Thyroid disorders are characterized by either too much or too little production of hormones through the thyroid. The thyroid secretes hormones for various systems in the body such as how fast calories are burned or how fast the heartbeats. There are different thyroid disorders: when the thyroid secretes more hormones, it is called hyperthyroidism, while hypothyroidism is characterized by too little hormones from the thyroid. The clinic provides diagnostic testing, management and treatment of thyroid disorders.
Tests available in the clinic include blood tests which is the most used and a determining procedure, imaging tests, and physical exams. Depending on the hormone levels of the individual as well as the cause of the thyroid condition, the clinic will administer effective approaches that are appropriate for the patient’s condition. Different treatments are to be given for hyperthyroidism and hypothyroidism. Patient education as intervention and prevention for developing the disease is also one of the clinic’s initiatives.
