The endocrinology and metabolic diseases department deals with all diseases and health problems in the body related to hormones and glands. However, in cases where other body systems or organs are affected, the patient is directed to other related departments.

Treatment of endocrinology and metabolism diseases differs are depending on the health problems and the body deformations.

The most common treatments are

Pharmacological / Hormonal Treatments: This method gives medical treatment to patients with endocrine diseases. The hormone supplements are performed with injections, oral tablets or medications in powder form according to the diagnosed disease. However, in cases where other body systems are negatively affected, different types of medications can be prescribed to the patient to increase nutrient absorption, strengthen the immune system, regulate the metabolic rate or eliminate other symptoms.

Surgical Operations: Surgical operation is a preferred method if the glands cannot be controlled by pharmacological treatments or there are tumourigenesis or cystic formations. The surgical method varies according to the disease stage, type, age of the patient, whether there is a chronic disease and general health condition. Apart from the endocrinologist, the relevant branch physicians, other surgeons and paramedics also take part in the operation.

Regulation of Daily Life Habits: To regulate metabolism and hormone levels, it is very important for a person to stay away from harmful habits (if there are any), and to live a healthy life. Therefore, personalized nutrition programs can be prepared, maintaining sleep patterns and applying exercise programs can be recommended.
