What We Treat
The Endocrine Calcium Clinic addresses problems associated with the regulation of the body's bone, mineral and hormone functions. Important minerals like calcium, phosphorus and magnesium are critical for the body’s normal functioning, and are often taken for granted as a part of everyday activities. Too much or too little of these minerals can be detrimental to the body’s ability to function properly, and can lead to other serious problems or complications.
Common problems associated with calcium disorders include vitamin D deficiency, intestinal disorders, kidney stones, osteoporosis and parathyroid disorders such as hyperparathyroidism. Additionally, metabolic abnormalities associated with obesity, bariatric surgery and organ transplantation are diagnosed and treated.
