General Information

The Diabetes & Endocrine Clinic employs specialist physicians to treat diabetes and endocrine patients with modern and advanced medical equipment.

Initial symptoms of diabetes

  1. Frequent urge to urinate due to excessive glucose in the bloodstream and organs as excessive sugar is filtered out the through urination making the urine sweet. This phenomenon was observed when ants came swarming around urine, resulting in the “เบาหวาน” (Bao Wan) or diabetes.
  2. Frequent nighttime urination
  3. Thirst and large quantities of liquids are consumed frequently.
  4. Fatigue, tiredness, and lack of stamina
  5. Loss of appetite
  6. Weight loss due to unknown causes, especially if one had weighed much more previously, due to the fact that the body is unable to utilize sugar for energy; thus, fat and protein from muscles are then metabolized as substitute.
  7. Infections such as skin or stomach infections occur more frequently than usual; when there is a laceration, the wound heals with difficulty.
  8. Blurred vision resulting in one’s inability to see clearly.
  9. Numbness and lack of sensation due to the effect of diabetes on the nervous system results in damage and reduced ability to perceive sensations.
  10. There may be symptoms of cardiovascular disease and renal diseases.

For Type 2 diabetes there may be some of these symptoms though these symptoms may not appear in all cases

Symptoms of endocrine disorder

  • Symptoms of pineal gland disorders are mostly found in children and often in boys. As the functioning of the pineal gland often involves the development of sexual characteristics, symptoms of pineal gland disorders are pre-mature characteristics of adolescence inappropriate to their age such as the growth of a mustache or in the breast area when they are merely children whether big or small, for instance.
  • Symptoms of pituitary gland disorder greatly vary because the pituitary controls other endocrine glands (such as the thyroid gland, the ovaries or the testicles). These symptoms may include thyroid hormone deficiencies, irregular menstruation, infertility or erectile dysfunction.
  • Thyroid disease symptoms include the enlargement of the thyroid, the appearance of thyroid nodules, thyrotoxicosis, thyroid hormone deficiencies or “hypothyroidism” and thyroid cancer.
  • Symptoms of parathyroid gland diseases are seizures from a low amount of calcium in the blood which often results from the abnormal growth (hyperplasia) of the parathyroid gland cells resulting in excessive production of the parathyroid hormone (Parathyroid hyperplasia) or parathyroid tumors.
  • Symptoms of thymus gland diseases are often caused by thymus tumors (Thymoma) causing pain and tightness around the chest, difficulty breathing and Myasthenia gravis, whose major symptom is muscle weakness throughout the body brought on by physical exertion. But once exertion ceases, the patient returns to a normal state.
  • Symptoms of pancreatic disorders are those of diabetes.
  • Symptoms of adrenal gland diseases are infrequently observed. The disease may arise as a result of abnormal growth (hyperplasia) of the adrenal gland cells, or tumor. Symptoms that may result from the disease are obesity, extreme fatigue, mineral imbalances, or high blood pressure.
  • Frequently found symptoms of ovarian diseases arise from the polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) with common symptoms such as amenorrhea and infertility.
  • Symptoms of testicular diseases are often caused by testicular atrophy; whose symptom is erectile dysfunction.
