Common Endocrine Diseases:

Thyroid Disease (Hypothyroidism, Hyperthyroidism, Thyroid Problems during Pregnancy)-
Thyroid Disease encompasses various conditions affecting the thyroid gland's function. Hypothyroidism results from an underactive thyroid, causing fatigue, weight gain, and cold intolerance. Hyperthyroidism, an overactive thyroid, leads to weight loss, irritability, and rapid heartbeat. Thyroid problems during pregnancy can affect both mother and baby, potentially causing complications like gestational hypertension and developmental issues. Prompt diagnosis and treatment are vital for managing these conditions effectively.

Diabetes (Type-1 and Type-2 Diabetes, Secondary Diabetes andGestational Diabetes Mellitus)-
Diabetes is a chronic metabolic disorder characterized by high blood sugar levels. Type 1 diabetes results from the immune system attacking insulin-producing cells, requiring lifelong insulin therapy. Type 2 diabetes is due to insulin resistance and lifestyle factors. Secondary diabetes arises from underlying conditions or medications. Gestational Diabetes Mellitusrequires meticulous control of blood glucose throughout pregnancy to prevent complications in both mother & baby. Regular monitoring, a balanced diet, and exercise are crucial in diabetes management.

Osteoporosis and Metabolic Bone Disease-
Osteoporosis leads to weakened bones and increased fracture risk, affecting millions worldwide. Recurrent fractures pose severe health concerns, warranting preventive measures and calcium-rich diets. Hyperparathyroidism disrupts calcium regulation, demanding timely medical attention and potential surgical intervention.

Pituitary disease, Pituitary Tumors andHypopituitarism-
Pituitary disease, including tumors, can cause hormonal imbalances with far-reaching effects. Growth hormone deficiency stunts growth in children, while hypopituitarism impacts overall hormone production. Early detection, targeted treatments, and hormonal replacement therapy are essential in managing pituitary disorders.

Adrenal disease, Adrenal Tumors-
Adrenal diseases, like adrenal tumors, disrupt hormone production and metabolism. Addison’s disease due to adrenal hormone deficiency can be a life-threatening disease. Identifying and managing these conditions are crucial to maintain hormonal balance and overall health. Treatment options include medication or surgical removal of tumors, tailored to individual patient needs.

Pediatric Endocrinology (Childhood Obesity, Delayed/Early Sexual development in Children, Short Stature)-
Pediatric Endocrinology addresses crucial childhood concerns, including obesity, early or delayed sexual development, and short stature. Comprehensive assessments and personalized interventions are vital in tackling these issues, promoting healthy growth and development in children.

Disorders of Water and Sodium Balance-

Disorders of water and sodium balance can lead to serious complications, like dehydration or electrolyte imbalances. Identifying the underlying cause and appropriate treatments are essential for restoring balance and ensuring optimal kidney function.

Disorders of Male and Female Hormones (male & female sexual dysfunction, infertility)-
Disorders of male and female hormones, such as sexual dysfunction, infertility and PCOS impact overall well-being and reproductive health. Holistic evaluations and targeted therapies at the nutrition and dietetics department in hospitalhelp address these concerns, enhancing quality of life and fostering family planning options.
