Thyroid Therapy

Thyroid disorders are very common in women, so common that women are up to eight times more likely to suffer from a thyroid disorder than men are. Your thyroid gland stores and produces hormones that affect the function of virtually every organ in your body which is why its vital to your health to make sure your thyroid is functioning properly.

Diseases in the thyroid gland can either cause it to create too much or too little of the thyroid hormone which takes a toll on your body. When your thyroid is overactive and produces too much of the thyroid hormone, this disorder is considered to be hyperthyroidism. When your thyroid gland isn't functioning properly and doesn't produce enough of the hormone, its considered hypothyroidism. If you are suffering from many of the symptoms below, we suggest scheduling a consultation with our pharmacy to find out what the best method is to test your thyroid hormone levels.
