Thyroid, hormones

Thyroid

The thyroid is an organ that is essential to life. It produces hormones that play an important role in metabolic processes. These help regulate countless bodily functions.

Thyroid disorders can affect the entire organism. For this reason, if there is the slightest reason to suspect a thyroid disease, immediate and thorough investigation and diagnosis is essential.

Thyroid diseases can often be treated conservatively if discovered and addressed at an early stage. However, our specialists are also here to assist you in cases where surgical intervention is required.

Parathyroid

The parathyroid plays an important role in regulating calcium metabolism. An overactive parathyroid (hyperparathyroidism) leads to an elevated calcium level in the blood (hypercalcemia). This is bad for the blood vessels and can cause kidney stones and stomach ulcers.

Conversely, underactivity (hypoparathyroidism) can cause symptoms arising from a low calcium level (hypocalcemia).
