Patient Testimonials

Recently I had a knee injury, for treatment I went to SLG Hospitals. I was hardly walking receptionists and staff members immediately responded and accompanied me to ortho Dr. B.Chakradhar Reddy. He treated me really well and explained me the problem in a very simple neat way. Radiology technicians were also very helpful and supportive. I’m well satisfied with hospitality and over all service.

FAQs

Endocrinology is a specialty of medicine that contends with diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the endocrine glands.  Specialty of endocrinology identifies the probable root cause(s) of the problem and recommends an ideal treatment solution to manage the symptoms.

The endocrine system is composed of a group of glands, such as pituitary, adrenal, pancreas and thyroid that produce and regulate various hormones. These hormones regulate crucial functions including reproduction, growth, blood pressure, and metabolism. When a gland fails to produce the required amount of a certain hormone, or produces in excess, other organs of the body are affected, resulting in diverse medical conditions, such as diabetes, cancer, hypertension, thyroid disorders, and infertility to name a few.

The symptoms of an endocrine disorder vary widely and depend on the specific gland involved. However, most people with endocrine disease complain of fatigue and weakness. Blood and urine tests to check your hormone levels can help your doctors determine if you have an endocrine disorder.

Consulting an endocrinologist becomes essential for patients who have or suspected to have the following conditions: Adrenal disorders | Cushing’s disease | Diabetes mellitus | Hyperparathyroidism | Hyperthyroidism | Obesity | Osteoporosis | Rheumatic disorders | Thyroid disorders | Multiple endocrine neoplasia | Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS)

Some of the common tests performed include: ACTH stimulation test | 24-hour urine collection test | CRH stimulation test | Fine-needle aspiration biopsy | Glucose sensor test (for diabetes) | Semen analysis | TSH blood test | Thyroid scan

The biggest risk of endocrinology consultation is a misdiagnosis of one’s exact condition. This can happen for a variety of reasons, such as incorrect test results or misleading information provided by the patient. Meanwhile, certain tests also carry risks and possible complications, which will be discussed by the endocrinologist before they are initiated.
