Thyroid

Thyroid imbalance is a condition treated by endocrinologists and is one of the most common problems in the community.


The thyroid affects many body function but one of its main role is to regulate metabolism.


Therefore, someone with an underactive thyroid often presents weight gain, tiredness and feeling cold. Conversely, an overactive thyroid can lead to weight loss, rapid heart rate, anxiety and heat intolerance.


The available treatments for both under and overactive thyroid problems are effective and safe. Underactive thyroid conditions are often treated with thyroxine. Overactive thyroid conditions can be treated with regular tablets, radioactive iodine or surgery. The choice of treatment of treatment depends on the underlying thyroid disease and often an informed discussion between doctor and patient.
