Endocrinology and Diabetes

12178312_10153672637994210_24314093_n (1)Endocrinology is a science that studies the physiology and disorders of internal endocrine glands. Diabetes mellitus is one of the most important problems of endocrinology and especially pediatric endocrinology. In “Arabkir” Medical Centre the endocrinology service provides consultation and treatment to the children and adults who have endocrine problems.  The key component of the service is a diabetes treatment program which started operating in 1996 due to the support of “SEMRA” Foundation (Switzerland). The program’s goal is to provide children with diabetes with human insulin, modern means of self-control, control children’s health state each month to prevent possible complications emerging as a result of the disease and improve the quality of life of children and teenagers who have diabetes. In frameworks of the program the School of Diabetes has been established whose aim is to organize educational classes for children and their parents about self-control methods, choice of relevant nutrition and other topics. The children, who use our services, spend their summer holidays in Aparan summer camp which greatly contributes to their social integration and independence. During the time they stay in camp, the children make insulin injections on their own, implement self-control of glucose level in blood and urine;take part in organized physical and other different development and entertainment exercises. The medical stuff involved in the program has been trained in Swiss medical university hospitals many times. Since 2005, newborn screening has been implemented in “Arabkir” Medical Centre which is made for an early detection of innate hypothyroidism. All identified patients are taken under dispensary control in “Arabkir” Medical Centre.
