It has the most modern technology in the region for the diagnosis and treatment of endocrine disorders.
We follow a very active study program. Combining clinical and laboratory study and advances in this specialty. The specialized staff provides treatments for a variety of endocrinological problems related to different glands.

To determine the cause of an endocrinological problem.
To confirm an early diagnosis.
Some of the diagnostic tests we use in the Department of Endocrinology at Avicena Polyclinic:
- 24-Urine Collection Test
- ACTH Stimulation Test
- Bone density test
- CRH Stimulation Test
- Dexamethasone suppression test

- Oral Glucose Tolerance Test
- Sperm analysis
- Thyroid scan
- TSH blood test
