Specialized medical services
In the Section of Metabolic Medicine, there are about 60 physicians, including specialists in diabetes mellitus, dyslipidemia, hypertension, obesity, metabolic syndrome, atherosclerosis, thyroid diseases, pituitary and adrenal diseases. We take care of patients with such metabolic and/or endocrine disorders. Patients are admitted to this hospital when necessary (e.g. glycemic control, education for diabetes mellitus, evaluation and treatment of diabetic complications, treatment of hypertension and dyslipidemia, evaluation of atherosclerosis and cardiovascular diseases, evaluation and treatment of various pituitary and adrenal diseases).
We take care of patients with a variety of metabolic and/or endocrine diseases such as diabetes mellitus, dyslipidemia, hypertension, obesity, metabolic syndrome, atherosclerosis, thyroid diseases, pituitary and adrenal diseases. We give nutritional education to patients with diabetes mellitus and evaluate diabetic complications, including macro- and micro-angiopathies. When necessary, diabetic patients receive guidance on foot care, self-injection of insulin and self-monitoring of blood glucose. Furthermore, we perform various load tests in order to evaluate pituitary and/or adrenal function.
