Laboratory of Endocrineand Metabolic Diseases, Ministry of Public Health

The key laboratory of endocrine & metabolic diseasesby Ministry of Health of China is one of the most importanttraining places for the specialists of endocrinology and metabolismand has held 27 terms of training courses for nation-wideendocrinologist fellows entrusted by the Ministry of Health ofChina. In 2001 the discipline was awarded as Shanghai ClinicalCenter for Endocrine & Metabolic Diseases with a strictassessment by Shanghai municipal govement, which indicated that thedevelopment of the discipline came into a new stage. During thecontinuous development, the discipline has always insisted thatmedical care, medical education and medical research be paid equalattention. The discipline has become one of the most principaldomestic centers of endocrinology and metabolism, formed its owncharacteristics in many aspects and developed closely up to theinternational top level. The discipline has established thediagnosis and treatment criteria and procedures for many endocrinediseases. Some novel therapeutic education protocol has beenpracticed for diabetic patients. Some comprehensive approaches havebeen established to detect diabetic retinopathy , nephropathy,neuropathy and cardiovascular disorders. Continuous blood glucosemonitoring systems and continuous subcutaneous insulin infusion bypump have been applied for intensive care of diabetic patients. Inrecent years, we have have focused on clinical and research worksin endocrine tumors and hereditary endocrine diseases and formednew research orientations.
