Hashimoto's Disease

Hashimoto's thyroiditis, also called Hashimoto's disease, chronic autoimmune thyroiditis, or chronic lymphocytic thyroiditis, is an autoimmune disease. The disorder causes the body's immune system to produce antibodies that attack thyroid tissue and eventually destroy the thyroid gland, leading to hypothyroidism, or the underproduction of thyroid hormone.

Hyperparathyroidism

Primary hyperparathyroidism is when both the parathyroid hormone level and the calcium level are above normal. Two other types of hyperparathyroidism are secondary and tertiary hyperparathyroidism. Tertiary hyperparathyroidism is generally seen in patients after a kidney transplant.

Hyperthyroidism and Graves’ Disease

Hyperthyroidism occurs when the thyroid gland produces too much thyroid hormone. This disorder occurs in about 1% of all Americans and affects women much more often than men. In its mildest form, hyperthyroidism may not cause noticeable symptoms; however, in some patients, excess thyroid hormone and the resulting effects on the body can have significant consequences.

Parathyroid Disorders

Parathyroid disorders lead to abnormal levels of calcium in the blood that can cause brittle bones, kidney stones, fatigue and weakness, and other symptoms.

Primary Hyperparathyroidism

Primary hyperparathyroidism is a condition that causes elevated calcium levels (hypercalcemia) in the bloodstream, due to the parathyroid glands secreting too much parathyroid hormone (PTH).
