(MENAFN - Muscat Daily) The term hypothyroidism is no more just a medical term used by doctors. It has now become a household term establishing the fact that issues pertaining to the thyroid gland are quite common nowadays. Sugar Apollo, International Medical Centre specialises in diabetes and endocrinology.

Endocrinology is a branch of medicine dealing with the pancreas, thyroid, pituitary, adrenal, male and female hormones, calcium, vitamin D and bone health as well as obesity and growth disorders. People often visit IMC complaining about hair loss and weight gain and ask for a thyroid checkup. IMC, with a mission of strengthening the healthcare infrastructure in the sultanate, can proudly boast that it is the first private hospital in Oman to appoint an endocrinologist.

Dr Binu P Pillai is a specialist endocrinologist at the International Medical Centre who is a member of many professional organisations like the Indian Thyroid Society, Endocrine Society of India, Endocrine Society of USA, American Diabetes Association and European Society of Endocrinology. He has attended many national and international meetings and presented cases in European Endocrine Society clinical update meetings.

Dr Pillai addresses diabetes, thyroid and various other hormonal disorders that are prevalent among the masses today. Hypothyroidism is a disorder in which thyroid hormones are not produced in sufficient quantity. This is a relatively common disorder especially among women. Some of the symptoms of this disorder include weight gain, tiredness, neck swelling, constipation, irregular and heavy menstrual flow, infertility, intolerance to cold, hair loss, depression and mood swing. Hyperthyroidism is a condition in which thyroid hormone is produced in excess.

The symptoms include weight loss, tremors, fast heart beat, anxiety, absent or scanty periods etc. If left untreated, thyroid disorders can lead to serious health problems including heart disorders. In Oman, hypothyroidism is quite common. Thyroid swellings and nodules are another common disorder which is prevalent in the community.

At IMC, the endocrinologist examines the patients and then conducts a thyroid function test. IMC is equipped with a high resolution ultra sound scan machine and thyroid FNAC (Fine Needle Aspiraton) facility. IMC aims to bring healthcare of international standards within the reach of every individual and to some extent cure and solve the long prevailing problem of hypothyroidism.
