The patients are given one to one consultations to discuss and treat their problems. Dieticians take a detailed account of the dietary needs of the patients at the hospital. There are also emergency services available for endocrinological emergencies like diabetic ketoacidosis, hypoglycaemia, myxedema coma, hypoglycaemia, hypercalcaemia and hypocalcaemia, which can be controlled with the help of the hospital’s efficient ICU/ICCU facilities.
