Professor Diethelm Tschöpe: Hormones, metabolism and cardiovascular risk: Personalised treatment for every patient

The complexity of hormone-related disorders and metabolic diseases such as diabetes mellitus calls for a treatment concept that is organised on a cross-departmental basis. This interdisciplinary collaboration of medical experts working in several different disciplines is a feature of the Heart and Diabetes Centre North Rhine-Westphalia in Bad Oeynhausen. A network of specialists spare no effort in ensuring the best-possible prognosis and medical outcome for patients.

Professor Tschöpe, as an endocrinologist you are an expert in diseases of the metabolism and hormonal system. What type of patients do you treat?

Professor Tschöpe: We treat patients, 2,700 of them a year, suffering from a wide range of metabolic disorders. Those afflicted often already have concomitant diseases of the heart, brain, eyes, kidneys, nerves and feet. Our range of services covers everything from interventions in existing underlying conditions, such as obesity, type 1 and type 2 diabetes, and gestational diabetes – a special form of diabetes which first manifests during pregnancy – right through to genetic and secondary diseases. Treatment is also provided for disorders of the thyroid gland, adrenal glands and pituitary gland and diseases of the gastrointestinal tract. Cardiovascular disease is one of the most serious complications of diabetes and should be treated and diagnosed as early as possible using the latest methods available.

What procedures are used for diagnosis and treatment? What can the patient expect?

Professor Tschöpe: It’s not just the departments administering the treatment that decide on the treatment concept. We work closely with clinical institutes specialising in fields such as blood, transfusiology and laboratory medicine, nuclear medicine, radiology and molecular imaging and invasive and non-invasive vascular examination. All these facilities provide a great deal of expertise and experience incorporating the latest scientific findings. Permanent monitoring of blood sugar levels, special gastroenterological tests for disorders of the stomach and intestine; even enzyme-related intolerances can be diagnosed and treated.

Who decides what treatments are possible?How do you collaborate so successfully?

Professor Tschöpe: The decision about which treatment is suitable for which patient should be made on a case-by-case basis. It has to take into account the overall risk to the individual and fit in with their requirements. It depends on their symptoms, prognosis, age, the treatment they are currently undergoing and their likelihood of mortality. This is why the decision on how to proceed involves experts in both the metabolism and the cardiovascular system. Endocrinologists, diabetologists, cardiologists and cardiovascular surgeons work hand in hand at our centre.

One final question, Professor Tschöpe: Why are you attracting increasing numbers of patients from all corners of the globe? What makes the treatment in Bad Oeynhausen so special?

Professor Tschöpe: One reason for this demand is the high increase in the numbers of diabetes cases; 347 million people are affected worldwide. In Germany as well, the number of patients has been on the rise for many years now, which has enabled us to build up a great deal of experience. Every patient at the Heart and Diabetes Centre North Rhine-Westphalia, regardless of whether they come from Germany or abroad, can expect a holistic, caring approach in every department as well as the use of all the latest methods for diagnosis and treatment.

Kunsthofpassage

1000 e 1 passagem

Em Neustadt tem a Kunsthofphpassage, que é uma passagem incrível. Ela tem vários prédios "temáticos". O azul por exemplo quando chove, a água nos canos vira música. Fora os prédios, ainda tem várias lojas bacanas e cafés charmosos para você aproveitar. #youngDresden #mustsees #shopping #cafés

Zwinger Palace

O Chateau de Versailles de Dresden

O Zwinger Palace é um dos melhores exemplos da arquitetura barroca tardia na Alemanha. Construído entre 1710 e 1728 pelo arquiteto Pöppelmann, o Palácio Zwinger foi usado para grandes festas e torneios. Hoje, o complexo barroco de pavilhões, galerias e pátios interiores é a casa de grandes museus e obras. A Madonna Sistina de Rafael você encontrará lá. O acervo de Porcelana tambem é belíssimo. O Arsenal também é muito interessante se você curte trajes e armas. Se você não quiser entrar em nenhum museu, vá pelo menos para andar pelos jardins e admirar o "Kronentor", que é o portão com a coroa.

Asisi Panometer

Dresden : 1945

Setenta anos depois do bombardeio de Dresden, na Segunda Guerra Mundial, um panorama de 360 ​​graus que mostra a cidade destruída foi revelado na cidade. O artista Yadegar Asisi criou uma imagem circular de 100 metros de largura e 30 metros de altura que mostra Dresden após os devastadores ataques aéreos dos aliados. Entre 13-15 fevereiro de 1945, apenas alguns meses antes do fim da guerra, os bombardeiros britânicos e norte-americanos destruíram mais de 90 por cento do centro histórico da cidade, matando cerca de 25.000 pessoas. Mais de 3.900 toneladas de bombas de alto poder explosivo e dispositivos incendiários dizimaram marcos importantes do barroco em uma cidade que é considerada "a Florença do Elba". O panorama, Dresden: 1945, fica aberto de 24 de Janeiro à 31 de maio de 2015, no gasômetro Panometer. http://www.asisi.de/en/panoramas/dresden-1945/photo-gallery.html

A Lady de Dresden

A Igreja da Nossa Senhora de Dresden é um espetáculo de linda. É a igreja que vai te impactar no primeiro minuto que você entrar e ver uma igreja branca, super luminada. Se há um lugar cuja história pode mover-lo às lágrimas, será n'a Igreja de Nossa Senhora. Durante a Segunda Guerra Mundial, a igreja foi bombardeada e ficou em escombros até 1994, quando um programa de restauração foi iniciado. Hoje, é um lembrete dos dias antes da guerra e um dos lugares que você vai ter uma história imparcial sobre a Segunda Guerra Mundial.

Christmas Markets in Cologne

Christmas in Germany

Christmas may be over, but 11 months from now the season will be upon us and you should spend 2015 in Germany! Why? The Christmas season is in Germany is like no other. There is no other place in the world where you can experience countless, and famous, Christmas markets that will without a doubt, put you in the holiday spirit. While the markets are open all day, it’s best to visit at night. Many towns across Germany have decorated the streets and market squares with evergreen-lined stalls, twinkling lights and religious (and not so religious) statues to kick off the holiday season as festively as possible. If you are a foreigner in Germany at this time of year, it's difficult to miss home when Germany puts on an excellent show at Christmas time. No matter what German city you are in, you can find families and friends of all ages, walking around shopping for unique and traditional gifts, sipping on mulled wine and indulging in delicious German food. You will hear laughter amongst the Christmas carols that will make you forget about your toes and fingers tingling from the cold temperature at this time of year. It’s truly a traditional delight for all of the senses. No trip to the German Christmas markets is complete without trying a class of glühwein, which is a combinations of red wine, spices and sugar. This traditional drink will keep you cozy and happy. Hungry? No problem! There are many stalls that sell traditional German Christmas Market food and snacks for you to enjoy such as bratwurst, mutzen, schmachtlappen and reibekuchen. In a world where Christmas present shopping consists of the latest technology and thoughtless gift certificates, it’s nice to be able to find traditional hand carved gifts at several stalls. Not to mention, mountains of oranges and nuts, the original gift that St. Nicholas gave to people hundreds of years ago at this time of year. While many countries around the world celebrate Christmas, no other place does it like Germany. So, if you feel that this time of year has been lacking in holiday spirit, take a trip over to this European country and be reminded what Christmas time is all about.

Canadians First Time at a Traditional Co-ed Spa

Visiting a co-ed spa was a foreign concept to me, being born and raised in Canada. Nudity in my culture is reserved for your own home where some have issues looking at themselves in the mirror. The gym change room is another publicly acceptable nude room, many of us have mastered the art of undressing by using a towel without exposing our private parts. My wife, Kristen, and I walked into that spa and let go of our Canadian mentalities. I undressed in the co-ed change room next to a woman in her 60s. She had kind eyes, a warm smile and no knowledge of nude shame as she stripped down without embarrassment. Kristen and I entered the spa, dropped our towels and were liberated, free for all to gaze upon! There were adults of all ages and body type, casually conversing as if being nude was more comfortable than being clothed. I had to constantly remind myself that people are not judgemental of bodies here, something I have never experienced in North America. Nudity is very much a part of the culture here. This German spa was the first place I have experienced harmony and equality among class, age, sex. Nobody knows whether you walked in with an Armani suit or a ripped t-shirt, you are all equal, beautiful and free. I immediately felt unjudged and part of the community. The architecture and decor of the spa was heavenly. Stone tiles lead the way to a large open room with lounging chairs and a marble swimming pool. The ambiance is zen, with only the sound of calm conversations and light background music. Buddha heads, candles, bamboo designs and waterfalls decorate the many rooms with relaxation and beauty. The outdoor rooftop contained hot tubs and saunas to keep you warm and steamy as well as cold pools and a bucket of snow used to cool your body down before jumping back into the hot tub. I left with my body relaxed, my skin clean, and my mind at peace. I learned that the human body is a beautiful gift which should be appreciated and accepted. Nudity is our original state and should be more widely accepted.

Herrenhauser Gärten Grotto

Niki the St.-Phalle at her best

A couple of years ago a very wealthy friend of mine, who owns an work of art by French artist Niki de St.-Phalle, told me included Hannover in a trip to Europe just to see Nikki's art in town. I had totally forgotten this until I came to Hannover and found out that Niki's works are all over the place. There are three Nanas in the Sculpture Mile downtown and an ancient grotto at the Herrenhauser Gardens was redone by Niki, who filled with her Nanas, a colorful Ganesha and a myriad of kaleidoscopic mirrors. Before her death, she donated her private collection to Hannover's Sprengel Museum, and will appear in the new wing due to open late in 2016.
