The pancreas, an organ behind the stomach, produces a hormone called Insulin. Insulin helps uptake of glucose into the cells. Once inside the cells, glucose is broken down for immediate energy, or some of it is converted to be stored for future use. When insulin is either deficient or only little compared to the needs of the body or the body can't use the insulin that is produced, it results in elevated blood glucose levels.
We offer a comprehensive evaluation for Diabetes. We monitor your blood glucose closely, help improve your HbA1c and work with you and related specialists in preventing and managing complications associated with diabetes.
We manage Insulin pumps and use Continuous Glucose Monitoring in patients with appropriate indications.
Traditionally, blood glucose is measured with a fingerstick method. This involves multiple sticks in a day and only gives a snapshot of blood glucose at that time. However, blood glucose might fluctuate and change in-between measurements.
Continuous glucose monitoring tracks your blood glucose at all times. You can better balance a day by monitoring the trends and adjusting medicines, diet, and activity. It has alarms that notify when glucose is dangerously high or low. It also tracks and saves the data, so you don't need to worry about noting the glucose levels or losing the information. The data can be downloaded by your physician to help in your care.
The thyroid gland is located in the front of the neck. It produces hormones that are important for metabolism and affects many other organ systems.
After a detailed evaluation, we will be able to develop a comprehensive management plan to achieve the best results.
For patients with nodules, we work closely with interventional radiologists who specialize in thyroid biopsies. In situations needing surgery, we work with surgeons who perform minimally invasive surgery.
We treat the following issues related to calcium and parathyroid levels:
