Department of Endocrinology, Diabetes and Nutrition (including the Section for Lipid Metabolism)
On the web pages of the Department of Endocrinology, Diabetes and Nutrition (including the Section for Lipid Metabolism) you will get an overview of our inpatient unit, the outpatient department and the day hospital. There is further information on the various diseases in endocrinology and metabolic medicine. The clinic offers extensive medical care both in an inpatient setting on our medical ward and via the outpatient clinic. Patients can be treated at all locations of the Charité Network in Berlin (Campus Mitte, Campus Benjamin-Franklin, Campus Virchow Klinikum and Campus Buch). Beside the treatment of general internal diseases, the clinic is specialized in metabolic diseases such as overweight and obesity, hypertension, type 1 and type 2 diabetes, all thyroid diseases, bone diseases including osteoporosis, as well as diseases of the pituitary and adrenal glands. A comprehensive work up of diagnostics and therapies is offered to our patients. E.g. all patients with hormonal bone diseases or even suspicion thereof are offered a free DXA-Scan for bone density measurements. Our clinic is a certified Excellence Center for the diagnostics and therapy of endocrine tumors (e.g. adrenal or thyroid cancer, pheochromocytoma or pituitary tumors). In our diabetes day hospital we offer individualized nutritional counseling and therapies for optimization of insulin therapy for acute and long-term blood sugar control (e.g. via oat diets). Diseases involving lipid metabolism are treated primarily at the outpatient clinic at Campus Mitte and in the Lipid Outpatient Department at Campus Virchow-Klinikum. In our basic and clinical research projects we are investigating hormonal and metabolic diseases as well as nutritional questions, such that our patients can have direct access to the newest scientific data and the most current therapeutic options.
