The thyroid gland is critical to the proper regulation of cells throughout the body, particularly those that affect the brain, bones, heart, kidneys, liver and skin. Every Questcare Medical Clinic location offers treatments for several kinds of thyroid issues, from relatively minor problems such as insufficient production of hormones all the way to cancer.
There are many thyroid problems that can be successfully managed and treated if they are accurately diagnosed. However, in some instances, surgery may be required.
Medication is usually given in order to replace hormones that the gland may not be able to produce in sufficient amounts. There are, however, certain symptoms of thyroid problems that can be treated with medication as well, such as rapid heart rate.
If a patient has a problem such as a goiter or cancer, then surgery will be needed. If the gland needs to be entirely removed, the patient will need to take a synthetic hormone for the remainder of his or her life.
Treating Thyroid Issues
The experts at each Questcare Medical Clinic location are experts with the different options that are available in regard to thyroid treatment. High cholesterol, for example, has been linked to thyroid problems, but treatment can lower cholesterol and help improve heart health. In addition, medications can help correct weight issues by helping the body to more effectively regulate metabolism. There are even methods of thyroid treatment that can improve mood and cognition as well as increase energy.
