The parathyroid is made up of four pea-sized glands in the neck. It controls hormones that play an important role in keeping the balance between calcium and phosphorous in the body. An imbalance in these hormones, called hypoparathyroidism (too little) or hyperparathyroidism (too much), can cause problems with bones, muscles, skin, and nerves. While there is no approved hormone replacement therapy for hypoparathyroidism, the goal of treatment is to restore calcium, magnesium, and phosphorous levels to normal. Hyperparathyroidism can be treated with medication or surgery.

Women with PCOS may develop numerous ovarian follicles and fail to regularly release eggs, which causes hormonal imbalances and metabolic problems, leading to symptoms such as infrequent or prolonged menstrual periods, excess male hormone levels, and infertility.

Puberty is the physical process a child's body goes through as it matures into an adult body. During puberty, the body grows faster than any other time during a person's life, except for infancy. It is also during this process that the body becomes capable of sexual reproduction. While children develop at different rates, most will go through puberty between the ages of 8 and 13. A pubertal disorder is when this process doesn't occur as it normally should. There are several forms of pubertal disorders, including delayed puberty, precocious puberty, and contrasexual pubertal development. The best course of treatment is based on the underlying cause of the pubertal disorder.

Thyroid disorders can affect your weight, energy levels, muscle strength, skin, memory, cholesterol and heart rate.
