Endocrinology is a branch of medicine that concerns the study of hormones and their disorders. The endocrine system consists of several glands located in different parts of the body that secrete hormones. Endocrine disorders are a varied group of diseases that usually occur due to hypo functioning or hyperfunctioning of these glands. Diabetes, the most common endocrine disorder encountered in clinical practice, occurs due to decreased secretion of insulin, a hormonal product from the pancreas, an endocrine gland. The department of Endocrinology at Ivy Hospital is one of the leading centers in the region to provide medical and surgical expertise for the diagnosis, management, and treatment of multiple hormone-associated disorders. Our endocrinology department is a well-developed clinical program for Diabetes in both adults and pediatrics.
