Ear, Nose & Throat Problems (Adults and Children)
Nose Allergy and Disorders of the Sinuses
Allergies of the nose result in sneezing, itching, runny and block nose. Sometimes there is eye and ear itch. It can be due to inhalant allergens or food allergies, with either acute or more subtle chronic manifestations.
Snoring and Sleep Apnoea
Sleep apnoea is when the throat narrows or closes during sleep and repeatedly interrupts your breathing.This results in a fall in the blood’s oxygen levels. The difficulty in breathing causes the brain to wake you up. This can happen hundreds of times a night without you realising. It leads to poor sleep quality and severe sleepiness during the day. Sleep apnoea causes daytime sleepiness that can seriously affect people’s work and social lives, and their ability to drive safely.
Thyroid & Salivary Gland Disorders
Your thyroid gland is one of the endocrine glands that make hormones to regulate physiological functions in your body, like metabolism (heart rate, sweating, energy consumed). Other endocrine glands include the pituitary, adrenal, and parathyroid glands and specialized cells within the pancreas. The salivary glands are found in and around your mouth and throat. They all secrete saliva into your mouth. Salivary glands produce the saliva used to moisten your mouth, initiate digestion, and help protect your teeth from decay.
