They are:

- C-Reactive Protein Test: This test is done to check the level of C-reactive protein as it increases when there’s an inflammation in the body. This is also done to evaluate coronary artery disease or narrowing of the arteries of the heart that can lead to a heart attack.

The medical treatments which we diagnosis and treat in our hospital are as follows
- Acute respiratory infection: This involves the upper respiratory or lower respiratory tract, which causes these infections. All the symptoms depend on the system, which is affected. We are amongst the best hospitals for the treatment of respiratory disorders in Mumbai.
- Asthma: Being one of the best hospitals for the treatment for asthma in Mumbai, we provide all the necessary treatment for it. In people with asthma, the airways are inflamed and are sensitive to allergens or infections. When an asthma attack occurs, the airways get narrower and fewer air flows to the lungs, which causes symptoms like wheezing, chest tightness, coughing, and difficulty breathing.
- Chest pain: Severe, sudden chest pain- especially when it comes along a severe pain in the left arm, along with sweating and severe breathlessness, requires immediate medical attention as it may be a heart attack. Other causes of chest pain may be pneumonia, asthma, bronchitis, gastritis, etc.
- Diabetes: This is a disease that is marked by high blood sugar levels. The blood sugar levels are monitored by a hormone called insulin. Diabetes occurs when there is resistance to insulin, too little insulin, or both. The treatment depends on the type of diabetes, which can be injecting insulin, drugs to increase the production of insulin, make insulin more effective or slow absorption of glucose. Being one of the best hospitals for the treatment of type II diabetes in Mumbai, we also recommend some lifestyle like dietary changes, weight loss, etc.
- High blood cholesterol and triglycerides: These two are lipid disorders in the blood, which carries the excess fatty acids. These lipid disorders increase the chances of heart attack and strokes. Treatment for this involves low-fat diet, exercise, and weight loss. Being among the best hospital for the treatment of high cholesterol in Mumbai, the medication may also be prescribed to reduce LDL cholesterol and increase HDL cholesterol.
- Hypertension: This can be defined as systolic blood pressure, which is over 140hg and diastolic blood pressure, which is below 90hg. This does not have any symptoms, but it is necessary to treat; if not, it can lead to heart attack, stroke, kidney disease, etc.
- Hypothyroidism: Being one of the best hospitals for the treatment of hypothyroidism in Mumbai, we give out the best medications for it. This is an underactive gland. This gland regulates the body’s energy through thyroid hormones called T3 and T4. And when these glands do not produce enough of these hormones, the body’s metabolism slows down. This can lead to weight gain, forgetfulness, tiredness, etc. this can be treated through medications.
- Influenza: This is a contagious disease that is caused by a virus. This can lead to a sore throat, runny or stuffy nose, fever, headache, dry cough, tiredness, etc. Complications of this flu can be severe, like pneumonia, dehydration, and worsening of the chronic medical conditions. The treatment of this flu is to get vaccinated during the fall. We are among the best hospitals for the treatment of influenza in Mumbai, where one can get checked-up and vaccinated.
- Migraine: It causes a severe and disabling headache. Sometimes migraine gives an alarming sign such as flashes of light or blind spot. In addition to intense pain, migraines are also known to cause vomiting, extreme sensitivity to light and sound, and nausea. There is no treatment for migraines as such, but the severity and frequency can be reduced with medication.
- Pneumonia: It is caused due to inflammation of the lungs by infection of bacteria, viruses, or other organisms. Pneumonia is most likely to occur when upper respiratory infections or influenza weaken a person's defenses. Symptoms for pneumonia are fever, cough, chills, chest pain, shortness of breath, and shallow breathing. Pneumococcal vaccine prevents the most common type of pneumonia, which is recommended for the people who are aged 65 and above who are most vulnerable to pneumonia. We, being one of the best hospitals for the treatment of pneumonia in Mumbai, provide these vaccines, which will help you in the process of treatment.
- Osteoarthritis: This is a joint disease that affects the cartilage, a shock-absorbing tissue that is found at the end of the joint. In this disease, some of the bones are broken or worn away, which allows the bone to rub together. This results in swelling, pain, and loss of motion. The treatment of this is exercise, weight loss, rest, and medication for pain and inflammation. We will provide all the medicines and treatments for this disease.
- Osteoporosis: This disease causes loss of bone density and thinning of bone tissue, which causes fragile bones and an increased risk of fracture. This is more common in women, and it also increases after menopause when the oestrogen levels drop.
