Internal Medicine

Our internists act as central specialists in our center. They have a lot of contact with other departments and referrers. The internists are broadly educated (general internist) and are especially concerned with prevention, diagnosis and treatment of internal organ diseases. Special areas of focus are type 2 diabetes, overweight and high blood pressure, but we also treat patients with hormonal complaints, gastrointestinal and liver complaints, screening for the cause of weight loss/weight changes and general complaints. We do not treat malignancies (cancer), no gastro- and colonoscopy, no type 1 diabetes, no allergies and no acute medicine. We also do not have a hospital admission.

During the consultation, you will have enough time to describe your complaints and discuss the diagnosis and the related treatment plan with the internist after the necessary examinations.

The Internal Medicine Department has partnerships with: Amsterdam UMC, OLVG and ZMC (oncology).

Diabetes is treated by diet and exercise. Medications are often required, sometimes insulin. Sometimes the diabetes can be cured by losing weight! An internist can explain this!
Thyroid cancer is a rare disease, while nodules on the thyroid gland often occur. The chance is very small but sometimes a puncture is needed to exclude cancer.
Yes this is often possible. It depends, among other things, on the medicines that is used and whether the disease is well regulated. We work together with our doctor to increase the chance
Sometimes the symptoms can be reduced by changing medication. Sometimes there is another condition present. An internist can find this out.
Sometimes there is a reason why blood pressure is too high, but often it has to do with lifestyle or medicine intake. An internist can check whether this is the case and if necessary adjust the medication or a plan of action.
