Endocrinology services

Specialized endocrinology procedures.

An endocrinologist is a physician who specializes in the study and treatment of diseases related to hormones, metabolism and nutritional problems.

Your primary care physician will refer you to an endocrinologist if you have an endocrine system disorder (such as hypothyroidism), metabolic disorders (such as diabetes or osteoporosis) or nutritional problems (such as obesity or malnutrition).

In addition to providing medical care, endocrinologists also conduct research to better understand how the human body works and the diseases that affect it. Through these studies, they develop new drugs and treatments for hormonal, metabolic and nutritional conditions.

Benefits of having an endocrinology procedure with MDE Care

The benefits of endocrinology are significant and often contribute to the improvement of several health conditions that occur simultaneously in patients with metabolic and hormonal disorders. Hormones control metabolism, reproduction, respiration, growth, sensory perception and movement. A hormonal imbalance is the root cause of various medical conditions.

Its benefits include:

  • Better quality of life: The hormones of the endocrine system control not only the development of various systems of the human body, but also affect mood and such fundamental elements as fertility and reproduction.  Solving endocrine problems at their root allows for greater emotional stability and the prevention of long-term diseases. 
  • Clarity in diagnosis: Endocrine system diseases often affect patients in different ways with disorders such as diabetes, infertility, thyroid disease, among others. Having a clear diagnosis allows us to understand the origin of such diseases and to perform a treatment that can really have efficacy in its results.
  • Prevention: Hormonal disorders are the cause of a wide range of diseases that could have a long-term effect on our health. Diseases such as diabetes, hyperthyroidism, hypothyroidism, polycystic ovarian syndrome, addison’s disease, grave´s disease, among many others. Discovering and treating metabolic alterations can prevent the appearance and development of more complex diseases in the long term.

Testimonials: What do our patients say?

My daughter has received excellent care from Dr. Juan Nicolas. It was very important to have a pediatric dentist from the early years to reduce the natural fears that children have to dentistry and to generate in my daughter a confidence in her doctor. Also that as parents we can be informed every step of the way
Juan David Mejía
Our greatest thanks to Dr. Nicolas, who gave back (literally) the smile to our daughter violet, in short: our daughter had teeth (especially the top) with cavities, since the age of 4 years began to depigment and gradually became black until they almost seemed without teeth. We went to many places but none of them gave us a solution, they only said that we had to operate. As a last option, some friends who we are very fond of recommended Dr. Nicolas, and we decided to start the treatment with him. He was always sincere with us. It took treatment and commitment, but thanks to this today my daughter who is now 7 years old can smile without sorrow, she feels good and her teeth are very healthy. We really thank the doctor and recommend him 1000% 🥰
