What is thyroid disease?

It is a broad term for hyperthyroidism and hypothyroidism. When the gland produces too many hormones or too less hormones, it causes a wide range of symptoms that need treatment.

How to treat Thyroid?

Hypothyroidism can be treated with medicines that replace the hormones produced and increase the level of thyroxine in the blood. Whereas, hyperthyroidism can be treated with thionamides medication, which stops the excess production of hormones.

Thyroid Cancer

Females are more susceptible to thyroid cancers as compared to women. The ratio is approximately 72% cancers in females and 28% detected in males.

Almost 60%

of those with thyroid diseases are not aware that they have hormonal issues. Diagnosing thyroid is an important step towards treatment.

Expert’s Opinion on Thyroid Health

“Your thyroid is a small, butterfly-shaped gland located at the base of your neck, just below your Adam's apple. Though it's small, this gland plays a big role in your health.The thyroid's job is to make thyroid hormone, which is secreted into the blood and then carried to every tissue in the body. Thyroid problems can occur when the gland doesn't produce enough hormone (hypothyroidism) or produces too much (hyperthyroidism). These conditions can be caused by several different factors!”
