- About the Department
Endocrinology, Diabetes and Metabolism is a branch of medicine which deals with the study of hormones. Hormones are secretions from glands which act at various target sites in the body. These secretions are from ductless glands, i.e., they are poured directly into the blood, hence the name, ‘endocrine glands.’ Diabetes is one of the major branches of endocrinology.

The Endocrinology, Diabetes and Metabolism Unit at Jaslok Hospital has been functional since its inception 42 years ago. We were the first hospital in the country to set up radioimmunoassay (RIA) on a regular basis. RIA could estimate minute amount of hormones in the body. Needless to say, this technique revolutionised the field of endocrinology everywhere in the world. Since then, this department has grown from strength to strength. We have a committed group of endocrinologists, diabetologists and endocrine surgeons who are equipped to handle any endocrine problem that may arise. We also have departments of radiology and nuclear medicine which help us detect rare endocrine problems through diagnostic imaging.
