Hormone will show your health status

Diabetes-Endocrine center diagnoses and treats various hormone-associated diseases of our body. Main fields of care are diabetes, thyroid disease, pituitary disease, secondary hypertension, adrenal disease, osteoporosis, parathyroid disease, dyslipidemia, hereditary rare endocrine disease, obesity and nutritional disorders. In particular, for the professional treatment of diabetes, which is a major problem in terms of national health, we are operating diabetes complication laboratory and separate facilities for diabetes education and nutrition education.


Diabetes is a disorder that various organs of our body are affected by high blood sugar. The ultimate goal of diabetes treatment is to prevent complications caused by high blood sugar and maintain a normal life. Therefore, it is necessary to know blood sugar level that changes by diet, exercise, stress and medication, and adjust the lifestyle and control medications accordingly.

Thyroid gland

Thyroid: Thyroid nodules, thyroid cancer, thyroiditis, hypothyroidism, hyperthyroidism (Graves' disease)

Thyroid disease includes a variety of diseases, including thyroid hormone abnormalities such as hyperthyroidism and hypothyroidism, benign thyroid nodules, and thyroid cancer. To diagnose thyroid dysfunction, a thyroid hormone test is performed through a blood test. In some cases, a thyroid scan test may be necessary. In addition, to differentiate between benign and malignant tumors of the thyroid gland, we perform ultrasound of the thyroid gland, microscopic inhalation test, and genetic testing.

Pituitary gland

Pituitary gland: pituitary tumor, terminal hypertrophy, Cushing's disease, milk secretion hormone (prolactin) secretion adenoma

The pituitary gland is located at the base of the brain and produces hormones that regulate the endocrine function of our body. Most pituitary diseases are caused by tumors that change the secretion of certain hormones in the pituitary gland, and these abnormal hormone secretions cause abnormal reactions in various parts of the body. For diagnosis, a test for pituitary hormone secretion and a pituitary MRI (sella MRI) are performed to determine the location and treatment of pituitary tumors.

Adrenal gland

Adrenal gland: Adrenal syndrome, aldosteronism, brown cell tumor, adrenal insufficiency, secondary (endocrine) hypertension

Adrenal diseases include Cushing's syndrome, pheochromocytoma, aldosteronism, etc., in which systemic diseases are caused by excessive amount of certain hormones secreted by the adrenal glands. It also includes diseases caused by lack of hormones from adrenal glands. Secondary hypertension is a disease caused by abnormality in fluid and electrolyte balance, and blood pressure control by unknown cause, and is particularly related to adrenal disease. For diagnosis, blood tests for adrenal hormones, urine tests, and imaging tests such as adrenal CT are performed.

Osteoporosis & Parathyroid disease

Osteoporosis is a disease in which the bone mass is significantly reduced and the inside of the bone is not dense, leaving many round empty spaces, eventually making the bone very fragile to even minor bumps. Parathyroid disease is a disorder of hormones secreted from the parathyroid gland that regulate calcium level, which is related to bone formation. Bone density testing is required for the diagnosis and evaluation of osteoporosis, and related hormone tests are needed to identify the causes of bone metabolism and parathyroid disease.


Hyperlipidemia is a condition in which blood cholesterol and triglycerides are high. Dyslipidemia is the cause of arteriosclerosis, which can lead to complications such as angina, myocardial infarction, stroke, or foot disease. Treatment requires dietary control, proper weight maintenance, and regular exercise. Dyslipidemia, which is not well regulated by these lifestyle changes, can maintain adequate cholesterol or triglyceride levels by taking medications such as statins.

Endocrine genetic diseases

The endocrine genetic disease clinic is based on various advanced diagnostic techniques, genome testing, big data utilization, multidisciplinary treatment, etc., for endocrine metabolic genetic diseases that have not been resolved for a long time because the cause, diagnosis, and treatment methods are not known by ordinary treatment. We are looking for clues to diagnose and treat the problem.


Obesity refers to a case in which fat in the body is excessively accumulated in excess of the required amount, and if fat is excessively accumulated in the abdomen or abdominal cavity, the risk of developing adult diseases such as diabetes, hypertension, dyslipidemia, arteriosclerotic cardiovascular disease and stroke increases. In addition, obesity increases the incidence of various cancers such as breast cancer and colon cancer. Obesity treatment consists of four elements: dietary therapy to limit calorie intake, exercise therapy to increase physical activity, behavioral therapy to correct wrong lifestyle, and drug therapy. Surgical treatment may also be considered in patients with high obesity.
