VERSYS CLINICS - ENDOCRINOLOGY CENTER

Endocrinology is a special branch of internal medicine that deals with diseases of the endocrine glands.
The most important task of the endocrine system is to regulate the physiological processes of our body and to ensure internal stability through hormones. Hormones are products of endocrine glands which, after transportation into the bloodstream promote or inhibit the functioning of various organs.
During consultation at Versys Clinics - Endocrinology Center, Dr. Éva Csajbók specialist of endocrinology and internal medicine is welcoming our patients.

WHAT KIND OF ILLNESSES ARE TREATED BY AN ENDOCRINOLOGIST?

  • Pituitary gland disorders
  • Thyroid gland disorders
  • Parathyroid gland disorders
  • Bone metabolism disorders
  • Diabetes, carbohydrate metabolism disorders
  • Adrenal deficiency (adrenocortical and adrenal medulla insufficiency)
  • Disorders of male and female sex hormone production
  • Polycystic ovarian syndrome
  • Hormonal causes of male and female infertility
  • Overweight, obesity
  • Genetic diseases (eg.: Turner, Klinefelter, Prader-Willi sy.)
  • Multiple endocrine neoplasia (multiple endocrine gland tumor)
  • Polyglandular autoimmune diseases (immunodeficiency disorders affecting multiple endocrine glands)

WHEN SHOULD YOU SEE AN ENDOCRINOLOGIST?

Hormone disorders usually cause ordinary complaints that we may not take seriously at first, without any idea of illness in the background. However, if the problem has been existing for a long time (hair loss, overweight, etc.), it can be suspected to have endocrine origin.

  • In case of weight problems, if you experience weight gain or weight loss with normal eating.
  • In case of menstrual disorders, in case of suspected infertility
  • In case of fatigue, somnolence, chronic fatigue
  • In case of increased hair loss,brittle nails and oily, acne-like skin
  • Increased sweating, decreased heat tolerance, hot flushes

 

WHAT IS THE PROCESS OF A CLINICAL EXAMINATION OF THE ENDOCRINE SYSTEM?

  • Patient history: analysis of complaints and symptoms, family history
  • Examination of the patient
  • Laboratory tests (mainly hormon tests)
  • Imaging processes (abdominal / thyroid ultrasound, if necessary abdominal CT, pituitary MRI assays)
  • Ultrasound guided thyroid aspiration cytology (this test is performed by another institute)
  • If necessary, hormone stimulation tests. with medicines

 

WHICH ARE THE MOST FREQUENT ENDOCRINOLOGICAL DISEASES?

THYROID DISEASES:

  • underactivity (hypothyreosis)
  • overactivity (hyperthyreoisis)
  • inflammatory processes of the thyroid gland (thyreoiditis)
  • thyroid enlargement (struma / golyva)
  • thyroid tumors

PITUITARY GLAND (HYPOPHYSIS) DISEASES:

  • hormone producing tumors of the pituitary gland (eg prolactinom, acromegaly, Cushing syndrome)
  • non-hormone producing tumors of the pituitary gland
  • insufficiencies of the pituitary gland (eg.: growth retardation)
  • diabetes insipidus
  • liquid ionic balance insufficiency

ADRENAL DISEASE:

  • non-hormone-producing tumors
  • hormone-producing tumors or other hormonal overproduction (Cushing syndrome, Conn syndrome, congenital adrenal hypeplasia)
  • adrenal hypertension
  • liquid ionic balance insufficiency

PARATHYROID DISEASES CAUSING CA-METABOLISM DISORDERS:

  • overactivity (hyperparathyreosis)
  • underactivity (hypoparathyreosis)

OVERWEIGHT/OBESITY

CARBOHYDRATE METABOLISM DISORDERS:

  • reduced glucose tolerance
  • diabetes mellitus
  • insulin resistance

OVARIAN DISEASES:

  • polycystic ovarian syndrome
  • early ovarian depletion / failure (POI / POF
  • infertility
