Misdiagnosed Thyroid Condition
The thyroid is a gland that is critical to healthy bodily functions. It is also too often overlooked by doctors who hear complaints or observe health problems such as:
- Difficulty concentrating
- Difficulty swallowing
- Dry skin
- Hair loss
- Heartbeat irregularities
- Unexplained hoarseness
- Weight gain or weight loss
All too often, patients who have such symptoms are ignored when they report the symptoms to their doctors. The result may be that thyroid disease goes undiagnosed, resulting in even more complications. With proper treatment, many thyroid-related problems can be successfully addressed.
Did Your Hypothyroidism, Hyperthyroidism Or Thyroid Cancer Go Undiagnosed?
Types of thyroid disease include:
- Hypothyroidism (when the thyroid does not produce enough hormone; may be caused by thyroiditis or Hashimoto’s thyroiditis)
- Hyperthyroidism (when the thyroid produces too much hormone; may be caused by thyroiditis or Grave’s disease)
- Thyroid cancer (treatable if caught in early stages)
