Our approach to thyroid disorders

Medicine is changing fast, and we believe that our patients should be a part of this, not simply another number in a resource-restricted guideline. When you book a consultation at London Medical, you will see an endocrinologist who specialises in thyroid disorders and puts your individual health interests first. Our thyroid specialists are at the cutting-edge of their field and aware of the latest advances in diagnosis and treatment. 

At London Medical, your consultant will look at your total health and the effects of your thyroid condition and treatments on your overall well-being. Since thyroid disease can have far-reaching impacts on your physical and psychological health, we might refer you for additional treatment in our clinic, such as:

  • counselling with one of our clinical psychologists
  • weight management
  • lipid and cholesterol profiling
  • heart health checkup plan
  • osteoporosis screening

At London Medical, we have the top experts working together for your total care – all under one roof. 

Because symptoms can develop gradually and may be non-specific, many people live with undiagnosed thyroid disorders for many years. When viewed in isolation, symptoms such as hot flushes, low mood, irritability, panic attacks or anxiety might be mistaken by a primary care physician for signs of menopause or as a result of stressful life events. 

 

Our endocrinology consultants are experts in recognising the signs and symptoms of a thyroid disorder. They will listen to your symptoms and personal and family medical history before giving you a detailed examination. We can do a comprehensive thyroid hormone blood screening on the same day as your initial consultation. Once your results have been received, your consultant will take the time to review the findings with you and answer any questions you may have. 

 

Depending on your symptoms, your consultant might also recommend an ultrasound of your thyroid or a biopsy.
