The incidence of thyroid disease is steadily increasing throughout the U.S. The expert endocrinologists at Crystal Run Healthcare offer comprehensive services for the diagnosis and treatment of all thyroid disorders, including:

  • Hypothyroidism (underactive thyroid)
  • Hyperthyroidism (overactive thyroid)
  • Thyroid nodules (growths that form lumps in the thyroid)
  • Thyroid cancer

Common thyroid symptoms indicating a problem include:

  • Hyperthyroidism (overactive thyroid): Increased appetite; sudden weight loss (without reduced food intake); nervousness, anxiety, or irritability; sweating; rapid heartbeat; increased heat sensitivity; fatigue; muscle weakness; enlarged thyroid gland (goiter); insomnia,; skin thinning; fine, brittle hair; and changes in menstrual cycle patterns (women). Treatment may include anti-thyroid medications, beta blockers (to reduce heart palpitations), and other medications. In more advanced cases, treatment may also include surgery to remove most of the thyroid gland (thyroidectomy).
  • Hypothyroidism (underactive thyroid): Symptoms often come on slowly and can include weight gain; fatigue; puffy face; constipation; muscle weakness; muscle aches, tenderness, and stiffness; pain or swelling of the joints; increased sensitivity to cold; hair thinning; elevated cholesterol; depression; menstrual irregularities; and others. Hypothyroidism treatment usually involves the use of synthetic thyroid hormone medications to restore adequate hormone levels.
