Hormones are responsible for many functions in the body. The endocrine (hormonal) system is formed by the endocrine glands that produce hormones. Pituitary, hypothalamus, thyroid and parathyroid, pancreas, ovaries and testicles, adrenal glands, and endothelial cells lining the inner surface of the vessels are among the secretory glands that make up the endocrine system.
Insufficient secretion, not being secreted at all or more than normal secretion of hormones produced and secreted in the endocrine glands, cause hormonal diseases. Many diseases such as deficiencies in vitamin and mineral absorption, sexual diseases, diabetes, obesity and goiter fall under the area of expertise of endocrinology and metabolic diseases clinics.
At the same time, diagnosis and treatment of fat, carbohydrate and protein metabolism diseases, which are mostly due to hereditary factors, are also carried out by Endocrinology and Metabolic Diseases clinics.
The area of expertise of the Department of Endocrinology and Metabolic Diseases covers hormones and metabolic diseases.
Our hospitals have all the facilities and state-of-the-art equipment for radiological imaging methods, especially hormone tests, and all other diagnostic tests needed for endocrinology and metabolic diseases.
The main diseases treated in Endocrinology and Metabolic Diseases clinics are:
- Hypertension (High Blood Pressure
- Insulin Resistance
- Thyroid Gland Diseases (Goiter, Thyroid nodules, Thyroid cancers, Thyroid inflammations)
- Adrenal Gland Diseases
- Blood Lipid Metabolism Diseases
