Types of Thyroid Disorders We Treat
Hyperthyroidism occurs when your thyroid gland produces excessive hormone thyroxine. Hyperthyroidism can accelerate your body’s metabolism, causing unintentional weight loss, a rapid or irregular heartbeat and excessive sweating.
Hypothyroidism is a condition in which your thyroid gland does not produce enough thyroxine hormone. It may not cause noticeable symptoms in the early stages. Over time, untreated hypothyroidism can cause several health problems, such as obesity, joint pain, infertility and heart disease.
Thyroid nodules are solid or fluid-filled lumps that form within your thyroid, a small gland located at the base of your neck, just above your breastbone. Most thyroid nodules are not serious and are not visible or cause symptoms. A small percentage of thyroid nodules are cancerous, and it is vital to confirm that your nodule is not cancerous.
