Hormones have an important task in our body, because they control central processes such as metabolism or blood pressure. If hormone production is disturbed, this can therefore lead to various diseases - for example, diabetes mellitus, disorders of the sexual organs or obesity.
In our consultation, we look for the causes of your problems and choose the appropriate therapy together with you.

Although diabetes mellitus type 1 and type 2 cannot be cured, well-controlled patients can lead a symptom-free life. The aim of treatment is to keep blood glucose levels at a normal level.
Elevated blood fat levels (lipids) and, in particular, elevated cholesterol levels are an important risk factor for cardiovascular disease because they promote atherosclerosis. A change in lifestyle can significantly reduce the risk. If necessary, additional medications are used.
Malnutrition can be the cause or consequence of various diseases and problems. These include, for example, wound healing disorders, increased susceptibility to infections, tendency to fall, as well as reduced quality of life and increased mortality. It is therefore important to recognize and treat malnutrition or its risk factors in good time.
Metabolic diseases are mostly congenital. In their treatment, cooperation between different disciplines is very important.
Metabolic and hormonal diseases often occur when glands are over- or under-functioning (thyroid, parathyroid, adrenal, pituitary). Well-known examples are thyroid diseases, diabetes mellitus and lipometabolic disorders.
Overweight (obesity) is a risk factor for various chronic diseases such as diabetes mellitus, hypertension, heart disease and joint arthrosis. The treatment of patients with obesity is carried out in an interdisciplinary team.
