The department of general medicine at viswas Hospitals is privileged by a group of people owing to the fact that is a complete one-stop-solution.
General Medicine is the medical specialty dealing with the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of adult diseases. Physicians specializing in internal medicine are called internists, or physicians in Commonwealth nations. Internists are skilled in the management of patients who have undifferentiated or multi-system disease processes. Internists care for hospitalized and ambulatory patients and may play a major role in teaching and research.
Because internal medicine patients are often seriously ill or require complex investigations, internists do much of their work in hospitals. Internists often have subspecialty interests in diseases affecting particular organs or organ systems.
General medicine is also a specialty within clinical pharmacy and veterinary medicine. Here we will find the causes, symptoms, diagnosis and treatment of a huge range of disorders affecting every part of the body. We find the root causes and help you to cure the diseases.
Our department of general medicine provides the treatment for:
Fever is an elevation in body temperature or a high body temperature. Technically, any body temperature above the normal oral measurement of 98.6 Fahrenheit (37 Celsius) or the normal rectal temperature of 99 F (37.2 C) is considered elevated.Infections affecting different organs of the body
Infection is the invasion of an organism's body tissues by disease-causing agents, their multiplication, and the reaction of host tissues to the infectious agents and the toxins they produce. Infectious disease, also known as transmissible disease or communicable disease, is illness resulting from an infection.All metabolic diseases and endocrine diseases
Endocrine disorders involve the body’s over- or under-production of certain hormones, while metabolic disorders affect the body’s ability to process certain nutrients and vitamins. Endocrine disorders include hypothyroidism, congenital adrenal hyperplasia, diseases of the parathyroid gland, diabetes mellitus, diseases of the adrenal glands (including Cushing’s syndrome and Addison’s disease), and ovarian dysfunction (including polycystic ovary syndrome), among others. Some examples of metabolic disorders include cystic fibrosis, phenylketonuria (PKU), hyperlipidemia, gout, and rickets. The endocrine system is a network of glands that produce and release hormones that help control many important body functions, including the body's ability to change calories into energy that powers cells and organs.Blood pressure (BP)
Blood pressure (BP) is the pressure of circulating blood on the walls of blood vessels. When used without further specification, "blood pressure" usually refers to the pressure in large arteries of the systemic circulation. Blood pressure is usually expressed in terms of the systolic pressure (maximum during one heart beat) over diastolic pressure (minimum in between two heart beats) and is measured in millimeters of mercury (mmHg), above the surrounding atmospheric pressure.Infectious diseases
Infectious diseases are disorders caused by organisms — such as bacteria, viruses, fungi or
parasites. Many organisms live in and on our bodies. They're normally harmless or even helpful, but under certain conditions, some
organisms may cause disease.
Some infectious diseases can be passed from person to person. Some are transmitted by bites from insects or animals. And others are acquired by ingesting contaminated food or water or being exposed to organisms in the environment.
Respiratory disease is a medical term that encompasses pathological conditions affecting the organs and tissues that make gas exchange possible in higher organisms, and includes conditions of the upper respiratory tract, trachea, bronchi, bronchioles, alveoli, pleura and pleural cavity, and the nerves and muscles of breathing. Respiratory diseases range from mild and self-limiting, such as the common cold, to life-threatening entities like bacterial pneumonia, pulmonary embolism, acute asthma and lung cancer.Stomach aches, infections like vomiting, diarrhea and jaundice
A stomach ache, including stomach cramps or abdominal pain, doesn't usually last long and isn't
usually caused by anything serious.
Some common causes of a stomach ache include:
• trapped wind (flatulence)
• pain or discomfort after eating (indigestion)
Low back pain is very common and becomes more common as people age, affecting more than half of people over 60. It is one of the most common reasons for health care visits. Low back pain is very costly in terms of health care payments, disability payments, and missed work. However, the number of back injuries in the workplace is decreasing, because of people awareness over the problem and preventive measures have improved.Problems like headache, muscular weakness, epilepsy
Epilepsy is a condition that causes seizures — temporary glitches in the brain’s electrical
activity. These electrical disruptions can cause a range of symptoms. Some people stare off into space, some make jerky movements,
while others lose consciousness.
Epilepsy may stem from changes in the brain’s development, wiring, or chemicals. Doctors don’t know exactly what causes it, but it can start after an illness or damage to the brain. The disease disrupts the activity of brain cells called neurons, which normally transmit messages in the form of electrical impulses. An interruption in these impulses leads to seizures.
