You can book an appointment at one of the clinics where the doctor works. For urgent appointments you can send an email.

If the patient has recent exams it is better to bring them to the appointment. If he has a pathology already diagnosed for years, he can repeat the examinations he usually did previously. In any case, the doctor, after an accurate examination, will decide if and which examinations should be carried out to further examine the case.

Each visit consists of an evaluation of signs, symptoms and laboratory-instrumental tests, and therefore is not a simple control of analysis. In case a simple monitoring is needed, the doctor will provide his phone and email.

The doctor is always available to his patients via cell phone and email. Even during vacations and vacation periods.

The doctor himself or some of the structures where he practices his profession are affiliated directly with major insurance companies.

Your endocrinologist is part of a structure where day-hospital and hospitalization can be carried out in agreement with the major insurance companies. In this context, you will be put in contact with other professional figures useful for the framing and treatment of your pathology.

A “lazy” thyroid can certainly be responsible for a few extra pounds. However, it is necessary to have a correct diagnostic evaluation to ascertain possible
endocrine-metabolic imbalances. The patient must however be ready to undertake an integrated path that will go from the identification of any associated pathologies to an inevitable change in lifestyle.

There are no pre-established diets that are valid for everyone. Each patient will undertake his or her own personal path, a personalized diet and physical activity
scheme, a therapy aimed at treating risk factors and associated pathologies.

Any specific tests will help to understand if certain foods interfere negatively with your metabolism. Nothing can be separated, however, from a dietary and lifestyle re-education.

Menopause itself does not constitute a pathology, but rather a territory of integrated endocrine-metabolic changes. Thyroid function screening, weight control,
management of possible osteoporosis and any specific pathology is definitely in order.

Even in cases of perfect thyroid function but in the presence of elevated antibodies, guidelines and clinical experience indicate the use of suppressive thyroid therapy before initiating pregnancy. This is especially true if assisted fertilization techniques are used.

Gynecologic guidelines do not mandate thyroid monitoring in all pregnant patients.
However, endocrinological associations strongly recommend the control of thyroid function given the high risks of hypothyroidism in pregnancy and the risks for the
proper formation of the nervous system of the fetus.
