Thyroid Disease

Thyroid disease will affect 27 million Americans each year. More than half of people living with thyroid disease go undiagnosed. Thyroid disease affects almost every aspect of health, so understanding more about the thyroid, and the symptoms that occur when something goes wrong with this small gland, can help you protect or regain good health.

The Thyroid is a gland that controls key functions of your body. Disease of the thyroid gland can affect nearly every organ in your body and harm your health. Women have a seven times increased risk for developing thyroid problems. A woman faces as high as a one in five chance of developing a thyroid disorder during her lifetime. This risk increases with age and for those with a family history of thyroid problems. In most cases, treatment of thyroid disease is safe and simple.
