Endocrinology is the study of the endocrine system and the diseases that can arise as a result of hormone dysfunction. The Endocrinologists at Sevenoaks Medical Centre specialise in the diagnosis and management of common endocrine disorders. These include disorders, which affect growth, metabolism, lipoprotein and weight.
The Endocrinology service utilises dynamic testing and has access to a full suite of services, including:
- Diabetic nurses
- Specialist podiatrists
- Access to the latest technologies, including insulin pumps and continuous glucose monitoring
Treatments for endocrine disorders can include hormone replacement therapy, which can deal with issues caused during menopause or caused as a result of hormone deficiency. With regards to problems with glands or cancers of the endocrine system, the consultants can also refer patients for endocrine surgery if necessary.
Sevenoaks Medical Centre specialises in the treatment of diabetes and takes a multidisciplinary approach to the management of the condition.
Working with nursing teams and consultants, we can advise a patient on dietary considerations. We can also arrange check-ups with consultants and podiatrists to help monitor and assist with blood sugar control.
We also provide our patients with information about, and access to, cutting-edge technologies for managing all forms of diabetes. This includes the latest models of insulin pumps, which provide a steady supply of insulin to the body. And continuous glucose monitors, which allow blood-sugar readings to be taken conveniently and without the use of traditional lancets.
