PMA, Governor Manila, Dr. Leo Olarte on GMA Ailments

Every Filipino has the right to choose what operation and treatment to do and the right to choose for medical doctors. That is the statement of Philippine Medical Association (PMA) Governor, Dr. Leo Olarte during the interview of Karen Davila in ANC this morning. That issue is connected with the controversial allegation and cases of Electoral Sabotage and of the former President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo (GMA). 

Olarte said it is an insult on PMA base on the statement given by the camp of GMA - “there is no medical specialist here in the Philippines.” Where in fact, he gave one hundred lists of doctors who can help on her worsening medical condition now. On the other hand he (Olarte) pointed out that St. Luke’s Medical Center clearly stated that there is no Bone Mineral Specialist in the country which made him feel contented. But still having to Medical Specialist in the country is not right term to mention. What is hyperthyroidism?; which is the ailment of GMA.

According to http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov, Hyperthyroidism is is a condition in which the thyroid gland makes too much thyroid hormone. The condition is often referred to as an "overactive thyroid.” Symptoms are as follow: Difficulty concentrating, Fatigue, Frequent bowel movements, Goiter (visibly enlarged thyroid gland) or thyroid nodules, Heat intolerance, Increased appetite, Increased sweating, Irregular menstrual periods in women, Nervousness, Restlessness, and Weight loss (rarely, weight gain).
