, check-ups are provided annually for patients to check for the levels of glucose and the presence of diabetic complications. A specialized clinic has been set up with all modern equipment for diabetic foot disorder patients wherein all therapeutic and preventive aspects of the diabetic foot are available.
  • Pediatric clinic: This is a specialized unit for caring for children and teenagers with growth disorders, bone diseases, obesity, thyroid diseases, early or delayed puberty, diabetes, and any other endocrine disorders.
  • Bone clinic: This division looks into the evaluation, prevention, and treatment of metabolic bone diseases such as osteomalacia (weak bones because of Vitamin D deficiency), osteoporosis (bone thinning with age or at menopause with a high risk of fractures), and hyperthyroidism (high levels of parathyroid hormone that results in a rise in calcium levels and high risk of kidney stones and bone pain).
  • Obesity clinic: This unit works with endocrinologists, gastrointestinal surgeons, and plastic surgeons to manage obesity. The aim is to provide the ideal body weight for the patients by incorporating daily exercises, a healthy balanced diet, drug therapy, and sometimes plastic surgery and bariatric procedures to cut down stubborn fat pockets of the body. There are provisions made for hormonal assessment of obesity, preoperative body fat assessments, and post-operative follow-up assessments. 
  • Other comprehensive services: These includes Daycare surgeries for treating thyroid disease; Laparoscopic Adrenalectomy (removal of the adrenal gland); endoscopic thymectomy (resection of the thymus gland); Minimally invasive breast surgeries; Stem cell therapy for foot ulcers; and treatments for Hyperandrogenic disorders like Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome and Hirsutism.
