Thyroid Disorders Q&A

What are thyroid disorders?

Thyroid disorders are conditions that affect your thyroid gland, a butterfly-shaped gland in your neck that makes thyroid hormone. This hormone controls your body’s metabolism and numerous other bodily functions. To feel, look, and function at its best, your body needs the right amount of thyroid hormone circulating through it. 

What are the different types of thyroid disorders?

The common forms of thyroid conditions are the following:

  • Hypothyroidism - too little thyroid hormone
  • Hyperthyroidism - too much thyroid hormone
  • Thyroiditis - thyroid gland inflammation
  • Thyroid nodules - bumps on your thyroid gland
  • Thyroid cancer - cancer of the thyroid gland
  • Goiter - thyroid gland enlargement

Risk factors include previous thyroid surgery or treatment, radiation therapy, being female, having an autoimmune disease, and a family history of thyroid disorders. 

If you have one or more thyroid conditions and it causes symptoms, see the Evolve MD Wellness & Aesthetics MedSpa team for an evaluation. 

What are the symptoms of thyroid disorders?

The hallmark symptoms of thyroid disorders include:

  • Fatigue or excessive energy
  • Sleep changes
  • Weight loss or weight gain
  • Thinning hair
  • Changes in menstruation in women
  • Skin changes
  • Cold or heat intolerance
  • Depression
  • Constipation
  • Muscle weakness, aching, or cramping
  • Brittle hair or nails
  • Thyroid bumps
  • Enlarged thyroid gland

The symptoms might be mild, moderate, or severe. Seek treatment at the first sign of a thyroid disorder to reduce your chance of complications or detect thyroid cancer in an early stage.

How are thyroid disorders treated?

Your personalized treatment plan for a thyroid disorder depends on the type of condition you have and its severity. They may ask for your most recent blood test results or have you take a new test to ensure the treatment is effective. You might be a candidate for one or more of the following:

  • Diet changes
  • Dietary supplements
  • IV therapy
  • Hormone replacement

Your provider follows up with you to ensure exceptional health outcomes. If you need to see a specialist for more intensive treatments, the Evolve MD Wellness & Aesthetics MedSpa team refers you.
