Not only do we treat overweight and obesity nutritionally, we also provide nutritional support for metabolic diseases such as diabetes, cholesterol and triglyceride problems. We also give nutritional support to a wide range of diseases from cancer to osteoporosis.
Endocrinology includes the study and treatment of all diseases derived or associated with hormonal alterations and glands of internal secretion (pituitary, thyroid, pancreas, suprarenal). But also, it covers the treatment of nutritional alterations such as obesity, and the nutritional approach of eating behavior disorders.
Even though it is a relatively young medical specialty, endocrinology has recently taken on a key importance when dealing with such frequent and relevant clinical situations as diabetes and other metabolic disorders and their prevention (metabolic syndrome, hyperlipidemia, hyperuricemia), hormonal alterations associated with aging and its treatment (osteoporosis, sarcopenia, hormonal deficits) or the increasingly common problems of overweight and obesity associated with a gradually less healthy lifestyle.
