Thyroid Disorders Management

Thyroid Disorders Management

Thyroid disease is a general term for a medical condition that keeps your thyroid from making the right amount of hormones. Your thyroid typically makes hormones that keep your body functioning normally. When the thyroid makes too much thyroid hormone, your body uses energy too quickly. This is called hyperthyroidism.

The thyroid controls how your body's cells use energy from food, a process called metabolism. Among other things, your metabolism affects your body's temperature, your heartbeat, and how well you burn calories. If you don't have enough thyroid hormone, your body processes slow down.

Hyperthyroidism (overactive thyroid) occurs when your thyroid gland produces too much of the hormone thyroxine. Hyperthyroidism can accelerate your body's metabolism, causing unintentional weight loss and a rapid or irregular heartbeat.

Hypothyroidism occurs when your thyroid gland does not produce enough thyroid hormone. Since thyroid hormones regulate your body's metabolism and temperature, when a deficiency occurs, your body has trouble using energy and staying warm. Common symptoms include fatigue, feeling cold, constipation, and slight weight gain.

The main blood test used to diagnose hypothyroidism is the thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH) test. TSH, which is produced and released by the pituitary gland, rises when it detects low levels of thyroid hormone.

Who is affected by thyroid disease?

Thyroid disease can affect anyone — men, women, infants, teenagers and the elderly. It can be present at birth (typically hypothyroidism) and it can develop as you age (often after menopause in women).
