Department of Endocrinology and Metabolism
(Endocrinology Division, Diabetes and Metabolism Division)
Staff specialized in endocrine diseases such as those affecting the thyroid, parathyroid, adrenal, and pituitary glands, and in metabolic diseases such as diabetes mellitus (type 1, type 2), dyslipidemia, and gout provides the best clinical practice. When you need clinical service beyond internal medicine, such as pituitary surgery and sterility treatment, you also expect to get the best medical care from us in col- laboration with members in the related departments. For diabetes, a 1-week period of hospitalization for instruction is also offered.
