We tend to hear of many disorders and diseases attributed to the thyroid and for good reason. Butterfly-shaped and located on the front side of your trachea, this important gland secretes hormones that govern many of your bodily functions including how your body breaks down food for energy usage (metabolism). Thyroid hormones also manage the function of nearly every organ system in the body, oxygen consumption and heat production.
Our endocrinology doctors specialize in detecting thyroid gland disorders and diseases. From hyperthyroidism, when an overactive gland secretes too much hormone, to hypothyroidism, too little hormone secretion, to thyroid nodules and cancer, you can trust our team to examine every symptom thoroughly and work tirelessly to find the answers you need. Additional thyroid treatments include:
- Grave’s disease
