What are Thyroid Disorders?
Thyroid disorders refer to medical conditions that affect the thyroid gland, which is located in the neck and produces hormones that regulate the body's metabolism. Common thyroid disorders include hypothyroidism (underactive thyroid) and hyperthyroidism (overactive thyroid), which can cause symptoms such as fatigue, weight changes, and mood changes.
When is it necessary to see a doctor?
If you have symptoms such as fatigue, weight changes, or changes in mood, it's important to see a doctor to determine if you have a thyroid disorder and receive appropriate treatment to prevent further complications. Treatment for thyroid disorders may involve medication to regulate hormone levels or surgery to remove part or all of the thyroid gland.
