Endocrine glands play an important role in the human body. Each endocrine gland is responsible for secreting hormones, maintaining optimal functioning of metabolism, organs and tissues. Endocrine gland disorders including hyper or dysfunction, cause dangerous diseases such as diabetes, hyperthyroidism, hypothyroidism, etc.
CarePlus Endocrinology Services
At CarePlus, endocrinologists conduct clinical examinations to check the function of endocrine glands in the body. Doctors will ask the patient to explore the problems of the patient and family history, check lifestyle (diet and exercise), height, weight, number of pregnancies..., combined with laboratory results to develop a future treatment plan that best suits your needs. each patient.
Careplus doctors pay great attention to combining pharmacological and non-drug treatments to achieve the safest and most effective long-term results for patients. Doctors will take the time to advise on the right nutrition, exercise regimen along with detailed instructions on how to use drugs to help patients understand the side effects of the drug.
We perform such diagnosis and treatment of common endocrine diseases as:
1. Examination, consultation, screening and treatment of diabetes and diabetes complications:
Type 1 diabetes: An autoimmune disorder caused by the inability of the body to produce the hormone insulin, it accounts for about 3-5% of cases. Without insulin, glucose cannot be used, causing blood glucose levels to rise.
Type 2 diabetes: A non-insulin dependent diabetes mellitus, accounting for the highest proportion (about 90%-95%) of the total number of cases. The disease usually appears in adulthood, but the affected subjects tend to be younger. Type 2 diabetes is often associated with obesity and physical inactivity.
Gestational diabetes: This is a type of diabetes that occurs only in pregnant women, when blood glucose levels rise but the body cannot respond enough insulin to balance it out. About 5% of pregnant women may develop diabetes, and most go away on their own after giving birth. However, gestational diabetes can cause many effects on the fetus and has a very high chance of developing type 2 diabetes after birth. Therefore, it is necessary to monitor and screen the disease to prevent dangerous complications for the mother and the fetus.
Complications of diabetes: If diabetes is not detected early and treated promptly, the disease can lead to many dangerous complications.
- Acute complications: occur suddenly, in a short time such as coma, shivering, sweating, anxiety, dizziness, palpitations
- Chronic complications: Cardiovascular disease (coronary artery occlusion, high blood pressure, arteriosclerosis, myocardial infarction, cerebrovascular accident causing paralysis, death), nerve damage (neuropathy). peripheral and autonomic nerves), kidney damage (impaired filtering and excretory function, renal failure), eye damage (rupture or blockage of small blood vessels in the retina, cataracts, glaucoma, blindness), skin diseases (bacterial, fungal infections), hearing loss, Alzheimer's disease.
2. Examination, consultation, screening and treatment of thyroid diseases
Hyperthyroidism: this is when the thyroid gland makes more hormones than the body needs. It makes systems in the body work fast and you can feel anxious, lose weight, have a fast heartbeat or have trouble sleeping.
Hypothyroidism: when the body doesn't make enough thyroid hormone, the system slows down and you can experience fatigue, weight gain, slow heart rate, and joint and muscle pain.
3. Examination, consultation, diagnosis and treatment of adrenal gland disorders
Adrenal insufficiency: The adrenal glands make enough of certain hormones, like cortisol, to help manage stress.
Cushing's syndrome: This is when the body produces too much cortisol. Early signs may include weight gain, easy stretch marks, easy bruising, then muscle and bone weakness and possibly the development of a hump in the upper back.
4. Examination, consultation, diagnosis and treatment of disorders of the pituitary gland and lower region
Hypopituitarism: that is, the pituitary gland does not make certain hormones for the adrenal glands and thyroid gland to function properly.
5. Blood tests and endocrine medical imaging
CarePlus focuses on investing in modern equipment, in order to bring the most accurate laboratory results to help doctors have a basis for diagnosis conclusions and find the best treatment for patients.
Endocrine tests usually ordered by the doctor include: Blood sugar test (Blood glucose), Endocrine hormone test (LH, FSH, Prolactin, AMH, testosterone hormone, progesterone,...); Test liver, kidney, blood fat
Thyroid ultrasound, echocardiography, abdominal ultrasound, carotid/lower extremity ultrasound,...
