Diagnosis, treatment and prevention

Endocrinology is a medical field dealing with health issues related to endocrine glands (thyroid gland, parathyroid glands, pituitary gland, adrenal glands) producing different hormones.

Increased function of the thyroid gland (hyperthyroidism) and its decreased function (hypothyroidism), as well as its enlargement (struma) are the most common disorders of the thyroid gland.

The most commonly used methods are ultrasound examination, determining blood and urine hormone levels, computer tomography and biopsy of the thyroid gland in indicated cases.

The GHC Clinic Prague provides a comprehensive endocrinological examination. It is most commonly made in cases when the client suffers long-term fatigue, weight loss or increase, skin changes, changed hair growth or enlarged eyes.
