ENDOCRINOLOGY

MEDICAL SPECIALTY

Endocrinology is the study of the endocrine glands which function in secretion of hormones into the blood. Endocrine glands is a network of glands existing in various parts of the body that function by directly secreting hormones into the blood.

Endocrine glands are ductless in nature, and play a vital role in maintaining the entire body metabolism. These glands include the thyroid gland, ovaries, testes, adrenal glands and the pancreas.

Patients with thyroid disorders including goiter, thyroiditis and thyroid tumors are treated with utmost care and precision.

With a team of highly qualified and experienced endocrinologists, we are able to manage the diseases that include the following:

Endocrine pancreas conditions including Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes mellitus

Diabetes is a chronic disease that arises either when the pancreas is unable to make insulin or when the insulin produced in the body is insufficient to meet the body needs. Type 1 diabetes arises due to autoimmune response when the body’s defense mechanisms target the pancreas cells which are involved in producing insulin. The causes of type 1 diabetes are either linked to genetic changes, or defective beta cells in the pancreas that produce insulin. People with type 1 diabetes are dependent on insulin injections to maintain their blood glucose levels. Type 2 diabetes arises when the insulin produced by the pancreas is either insufficient to fulfill the metabolic needs, or the body cells (primarily in the liver, fat and muscle cells) show resistance to the insulin hormone.

Hyperlipidemia, in other words, is called high cholesterol, arises when excessive fats start depositing in the blood. Cholesterol, by nature is fat and plays critical role in body’s cells. But, when excess cholesterol starts accumulating inside arteries, it becomes a major cause of cardiovascular disease.

type 2 diabetes

Hypertension also referred to as high blood pressure, has been linked to many reasons such as obesity, smoking/alcohol habit, excessive salt consumption or unhealthy food etc. With soaring rise in blood pressure, the blood vessels in eyes, kidneys, and brain become stressed and may lead to serious consequences such as heart disease, strokes, kidney impairment and even heart failure.

Pituitary gland is termed as the ‘master control gland’ as it makes hormones that affect growth and other serious implications. The most common pituitary disorder is the pituitary gland tumor, which may lead to hypersecretion (excessive secretion of hormones), hyposecretion (little or no secretion of hormone leading to harmful changes in the body) or tumor mass effect i.e. the weight of the tumor pushes against the pituitary gland and other brain regions causing vision problems and persistent headaches.

thyroid

The thyroid gland is a major regulator of the body metabolism. Hence, stressful lifestyle and unhealthy eating habits may lead to irregular hormone production and hyperthyroidism or hypothyroidism.

type 2 diabetes

The adrenal glands are located on top of each kidney, and play a vital role in releasing hormones. Excessive or very less hormone production is the major consequence of adrenal disorders. Cushing’s syndrome, Addison’s disease, Congenital Adrenal Hyperplasia (CAH) are some of the diseases, which Dr. Sulaiman Al Habib hospital Dubai with experienced doctors helps the patients to manage and live a healthy, carefree life.

type 2 diabetes

The testicles constitute the male reproductive organ system. Many conditions such as testicular cancer, hypogonadism have been well- managed at Dr. Sulaiman Al Habib hospital Dubai and patients have recovered well. Considering the age and other essential factors, our doctors decide which therapy to choose for a patient.

Obesity in people leads to many comorbid conditions such as hypertension, insulin resistance, gall bladder disease, stroke, osteoarthritis and cardiovascular disease. Considering the rise of obesity in the world population, the doctors at Dr. Sulaiman Al Habib hospital Dubai are striving hard to help patients of all ages choose healthy food options, adopt exercise and reduce overall BMI.
