• Thyroid

    The butterfly-shaped gland at the base of the neck is called the thyroid. The thyroid gland is a crucial part of the body’s endocrine system. It is responsible for secreting hormones to coordinate body functions like regulating the metabolic rate. However, in most cases, hormonal imbalance can trigger thyroid disorders disrupting the way the gland functions. This is when it is best to consult a thyroid specialist and seek immediate treatment.

    Common Thyroid Problems

    Though the causes of thyroid disorders are largely unknown, the imbalanced hormonal levels can trigger some thyroid-related problems. The most common among them are hyperthyroidism and hypothyroidism.

    Hyperthyroidism

    Hyperthyroidism occurs when the thyroid gland produces hormones in excess. This is quite common in patients with Grave’s disease. Besides this, cancerous tumors and nodules can also result in an overactive thyroid gland. Among the most prevalent symptoms of hyperthyroidism are:

    • Anxiety
    • Racing heartbeat
    • Unexplained weight loss
    • Insomnia
    • Brittle nails and hair
    • Thin skin
    • Restlessness
    • Increased perspiration

    Hypothyroidism

    Hypothyroidism occurs when the thyroid fails to produce an adequate amount of hormones. It may be triggered by

    • Hashimoto’s disease
    • Damage to the thyroid due to radiation treatment
    • Surgical gland removal

    Symptoms of hypothyroidism include:

    • Fatigue
    • Depression
    • Dry skin
    • Sudden weight gain
    • Constipation
    • Memory problems

    Comprehensive Diagnosis and Individualized Treatment

    Compared to men, women are eight times more likely to have thyroid disorders. However, timely diagnosis can make all the difference. At Windermere Medical Group, to diagnose the problem, our specialists:

    • Use the patient’s medical history
    • Perform physical examination
    • Conduct ultrasound and biopsy (if and when needed)
    • Perform thyroid tests to measure the thyroxine and thyroid-stimulating hormone. A high level of TSH and low thyroxine indicates the patient has hypothyroidism, while a low level of TSH and high thyroxine indicates hyperthyroidism.

    Based on the diagnosis, our specialist recommends the ideal treatment. Patients with hypothyroidism may be prescribed medication for hormonal rebalance while those suffering from hyperthyroidism, may be recommended anti-thyroid or radioactive iodine medication.

    Please note that treatment and medication dosage vary from patient to patient, depending on the cause of the dysfunction and their medical history.

    So, if you suspect you may be suffering from thyroid dysfunction, schedule an appointment with our specialist now.
