Diabetes, Endocrine, Metabolic and Nutritional Diseases

Endocrinology is the specialty / field of medicine that deals with chemical messengers; in short, hormones or molecules of life.

The Diagnosis of Endocrine and Metabolic Diseases is always a challenge. These abnormalities and diseases are manifested differently in every person. People are affected differently due to several factors: genetic background, age, sex, and physiological states such as pregnancy and other diseases present. These factors may change or modulate the appearance and quality of symptoms, at times giving a false appearance of a “normal” situation before any clinical symptoms. [Medically known as subclinical condition.] The earlier the diagnosis, the better the success of Treatment and the prognosis. Therefore, you should be treated as soon as possible to prevent further complications. If you are at risk or know of anyone at risk for Endocrine or Metabolic Diseases, the best medicine is Prevention and/or early Diagnosis.

As of today, for example, we do not have vaccines for Diabetes or Diabetes complications, thyroid diseases, menopause hormone changes, osteoporosis, puberty or growth abnormalities. However, we can help to relieve the symptoms, prevent further damage or even delay the onset of the condition. We strongly believe that you and your health care provider must work as a team, where you participate as a team leader of your own care.

One of our goals and commitments is to support and your family with Education and Information regarding Diabetes, Endocrine and Nutritional Metabolic Diseases and to make you a happier and healthier person by improving your quality of life.
