Thyroid Disease

About Thyroid Disease

Thyroid disease is one of the most common endocrine disorders. Disorders of thyroid function include hypothyroidism and hyperthyroidism. Thyroid symptoms vary depending on the degree of under- or overproduction of thyroid hormones. Hypothyroidism symptoms (dry, brittle hair; fatigue; cold intolerance) can develop slowly over months or years. Symptoms of hyperthyroidism (increased pulse, irregular rhythm, sweating, weight loss) are generally more overt.
