We provide comprehensive care, which includes a complete service of diagnosis and treatment of chronic complications of diabetes, education about the disease, exercise programs, nutritionist services and psychological support for our patients.
As part of the Centre, there are endocrinology clinics that focus on diagnosing and treating diseases of the thyroid gland, pituitary gland, adrenal gland, and osteoporosis. In the cardiometabolic part, we mainly deal with diabetes, dyslipidemias and obesity.
In addition to outpatient services, the Centre also offers day hospital services, nutritionist consultations and psychologist support.
In the day hospital, patients under the supervision of a diabetologist and a nurse (educator) can:
We provide all the currently available and most modern forms of education about basic disease, self-control and individual therapeutic goals
You will participate in exercise programs according to individual needs, depending on your cardiovascular (examination by a cardiologist) or musculoskeletal status (examination by a rheumatologist, physiatrist, or physical therapist).
