Endocrinology

Endocrinology is mainly concerned with hormone imbalances of the endocrine (hormone) gland in adults. The Endocrinology Department provides a broad endocrine service to patients in Medway, Swale and the surrounding area. The service is led by our Consultant Endocrinologists, who are trained to diagnose and treat hormone imbalances and problems by helping to restore the normal balance of hormones in your system.

Conditions treated include:
  • disorder of the gland
  • disorders of the parathyroid glands
  • adrenal disease
  • polycystic ovary syndrome
  • delayed puberty
  • disorders of growth
  • pituitary disease and tumours
  • reproductive endocrinology
  • secondary hypertension
  • hypogonadism
  • transgender endocrinology
  • hyperinsulinaemic hypoglycaemia.

We have recently set up a new Adrenal MDT jointly with the Urologists at Medway. We also work closely with the Endocrine team at Kings College Hospital and jointly discuss patients at their pituitary and Neuro-Endocrine multidisciplinary meetings and with the parathyroid surgeons at St Thomas’ Hospital in London.
