The thyroid gland affects almost all of the metabolic processes in the body. Thyroid disorders can range in severity. Some are small and require no treatment, and some can be life-threatening cancer. Most thyroid problems involve the abnormal production of thyroid hormones, which is referred to as hyperthyroidism. Too little hormone production is referred to as hypothyroidism.
The endocrinologists at Chippenham are here to diagnose your condition and provide you with the treatment you need to re-balance your hormone levels.
