About Thyroid Health

Hypothyroidism means that your thyroid is underactive and is most likely to affect people over the age of 50. Hyperthryroidism means that your thyroid is overactive and is most commonly diagnosed in people between the ages of 20 and 40 years old.

Symptoms of thyroid conditions are non-specific and often begin mildly. Many people with thryoid problems go undiagnosed believing their symptoms to be simply signs of ageing. However, thryoid problems can beome debilitating, severely affecting your quality of life. Both an underactive and an overactive thyroid can cause a swelling of the gland (goitre) but many symptoms can be present without this classic sign.

Thyroid problems can be treated effectively through hormone replacement or antithyroid drugs.

 

Why have a Thyroid Check?

Many of the symptoms of a thyroid disorder are non-specific and can be attributed to other conditions or even no problem whatsoever. it is useful to have a Thyroid Check as a first step to confirm or rule out a Thryroid disorder. We recommend a Thyroid Check if you have 3 or more of the common symptoms.
