Endocrinology

This field consists of thyroid dysfunction, disorder of the adrenal glands (Cortisol), of pituitary glands and of sexual hormones.

Thyroid dysfunctions are common in the Mediterranean region, quite possibly due to high levels of Iodine in water, air and many foods.
Especially hyperthyroidism is seen most commonly, with agonizing discomforts, often wrongly described as jumpiness or over-excitement.

Also, parts of Anti-Aging and lifestyle therapy are considered to be in the field of endocrinology. Here the main reasons are less oriented towards treating existing diseases, but more directed towards mental state, quality of life and individual effectiveness. This is done by thoroughly examining the hormonal circumstances and – if possible and reasonable – their gentle adjustment.
