Endocrine system… “under the microscope”.

Endocrinology is the science that studies the function of endocrine glands, who are responsible for hormone production.

Main endocrine glands are:

  • Thyroid
  • Parathyroid glands
  • Pituitary
  • Adrenal glands
  • Pancreas
  • Testicles
  • Ovaries

Endocrine glands are responsible for the control and coordination of almost all activities of the human body.

Dr. Mary Triantafyllidou in her private practice endopraxis, in Kavala, offers high-standard services, for the care and treatment of every issue regarding diseases of endocrine glands.

Most common diseases of endocrine glands are:

  • Disturbed thyroid function

  • Disturbed function of parathyroid glands
    • Hyperparathyroidism, hypoparathyroidism
  • Disturbed pituitary function
    • Hyperprolactinaemia/prolactinomas, overproduction of growth hormone/acromegaly, overproduction of cortisol/pituitary Cushing’s disease, reduced production of one or more pituitary hormones, most commonly as a result of pituitary tumors or immunotherapy of oncological patients
  • Disturbed function of adrenal glands
    • Cortisol over-production/Cushing syndrome, cortisol deficiency/Addison’s disease, hyperaldosteronism
  • Tumours
    • Adrenal (adenomas, pheochromocytomas)
    • Pancreas (insulinomas, pancreatic neuroendocrine tumours)
    • Rest neuroendocrine tumours
  • Diabetes mellitus
