Feeling tired? Restless? Gaining weight? Loosing weight? Feel like you have cold or heat irritability?
Believe it or not, these are only some of the symptoms that could indicate a potential thyroid disorder. These symptoms don't appear all at once, and they are often confused with other conditions, even by GPs.
Come see our thyroid specialist! Our doctor will carry out a thorough assessment confirming or ruling out thyroid conditions.
The thyroid is a small butterfly shaped gland located in the anterior portion of your neck and it wraps around your trachea (wind pipe). It is an endocrine gland, which means that it secretes hormones directly into your bloodstream.
The thyroid influences the metabolism of your cells by secreting two hormones (T4 and T3), regulating the speed with which your cells work.
There are many disorders that can affect the thyroid and they tend to occur mainly in women. However, anybody can be affected! Children, men, babies, teenagers etc.
