Health – Hotspot Krumpendorf: An exciting lecture about the thyroid gland and vitamin D


Die Healthy village of Krumpendorf invited together with Krumpendorf Pharmacy and society Genericon for an interesting lecture on this topic “Thyroid and Vitamin D in the Time of COVID-19”.

The speaker was an internationally recognized specialist in the field of thyroid disease and specialist in internal medicine, Mgr Lecturer Dr. Karen Amrein to be won. She gave a comprehensive insight into the topic, the functions of the thyroid gland, diagnoses and therapy options. Thyroid disease affects a large number of people and requires regular monitoring (usually every 1-2 years).

In addition, several studies have been presented that emphasize the importance of vitamin D. Vitamin D deficiency affects about 40% of the total population in Europe. Vitamin D is important for many organ systems, so it makes sense to take vitamin D, especially in the winter months.
