What is General Medicine?
General Medicine, also referred to as Internal Medicine, is a branch of medicine that deals with the prevention, diagnosis and the non-surgical treatments of diseases that are related to the internal organs. In our Internal Medicine Department, we find and understand the causes and symptoms as well as diagnose and treat a huge range of disorders that affect your body. Besides these, we also give you information related to the various types of chronic illnesses and their diagnosis.
What is the first step?
The first step in any treatment is to know and understand the signs and symptoms of your illness or disease. For example, frequent urination, increased hunger, excessive thirst, weight loss, blurred vision, tiredness and slow-healing wounds are a few symptoms of diabetes.
