The complex endocrine system

The endocrine system consists of several glands which secrete hormones directly into the blood. Hormones regulate various human functions, including metabolism, growth and development, tissue-function, sleep, and mood.

MIOT’s specialists offer comprehensive, integrated treatment for thyroid, parathyroid and adrenal disorders, polycystic ovaries and menstrual irregularity, excess facial and body hair growth, lipid disorders, obesity and metabolic syndrome, resistant hypertension, osteoporosis, metabolic bone diseases, hypogonadism, erectile dysfunction, infertility, growth hormone deficiency, pituitary tumours and neuro-endocrine tumours.

Management of thyroid conditions

At the MIOT Thyroid Clinic, we routinely manage thyroid conditions like hypothyroidism, hyperthyroidism, thyroid nodule, thyroid malignancies, and congenital and juvenile hypothyroidism.

Endocrinology Care

Our endocrinologists are supported by sophisticated lab facilities for sensitive thyroid hormone assay and antibody studies. Thyroid sonography and Fine Needle Aspiration Cytology of thyroid nodules are done routinely. MIOT also has an excellent nuclear medicine facility for diagnosis.

The Department offers ablation therapy.

Our skilled surgeons handle thyroid tumours and other benign thyroid conditions.

Taking control of metabolic bone disease

The Osteoporosis and Metabolic Bone Disease Clinic at MIOT International offers comprehensive services for the evaluation and treatment of metabolic bone diseases.

The Department routinely performs Vitamin D and parathyroid hormone assays, and NTx and other parameters, pertaining to bone-mineral metabolism to accurately diagnose these diseases. The latest bone densitometry services enable early detection and effective treatment of conditions such as osteoporosis, metabolic bone disease and parathyroid disorders.

Tackling obesity and hypertension

The Department of Endocrinology tackles obesity in both adults and children by determining its cause. Its specialists work along with gastroenterologists, nutritionists and bariatric surgeons to control and manage obesity through a combination of diet restriction, daily exercise and medication. In cases of severe or morbid obesity, surgery may be recommended.

Prevalent hypertension in younger people and hypertension that is difficult to control may be caused by an enlarged adrenal gland or a small discrete tumour in the adrenal gland. This type of high BP can be completely controlled with the right medication. Often, the surgical removal of the small adrenal tumours effectively cures high BP conditions. MIOT’s advanced radiological and biochemical facilities enable specialists to determine the cause of successfully treat this kind of hypertension.

Care for paediatric endocrine disorders

The department offers treatment for an extensive range of paediatric endocrine disorders such as growth disorders, congenital hypothyroidism and delayed puberty. Disorders of the pituitary gland are treated in collaboration with neurologists.

Common endocrine problems in women such as irregular and infrequent menstrual cycles, excess facial and body hair growth, primary and secondary infertility and menopausal symptoms are also evaluated and treated.
