Our bodies have a variety of glands, each of which is interrelated with the nervous system. These small, but influential organs secret hormones and exert influence on the whole human organism. Endocrine gland pathologies can have serious consequences, such as malignant growth, diabetes, obesity, calvities, sudden body weight loss, etc.
Endocrinology is the medical specialty, which studies the structure, the functioning and the disorders of glands secreting vital hormones. Such pathologies develop due to stresses, deterioration of environment, unhealthy diet, vicious habits, and numerous heredity factors. All this can destroy the healthy functioning of the endocrine glands, which often results in serious conditions.

It is very difficult to diagnose endocrine and metabolic disorders. As a rule, their signs are quite indistinctive: for example, the patient can suffer from hyposthenia, fatigue, depression, or sudden loss of weight. This is why most of Europeans with endocrine conditions get to know about their diseases only when they become advanced. The specialists of our Endocrinology Department have a solid experience in diagnosis of all these conditions in their early stages. For this purpose, we apply to the unique combination of modern examinations and tests, state-of-the-art equipment, and the techniques of Traditional Chinese Medicine.
