Endocrinology & Diabetology

Endocrinology & Diabetology Overview

The endocrine system is a network of glands that secrete chemicals called hormones to help the body function properly. Hormones are substances that control activities in the body. There are different hormones that control reproduction, metabolism (chemical processes in the body that maintain life and normal functioning), growth and development. Diabetic treatment majorly controls the metabolism and blood sugar level. Our Diabetes Hospital in Coimbatore is equipped with the leading diabetic and sugar doctors to diagnose and provide the best diabetic treatment.

Organs that make up the endocrine system include the pancreas, thyroid, parathyroid, ovaries, testes, adrenals, pituitary, etc.
