Diabetes is a chronic (long-lasting) health condition that affects how your body turns food into energy. Your body breaks down most of the food you eat into sugar (glucose) and releases it into your bloodstream. When your blood sugar goes up, it signals your pancreas to release insulin.
Thyroid disease is a general term for a medical condition that keeps your thyroid from making the right amount of hormones. Your thyroid typically makes hormones that keep your body functioning normally. When the thyroid makes too much thyroid hormone, your body uses energy too quickly. This is called hyperthyroidism.
Parathyroid glands secrete a hormone called PHT. The PHT regulates the exchange of calcium between the blood and the bones. When the parathyroid gland is over active, too much calcium is pulled out of the bones. This is called hyperparathyroidism or parathyroid disease.
