Internal Medicine

The Department of Internal Medicine provides diagnoses, treatment and care for patients suffering from one of the major common illnesses, such as diabetes, Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD), asthma, stroke, osteoporosis, thyroid and intestinal disorders and liver and blood diseases.

The focus is on emergency treatment and the majority of patients on the wards are admitted via the emergency room.

This Area is divided into five sections, featuring wards, outpatient clinics and in some cases day clinics. These five sections are diabetes and endocrinology, gastroenterology and hepatology, haematology, pulmonary diseases and allergology, neurology and emergency care.

One in four Swedish women over the age of 50 is affected by osteoporosis. At the osteoporosis unit, the patient receives coordinated care, and can be given a medical examination, a bone density appraisal, diagnosis and treatment during one and the same visit. This Area conducts internationally respected research in the treatment of diabetes. Research is also conducted in other fields too, such as hematology and gastroenterology.
