Treatment of Thyroid Disorders
Thyroid hormone is primarily related to the synthesis of protein and metabolic rate. Increase and decrease in the production of thyroid hormone is related to certain diseased conditions.
Hypothyroidism (under-active thyroid) is a disorder that develops due to abnormal low production of the thyroid hormone. The thyroid hormones are produced by the thyroid gland which is located in the lower neck below the area of adam’s apple.
Thyroid hormones are responsible for many development and cellular processes like metabolism inside the body hence their low production affects the body’s normal functioning.
Hyperthyroidism on the other hand is the condition of excessive production of thyroid hormone, which is most commonly a result of grave’s disease, multinodular goitre, adenoma and inflammation.
