Clinic Genolier - Endocrinology and diabetology
Endocrinology is the science of hormones, the chemicals that play an essential role in growth, development, reproduction and energy production. The disorders most frequently encountered in this field include: diabetes, thyroid problems (goitre, thyroid nodules), hypoglycaemia, complications of menopause (osteoporosis), etc. Endocrinologists diagnose and treat disorders related to hormonal imbalances and metabolic disturbances.
Diabetes is a disorder that develops primarily in response to a lack of insulin, the hormone required by the body to assimilate glucose, and it is therefore associated with excessive levels of glucose in the blood. The complications of diabetes, some serious, some less so, involve the heart, the blood vessels, the kidneys, the eyes, the nervous system, etc. The doctors at Clinique de Genolier are experts in screening and therapy and in the prevention of diabetic complications. The main causes of diabetes are hereditary predisposition combined with a number of lifestyle factors, such as obesity, poor diet and lack of exercise. A person whose diabetes is well controlled can enjoy a normal working and social life. However, this disorder does require life-long medical attention.
