The Cli­nic for Endocri­no­lo­gy and Meta­bo­lic Medi­ci­ne (inclu­ding the lipid meta­bo­lism divi­si­on) spe­cia­li­zes in the fol­lowing meta­bo­lic diseases:

  • Over­weight and obesity
  • high blood pressure
  • Type 1 and type 2 dia­be­tes mellitus
  • Lipid meta­bo­lism disorders
  • Thy­ro­id disease
  • Bone meta­bo­lism dis­or­ders, for examp­le osteoporosis
  • Pitui­ta­ry, adre­nal and other diseases

Com­pre­hen­si­ve pati­ent care is pro­vi­ded in dia­gnostics and the­ra­py. For examp­le, all pati­ents with hor­mo­nal bone dise­a­ses or suspec­ted dise­a­ses such as osteo­po­ro­sis are offe­red a bone den­si­ty test. This is also cal­led dual X‑ray absorp­tio­me­try, or DXA for short.

The Cli­nic for Endocri­no­lo­gy and Meta­bo­lic Medi­ci­ne is a cen­ter of excel­lence in the dia­gno­sis and tre­at­ment of pati­ents with endocri­ne tumors, such as adre­nal car­ci­no­mas, thy­ro­id car­ci­no­mas, pheo­chro­mo­cy­to­mas and pitui­ta­ry adenomas.

In the field of nut­ri­tio­nal medi­ci­ne and dia­be­to­lo­gy, the day cli­nic offers, among other things, indi­vi­dua­li­zed nut­ri­tio­nal the­ra­pies for the tre­at­ment of dia­be­tes pati­ents with a high need for insu­lin: so-cal­led oat days.

Dise­a­ses of the lipid or fat meta­bo­lism are loo­ked after espe­cial­ly during the con­sul­ta­ti­on hours at the Cha­ri­té Cam­pus Mit­te and in the lipid out­pa­ti­ent depart­ment at the Cha­ri­té Cam­pus Virchow-Klinikum.

The loca­ti­ons of the cli­nic with its out­pa­ti­ent depart­ments, the ward and day cli­nic are spread over the Cam­pi Cha­ri­té Mit­te, Ben­ja­min Fran­k­lin (Ste­glitz), Virchow-Kli­ni­kum (Wed­ding) and Berlin-Buch.


In basic and cli­ni­cal rese­arch, the employees deal sci­en­ti­fi­cal­ly with hor­mo­nal dis­or­ders, nut­ri­tio­nal medi­ci­ne issu­es and meta­bo­lic dise­a­ses such as obe­si­ty, dia­be­tes mel­li­tus, arte­ri­al hyper­ten­si­on, adre­nal car­ci­no­ma or dise­a­ses of the pitui­ta­ry gland. This direct access to the latest rese­arch results enab­les pati­ents to be offe­red the best and most up-to-date the­ra­py options.

Pre­ven­ti­on stra­te­gies for the major nut­ri­ti­on-depen­dent dise­a­ses such as type 2 dia­be­tes mel­li­tus, arte­rios­cle­ro­sis and obe­si­ty are the sub­ject of long-term stu­dies. Adi­po­se tis­sue hor­mo­nes (adipo­cy­to­ki­nes), meta­bo­lic hor­mo­nes and vascu­lar regu­la­ti­on as well as their con­nec­tion with nut­ri­ti­on should be bet­ter unders­tood. Taking into account the indi­vi­du­al gene­tic cha­rac­te­ris­tics, the fin­dings are used preventively.

Endocri­no­lo­gi­cal working groups deal with

  • the cor­ti­sol metabolism,
  • the regu­la­ti­on of growth hormones,
  • poly­cystic ova­ry syndrome,
  • Thy­ro­id dise­a­se and
  • of insu­lin secretion.
