This unit offers valid information for different specialists that allows them to tackle the different functional aspects of pathologies related to endocrinology, reproduction and nutrition using an analytical approach.
In the field of endocrine pathologies, the unit routinely performs a large number of serum, plasma and urinary parameters that allow doctors to see that all endocrine glands are functioning properly and, in turn, ensure that all hormonal axes are correct through the use of functional tests.
In the area of reproduction, this unit offers an emergency service for the most significant determinations that provide a very important complementary tool in the interpretation of the ovarian cycle, allowing specialists to establish the moment of insemination or the best time to perform a caesarean section.
