Bronchitis (Respiratory disorders): Inflammation of the airways that may be acute (short-term) or chronic (long-term). Acute bronchitis usually follows a viral respiratory infection. Chronic bronchitis is usually caused by smoking. Treatment depends on the type and duration of bronchitis. For acute bronchitis, simple measures include resting, drinking fluids, taking aspirin or Tylenol to reduce a fever, and using a humidifier. For chronic bronchitis, inhaled medicines may be needed to open the airways and clear mucus. Other drugs may be prescribed to treat an infection or reduce inflammation. Sometimes, home oxygen is required to treat low oxygen levels in the blood. Physicians at Continental Hospitals are best equipped in treatment for respiratory disorders of all kinds.

Other causes of acute chest pain include pneumonia, bronchitis, gastritis, esophagitis, and asthma. Chronic chest pain can arise from many causes, including angina, hiatal hernia, gallbladder disease, ulcers, and chronic bronchitis. General medicine physicians are skilled in determining the source of chronic chest pain and prescribing therapies to address the underlying cause or alleviate the symptoms.
Dengue Fever: Dengue fever and dengue hemorrhagic fever (DHF) are acute febrile diseases caused by a family of viruses that are transmitted by mosquitoes.

The most serious forms of the disease are caused by Plasmodium falciparum and Plasmodium vivax, but other related species (Plasmodium ovale, Plasmodium malariae, and sometimes Plasmodium knowlesi) can also infect humans. This group of human-pathogenic Plasmodium species is usually referred to as malaria parasites. Continental Hospitals is the best hospital for the treatment of malaria in Hyderabad.

Treatment may include dietary changes, exercise, weight loss, smoking cessation, and medication. Continental Hospitals is the best hospital for the treatment of Hypertension in Hyderabad.
Hypothyroidism: An underactive thyroid gland. The thyroid gland regulates the body’s energy through thyroid hormones called T3 and T4. When the thyroid gland does not produce enough of these hormones, the body’s metabolism slows down. Symptoms include weight gain, tiredness, forgetfulness, dry skin and hair, and inability to stay warm. Hypothyroidism can be diagnosed with a simple blood test. It is treated with medication to restore adequate hormone levels. Continental Hospitals is the best hospital for this disorder.

In addition to intense pain, a migraine may cause nausea, vomiting, and extreme sensitivity to light and sound. There is no cure for migraines, but the frequency and severity of migraines can be reduced with medication.
Osteoarthritis: A joint disease that primarily affects the cartilage, the shock-absorbing tissue that covers the ends of bones in a joint. Healthy cartilage cushions the joints and allows bones to glide over one another. In people with osteoarthritis, some of the cartilage is broken down or worn away, which allows the bones to rub together. The result is pain, swelling, and loss of motion. Strategies for minimizing discomfort and supporting joint health include rest, exercise, weight loss, and medication for pain and inflammation.

Osteoporosis: Loss of bone density and thinning of bone tissue, resulting in fragile bones and an increased risk of fractures. Osteoporosis becomes more common with age, and it is more common in women than in men. The risk of osteoporosis increases for women after menopause when estrogen levels drop. Osteoporosis usually has no symptoms, but it can be diagnosed easily with a bone mineral density test called dual-energy x-ray absorptiometry (DEXA). Drugs for osteoporosis can prevent or slow the rate of bone loss and reduce the risk of fractures. Continental is the best place for treatment in Hyderabad.
Pneumonia: Pneumonia is an infection of one or both lungs which is usually caused by bacteria, viruses, or fungi and contracted by breathing in small droplets that contain the organisms that can cause pneumonia. These droplets get into the air when a person infected with these germs coughs or sneezes. People with recent viral infections, lung disease, heart disease, and swallowing problems, as well as alcoholics, drug users, and those who have suffered a stroke or seizure are at higher risk for developing pneumonia than the general population. Once organisms enter the lungs, they usually settle in the air sacs of the lung where they rapidly grow in number. This area of the lung then becomes filled with fluid and pus as the body attempts to fight off the infection. Continental, Hyderabad is the best hospital for treating Pneumonia.
Tuberculosis: Tuberculosis (TB) is an infectious disease caused by bacteria Mycobacterium tuberculosis. TB most commonly affects the lungs but also can involve almost any organ of the body. Today, tuberculosis usually can be treated successfully. There is also a group of organisms referred to as atypical tuberculosis that do not cause disease and are referred to as “colonizers,” because they simply live alongside other bacteria in our bodies without causing damage. At times, these bacteria can cause an infection that sometimes appears as typical tuberculosis. Typhoid treatment is the best at Continental, Hyderabad.
Typhoid (Enteric) Fever: Typhoid Fever is an acute illness associated with diarrhea, systemic disease, fever and rash caused by the Salmonellae Typhi bacteria.
