Cardiology


 

Dept of Cardio-Diabetology

 

 

Diabetes mellitus is a chronic progressive metabolic disease which involves myocardium at relatively early stage even before clinical manifestations become obvious. It is associated with a multitude of cardiovascular complications like... increased incidence of atherosclerotic coronary artery disease (M.I), congestive heart failure, systemic arterial hypertension, cardiomyopathy, PVD...etc

Department of Cardio-Diabetology at Karnataka Institution of Endocrinology and Research (KIER) is been working since the inception in screening diabetic patients for early recognition of subclinical ischemic disease and stratification of risk factors and then select and start therapeutic interventions so to reduce the complications of cardiac events in these diabetic patients.

 We emphasize a close collaboration between not the clinical endocrinologist-diabetologist and interventional Cardiologist but encompasses multi disciplinary treatment experts including nephrologists, nutrition experts , Podiatrists, ophthalmologists and primary care physicians  so that we can ultimately reduce risks as primary prevention or delay of chronic complications or  to treat the  ASCVD consequences to ultimately improve patient outcomes, quality of life and longevity in person with Diabetes..

In all patients with diabetes, cardiovascular risk factors will be systematically assessed annually or early if symptomatic…

 

Facilities at Dept of Cardio-Diabetology

  1. ELECTROCARDIOGRAPHY(ECG):
  2.  2D ECHO CARDIOGRAPHY: Echocardiography is a valuable method for diagnosis, risk stratification and prognosis of CAD. This technique has the advantages of wide availability, safety and low cost, provides information on left ventricular function, LV diastolic dysfunction, valve morphology, hemodynamic across the valve and also the presence, location and extension of wall motion abnormalities.
  3. TREATMILL TESTING: At present patients are referred to Jayadeva Hospital Treadmill testing (TMT) is a useful and relatively a safe and non-invasive test for diagnosis of subclinical or latent ischemia
