Endocrinology is a branch of biology and medicine that deals with the endocrine system. The endocrine system is one of the major systems of the human body responsible for control, communication and coordination of processes in the body. The endocrine system works together with the nervous system, reproductive system, kidneys, intestines, liver, pancreas and fat to control and regulate:
– The level of physical energy
– Growth and development
– Internal balance of the body, which is called homeostasis
– Response to the environment, stress and injury
The specialty that is endocrinology involves the study of the endocrine glands and the hormones that they secrete. Hormones control many basic functions of the body – growth, tissue regeneration, metabolism, adaptation to stress, reproduction, bone density, brain development, emotional and numerous other functions. Timely detection of disturbances in the work of the endocrine glands is important for the coordination of functions.
The team at Alpha Medic General Hospital performs diagnostic, monitoring and therapeutic treatment of the most common disorders of endocrine glands:
– Thyroid gland
– Pituitary gland
– Parathyroid glands
– Suprarenal glands
As an accompanying diagnostic method you can do a complete laboratory analysis of hormones, ultrasound examination of the thyroid gland and abdominal color Doppler scan, fine needle biopsy (FNA), and a cytological diagnosis of the thyroid gland.
