About MEDICOVER – Specialists in Endocrinology at Viktualienmarkt in Munich

For this purpose, Medicover has specialists on hand who examine endocrine disorders and their consequences for health in detail and treat them interdisciplinary.

Hormone Specialist and Hormone Therapy in Munich

The internal medicine and endocrinology specialists at MEDICOVER Munich deal with diseases of the body's endocrine glands and their products. The most important endocrine glands are the pituitary gland (hypophysis) with its two parts of different function, which act as a control center and interface between the brain and the other hormone glands.

The thyroid gland and the parathyroid glands are located in the anterior neck region. The iodine hormones of the thyroid gland have important regulatory functions in the organism's energy metabolism, while the parathyroid gland keeps calcium metabolism in balance via the parathormone.

The pancreas has an exocrine part, which releases essential digestive enzymes into the small intestine, and an endocrine part with the islets of Langerhans, which mainly produce the counterpart hormones to regulate blood glucose levels. A defect in this sensitive system favors the development of diabetes mellitus.

In stressful situations, the adrenal glands secrete the hormones cortisol and adrenaline to increase the body's performance.

Last but not least, the gonads, i.e., the genital organs such as the testes and ovaries, are among the hormonal glands, as they produce the majority of the sex hormones that play an important role in sexual functions and growth.

Expertise and Specialist Advice for Menopausal Problems

The climacteric, the menopause around the last menstrual period, is a time of profound hormonal change in a woman's life, usually between 40 and 50.

Psychological fluctuations and physical changes often accompany the transition that heralds the end of a woman's fertile period. Usually, menstrual cycles become more irregular until the ovaries stop producing hormones. This moment is marked by the last menstrual period, menopause. About two-thirds of all women suffer from typical symptoms during this phase of their lives, such as hot flashes, sleep disturbances, and dryness of the mucous membranes. Such signs must be diagnosed as menopausal symptoms, especially in the early climacteric, to distinguish them from other cycle complaints requiring treatment. They can then be treated with the substitutive administration of estrogen or progesterone.

Diabetology in Munich – Specialized Doctors and Consultants

Current diabetes therapy does not focus on the disease itself but on the patient and, in particular, on how they cope with their illness. This is because the patient's behavior is important in successfully coping with this metabolic disorder. Therefore, it is always the goal of an experienced diabetologist to explain the pathological processes reasonably and practically, to make the patient an expert in their disease. Only through a sufficient understanding of the metabolic processes can the affected person adopt a health-supporting approach to reduce complications and late effects. Therefore, particular attention should be paid to the patient's therapy wishes, which a respectful therapist should ask about in a consultation to develop an individual treatment concept jointly.

Medical Expertise for Hyperthyroidism

Excessive thyroid function (hyperthyroidism) is considered a common reason for an appointment with an endocrinologist. In disorders such as Graves' disease, too much thyroid hormone is produced and released into the blood over a long period. As a result, the energy metabolism of all body cells is abnormally upregulated. As a result, the entire metabolism of the organism runs at full speed without interruption, putting an excessive strain on the body. Typical symptoms are high blood pressure, palpitations, hot flashes, next to inner restlessness, and severe weight loss despite a pronounced feeling of hunger. Once the diagnosis is confirmed, the production rate of the hormones can be reduced with medication or by surgically removing the thyroid gland.

Treatment for Hypothyroidism

Hypothyroidism is a deficiency in the production of thyroid hormones, which has an inhibitory effect on the energy metabolism of the organism. As a result, all body cells reduce their metabolic activity to a minimum. Mild hypofunction is diagnosed more frequently, especially in older patients. Leading symptoms are permanent fatigue, unexplained weight gain, slow pulse, and sensitivity to cold. Although hypothyroidism is rare in children, an unusually high need for sleep and all developmental disorders are alarming symptoms and always require medical evaluation.

Experts for Hashimoto's Thyroiditis

The most common cause of hypothyroidism is an autoimmune disease called Hashimoto's thyroiditis. The body's immune system attacks the thyroid gland cells, causing the organ to become chronically inflamed until it stops working. If the patient shows signs of a severe undersupply of thyroid hormones, the required thyroxine can be administered by medication.
