Endocrinology is the field of medicine that deals with the diagnosis and treatment of diseases related to hormones. The study of endocrinology includes the study and treatment of everyday human functions such metabolism, respiration, reproduction, sensory perception, and movement of body parts. Endocrinology lays a lot of emphasis on the endocrine glands and tissues that secrete hormones.
The endocrine system is one of the most important internal systems in the human body. The endocrine system helps produce many hormones that work throughout the body round the clock, helping in the smooth functioning of the various processes that go on within our body, whether we are awake or asleep.
An endocrinologist is a trained medical professional whose primary responsibilities revolve around studying, monitoring and the treatment of the endocrine system in the human body. Endocrinologists are trained to identify and treatment of glands in our body. These glands release hormones. If there is an imbalance in our hormones, it might lead to a number of serious illnesses such as diabetes, thyroid-related ailments, cholesterol related issues, and hypertension and infertility.
Paediatric endocrinologists are specially trained doctors whose work revolves around the proper functioning of the glands of children. Children are in the grown phase of life and have to deal with many ‘growing’ issues like puberty, diabetes, and general growth of the body.
The growth of your child can be monitored through basics such as height and weight monitoring. However, hormonal imbalances take some time to show on the body, since they are all internal.
Ankura Children’s Hospital has a team of highly skilled and qualified endocrinologists who specialise in treating children. Endocrinology majorly deals with growing children, and we understand that treating growing children also entails dealing with their own unique demands, fears and mood-swings.
Our team of doctors put a smile at the heart of their treatments, combining their high levels of skills with more basic human traits of empathy and kindness. Our Pediatric Endocrinology Department has successfully brought smiles to the faces of a number of parents and children since the setting up of our first state-of-the-art centre back in the year 2011.
Over the years, Ankura Children’s Hospital has made endocrinology one of our central departments, and takes great pride in our team of highly skilled doctors, efficient and hard-working nursing staff, and our timely and diligent support staff.
So, while you deal with the issues of bringing up your child and dealing with his/her ‘growing up’ issues, let us handle any complications when it comes to endocrinology. For us at Ankura Children’s Hospital, nothing is more precious than a child and parents walking out with a smile on their faces.
That is our greatest reward, worth more than anything else!
