Testing a drop of blood on the patient's fingertip

Endocrinology is dedicated to the study of endocrine glands and their associated pathologies, such as diabetes, obesity, thyroid diseases, and metabolic diseases.

The endocrinologist is a specialist physician that addresses pathologies of the endocrine system, which include the hypothalamus, the pituitary gland, the thyroid, the parathyroid glands, the pancreas, the ovaries, the testicles, and the adrenal glands.

The pathologies of these glands, which secrete hormones, involve multiple systems, organs and tissues, regulating functions such as appetite, body weight, reproduction, metabolism, growth and reaction to stress.

The evaluation and treatment of conditions such as infertility, diabetes, thyroid diseases, or obesity is carried out by an endocrinologist. In many situations, patients are referred to an Endocrinology follow-up by specialists in General and Family Medicine or Gynecology, among other specialties.

The medical teams of specialists in Endocrinology at Joaquim Chaves Saúde clinics are composed of experienced professionals who are able to respond to a wide spectrum of diseases of the endocrine system. We are equipped with state-of-the-art technology to prevent, detect, and monitor the various pathologies and ensure patients are provided with personalised treatment, catered to their unique needs. Our Laboratory provides a wide range of analytical testing in this area, some of which are only available in Portugal at Joaquim Chaves Saúde.
