The department of Endocrinology is skilled in diagnosing and treating patients with diabetes. Diabetes Mellitus is a condition in which the blood glucose of a person's body go beyond normal levels. Diabetes Mellitus can be of three types: Type 1 diabetes, Type 2 diabetes and gestational diabetes. There are some other forms of diabetes which are less prevelant including cystic fibrosis-related diabetes and monogenic diabetes. In type 1 diabetes the patient's body stops making insulin completely. In type 2 diabetes the patient's body does not generate insulin or does not utilize the body insulin well. Gestational diabetes occurs in pregnant women and mostly, diminishes after the childbirth. There is a huge possibility of developing type 2 diabetes in the later stage if a woman has had gestational diabetes before.
