Endocrinology at UPMC Salvator Mundi International Hospital
UPMC Salvator Mundi International Hospital offers endocrinology services to treat endocrine diseases. These concern the glands that produce hormones, such as the thyroid, pancreas, pituitary, adrenal glands, and gonads, which ensure the proper functioning of the body. The most well-known endocrine pathology is thyroiditis, an inflammation of the thyroid gland that causes annoying and often disabling symptoms.
In some cases, the onset of endocrine dysfunction can manifest itself with non-specific symptoms such as tachycardia, sweating, or frequent urination. In the presence of such disorders, it is advisable to book a visit. UPMC Salvator Mundi International Hospital offers advanced diagnostic tools and effective integrated care pathways.
Endocrinology Visit: What It Consists Of
The endocrinological examination allows early detection of the presence of diseases in order to start a personalized therapy. During the interview, the specialist collects information about your symptoms and the lifestyle you lead and prescribes the necessary in-depth examinations. Endocrine dysfunctions are rarely detected through common blood tests, such as blood counts and electrolytes. Instead, specific high-level analysis and diagnostic services such as ultrasound and cytological examinations are required. Thyroid needle aspiration is a minimally invasive procedure that allows cells to be taken and analyzed to rule out the presence of tumor.
