About the Department of Endocrinology, Diabetology and Metabolic Disorders at Memorial Bahcelievler Hospital Istanbul

The Department of Endocrinology, Diabetology and Metabolic Disorders at the Memorial Bahсelievler Hospital Istanbul offers the full range of services in its areas of ​​specialization. Of particular interest to the department's specialists are endocrine tumors, as well as diabetes mellitus, obesity and metabolic disorders. In the case of obesity and concomitant diseases, the doctors develop an individual nutrition program aimed at normalizing body weight, as well as reducing cholesterol and triglyceride levels. Prior to treatment, the doctors carefully study the patient's medical history and determine the cause of the disease. Thanks to modern equipment and long experience of the specialists, the department uses innovative treatment methods, which allow achieving excellent results even in the most complex clinical cases. The department is headed by Assoc. Prof. Dr. med. Esra Suheda Hatipoglu.

The department often admits patients with diabetes mellitus. The department's doctors develop a comprehensive and individual treatment program, which allows them to prevent the development of complications of the pathology and significantly improve the patient's quality of life. If necessary, insulin therapy regimen is selected. Particular attention is paid to training patients the correct lifestyle with diabetes mellitus and the use of devices for self-monitoring of blood sugar levels.

Although diabetes mellitus is one of the most common diseases, many patients are admitted to the department with dysfunction of the thyroid, pituitary and adrenal glands, as well as with rare metabolic disorders. Such diseases often lead to overweight and obesity. Both physicians and nutritionists cooperate closely to develop an individual health care program. They hold individual consultations on all issues of interest to the patient and use a comprehensive clinical approach.

Thanks to modern equipment, the department's specialists provide both diagnostics and treatment of endocrine tumors. Endocrine neoplasms are rare, and their detection often depends on the ability to produce hormones. When treating such pathologies, the specialists use algorithms developed by professional associations of international experts in this medical field. The therapy includes surgical, drug and radionuclide methods. As a rule, resection is required for both hormonally active and hormonally inactive tumors. Antihormonal drugs are also often prescribed. Their action is aimed at blocking hormonal disorders, which develop due to the hormonally active neoplasms. Modern chemotherapy treatments and state-of-the-art equipment show positive results even at the advanced stages.
