Endocrine Disorders Treatment

Endocrine Disorders Treatment in Hyderabad

Endocrine disorders are conditions that affect the endocrine system. The endocrine system produces hormones in the body by sending signals into the bloodstream. Hormones are essential to regulate various body processes and control appetite, breathing, growth, fluid balance, and body weight

The endocrine system has the following glands:

  • Pituitary and hypothalamus glands of the brain

  • Adrenal glands in the kidney 

  • Thyroid in the neck

  • Pancreas

  • Ovaries and testes

Endocrine disorders are most commonly seen in the pancreas, pituitary, thyroid and adrenal glands due to their improper functioning. 

The disorders include:

  • Diabetes mellitus - due to insulin hormone secreted by pancreas

  • Acromegaly - due to growth hormone secreted by pituitary gland

  • Addison’s disease - due to insufficient secretion of hormones by adrenal gland

  • Cushing’s syndrome - due to high levels of cortisol produced by adrenal gland

  • Graves’ disease - due to overactive thyroid gland

  • Hashimoto’s thyroiditis - autoimmune disease affecting thyroid gland

  • Hyperthyroidism - overactive thyroid

  • Hypothyroidism - underactive thyroid

  • Prolactinoma - hormone-secreting tumour of the pituitary gland

Each and every disorder has its own set of symptoms and signs that can affect the whole body and cause multiple organ failures- these can range from mild to very severe. 

Endocrine Disorder Treatment in Hyderabad at CARE Hospitals in India are provided on the basis of the disorder and we aim to adjust the hormonal imbalances by using steroids and medications in the form of synthetic hormones.


Signs and symptoms of the endocrine disorder can vary from the type of disorder to the degree of complications. Many symptoms are similar to one another and hence require a thorough analysis of the disorder.

After the physical examinations (to know the status of your heart rate, blood pressure, weight, and organ systems) doctors would draft your preliminary diagnosis and further conduct confirmatory diagnosis for the endocrine disorders. You’re also required to tell all about your medical and family history prior to diagnosis.

  • CT Scan- with the combination of X-ray images taken from different angles of the body will let the doctors at CARE Hospitals know the status of organs and any symptoms that would relate to an endocrine disorder.

  • Parathyroid ultrasound- the doctors will study the structure and function of the thyroid or parathyroid gland inside. It is an ultrasound technique.

  • Post-thyroidectomy ultrasound- the suspected nodal and other thyroid-related issues can be analysed with the help of Post-thyroidectomy ultrasound. It is done in the neck and gives a high resolution of the ultrasound.

  • Thyroglobulin simulation studies- it is mainly used to detect cancer and suspected nodal (if any). It is used in the thyroid region to make a final analysis of the functioning of the thyroid gland.

  • Thyroid ultrasound- the sound waves are used to provide photos of the thyroid and don’t use any ionising radiation. These are simple ultrasound techniques.

  • Ultrasound fine needle aspiration- it is a type of biopsy to detect the nodules or any other abnormalities in the thyroid gland.
