 Our clinical department is open for outpatients with endocrine diseases and diabetes from Monday to Friday. Details are as below:
  § Diabetes Class (From 2:30 pm, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday)
  § Thyroid Ultrasonography (From 2:00 pm, Monday)
  § Cervical Vascular Ultrasonography (From 9:00 am, Monday and Thursday)
  § Foot Care (Monday)

 In clinical endocrinology, we handle diseases specifically in hypothalamus-pituitary, thyroid, parathyroid, adrenal gland, and gonad, and work closely with the related surgery team. In addition, we intensively evaluate primary aldosteronism in patients with hypertension, which is a significant cause of endocrine hypertension.

 In clinical diabetes therapy, our strategy for diabetes management is to have strict and safe blood sugar control of diabetic patients as well as the appropriate evaluation of diabetic complications. We also execute basic or clinical research on the pathogenesis and the innovative drug development of the metabolic syndrome and diabetes. Moreover, we are officially certified as the Institute of Islet Cell Transplantation -a hopeful treatment of type 1 diabetes. Correspondingly, diagnosis and treatment of diabetic foot (foot care) is one of our major missions. Hospitalized diabetic patients can use our exercise facility (Medical Fitness Center) for exercise therapy of diabetes.
