The thyroid is one of the most important glands in your body. Perfect thyroid function is essential for your general health, metabolism and overall sense of wellbeing. In addition, the thyroid influences almost every other organ in your body. Our diabetes and endocrinology specialists Palm Beach are all board-certified in endocrinology, diabetes and metabolism, and have extensive clinical practice, research, and teaching experience. They all serve on the faculty of the University of Miami.
Thyroid conditions are very common. You may have an underactive thyroid (hypothyroidism) or an overactive thyroid (hyperthyroidism) which can cause a variety of symptoms such as fatigue, changes in weight, issues with bowel habits and changes in your hair and skin. In addition, nodules of the thyroid occur in 4-7% of the general population.
One of the biggest problems in the field of thyroidology is that the range of normal for thyroid function varies so widely. It is essential that your physician takes a careful history and performs a thorough physical examination, along with evaluating special thyroid tests. In doing so, your thyroid function can be accurately assessed and properly treated.
