What differentiates us in Endocrinology
GluCare.Health is the only specialty one-stop shop facility for endocrinology and metabolic diseases in the United Arab Emirates. Every aspect of a patient’s endocrine need is catered by us, and there is no need for multiple visits or referrals.
At GluCareHealth, we are one of the first global providers to use Artificial intelligence (AI) diagnosis to evaluate the sonographic calcifications of thyroid nodules. Our approach of using both an endocrinologist and AI is a more sensitive and objective method than simply relying on conventional methods (physicians alone) in the diagnosis of thyroid malignancies containing microcalcifications. Further investigations might result in a fine needle aspiration biopsy (FNA) which patients can do at GluCare.
Value and Evidence based approach: Unlike most providers, we are a value based outcome driven healthcare organization and we are committed to publishishing our outcomes transparently.
We use digital therapeutics for certain endocrine disorders. This allows us to improve outcomes, faster. An example is show in this link: https://glucare.health/glucares-digital-therapeutic-platform-to-monitor-and-treat-hyperthyroidism/
Frequently Asked Questions
Hormones play a crucial role in regulating our emotions, as they can have a direct effect on our feelings and behaviour. Changes in hormone levels can trigger strong emotional responses, ranging from feelings of joy and excitement to irritability, sadness, and depression. Additionally, high levels of certain hormones, like norepinephrine, can lead to increased arousal and aggression. Therefore, it is important to be aware of how hormones can affect our emotions and take steps to balance our hormones, if necessary.
