Thyroid Disease

Thyroid Disease Symptoms and Causes

Thyroid disease causes a wide range of conditions and is frequently overlooked or misdiagnosed. The three most common types of thyroid disease are hypothyroidism (underactive thyroid), hyperthyroidism (overactive thyroid) and thyroid cancer. Women are five to eight times more likely to suffer from thyroid disease. However, nearly half of people living with these conditions are not diagnosed.
