The department of Endocrinology at PSG Hospitals, which deals with the diagnosis and treatment of diseases related to hormones, including hypertension or high blood pressure, diabetes and high cholesterol, started functioning from February 16, 2013. At the time of its inception, it had four staff members including an assistant professor and two diabetes educators.

The department offers a comprehensive diabetic care facility under the able guidance of its head Dr R. Senthilkumar. The department now offers thyroid, obesity and pituitary clinics.

According to Dr Senthilkumar, endocrinologists strongly believe in “Ahimsa” and hence they desist from doing any invasive procedure. Within this short period, it has been able to attract about 50 to 60 outpatients per day, which is a proof of its excellent care.

The department in addition has also completed studies related to sleep duration and blood glucose values and this has been sent for publication. The establishment of a dedicated paediatric endocrine clinic and insulin pump clinic is planned for in the near future.
