Thyroid Disorders

Thyroid disorders can range from a small, harmless goiter that needs no treatment to life-threatening cancer.

The thyroid gland helps to control our metabolism. It sits at the base of our neck and produces the thyroid hormones thyroxine. The main forms or thyroxine are known as T4 and T3.

Thyroid hormones are necessary for the cells in our body to work correctly. Our body needs just the right amount of thyroxine in every cell of our body, every second of every day. Sometimes things go wrong and the thyroid gland starts to become overactive (working too fast) or most commonly underactive (working too slowly). This can be caused by an autoimmune disease or it can be unrelated to the immune system.
