With thyroid disease, thyroid hormones are over-produced or under-produced.  Diseases of the thyroid gland include:
  • Hypothyroidism – Not enough thyroid hormone is produced
  • Hyperthyroidism – Too much thyroid hormone is produced
  • Grave’s disease – An autoimmune disease that causes the thyroid to produce too much thyroid hormone, causing hyperthyroidism
  • Hashimoto’s disease – An autoimmune disease that causes the thyroid to produce too little thyroid hormone, causing hypothyroidism
  • Goiter – Enlargement of the thyroid gland
  • Thyroid nodules – Growth of the thyroid tissue causing circular or oval-shaped lumps in the thyroid gland
  • Thyroid cancer – Growth of the thyroid gland, either goiter or thyroid nodules, that becomes cancerous
 Abnormal thyroid function can cause discomfort and symptoms such as tiredness, irritability, weight loss or gain, and inability to sleep.
