Total thyroidectomy causes postsurgical hypothyroidism (HypoT). Besides HypoT, patients may also develop hypoparathyroidism (HypoPT).The aim of the study was to assess Quality of Life (QoL), muscle function, and bone indices in patients with postsurgical hypothyroidism and hypoparathyroidism (HypoT+PT) as compared to patients with postsurgical HypoT and healthy controls.Age and gender matched patients on treatment for HypoT+PT and ...
