Thyroid Disease (SMC)
Thyroid gland disease occurs when the thyroid (a small, butterfly-shaped gland in the front of the neck) does not produce the proper thyroid hormone. Or it occurs when an abnormal growth develops, giving rise to a lump or nodule. Thyroid hormones control how your body uses energy. It can affect your breathing, heart rate, weight, digestion, and moods. If left untreated, hyperthyroidism can cause serious problems with your heart, bones, muscles, menstrual cycle, and fertility. However, some treatments can help.
