In this condition, the airway swells to make the passage narrower and excess mucus are produced. It might get difficult for a person to breathe.

Steroids can be used to prevent symptoms of asthma. Oxygen therapy can be used for supportive care during the treatment of asthma.

At one of the best hospital for the treatment of type II diabetes, it can be treated by exercise, diet control, and in severe cases, insulin therapy.

Endocrine disorders

The endocrine system comprises the hormone functioning and feedback loops of hormones. One of the most common endocrine diseases is diabetes which causes increased blood sugar levels in the human body. Endocrine disorders may be caused due to infection, stress, and changes in body fluids which affect the production of hormones in the patient’s body.

High cholesterol

Cholesterol is crucial for human body but increased levels of cholesterol may cause the dangers of heart diseases. Fatty acids develop in your blood vessels constricting the easy passage of blood through your arteries. High cholesterol is a severe condition as it shows no symptoms. It can be cured by maintaining a balanced diet and routine exercise. Cholesterol medications and statin may also be used to treat high cholesterol.
