The thyroid gland is located in the neck. It produces hormones which affect all the major body systems such as heart function and circulation, metabolism and the immune system. 4% of the population suffer from over or under-production of these hormones, which can have serious health implications, and many more suffer from other forms of thyroid malfunction. Symptoms of an over-active thyroid include weight loss, fatigue, sensitivity to heat, palpitations and nervousness, and an under-active thyroid can cause weakness, lethargy, weight gain, sensitivity to cold and forgetfulness. A full recovery, however, is possible with early treatment.;This book aims to emphasise the patient as an individual, and it clarifies medical terms. It describes and explains the symptoms of an over- or under-active thyroid gland, what causes the condition, how it is diagnosed and treated and how patients can best manage this disorder and care for their health. Specific problems such as thyroid eye disease and goitre are also covered.
