Dedicated Thyroid Disease Care in Provo

Serving Provo and Utah County with Thyroid Care

According to the American Thyroid Association, about 20 million Americans have some kind of thyroid disease and 12 percent of the U.S. population will develop thyroid disease during their lifetime. More shocking still is that up to 60 percent of people with thyroid disease are completely unaware of their condition. Thyroid disease is most common in women who are 5 to 8 times more likely than men to develop thyroid disease.

What is the thyroid gland?

Located at the base of the neck, the thyroid gland controls the body's metabolism by producing the hormones the body needs to function. The hormones produced by the thyroid affect nearly all the metabolic processes in the body, including energy levels and heart rate. When this small, butterfly-shaped gland is not working properly, there are various symptoms that could be an indication that you may have a thyroid problem.

Some of these symptoms include:

  • Sudden weight changes
  • Depression and anxiety
  • Fatigue
  • Muscle and joint pains
  • Neck discomfort / enlargement
  • Changes in hair and skin
  • Bowel problems

There are various forms of thyroid disease and we are well-equipped and experienced in treating the following conditions:

  • Hypothyroidism: a condition that results when the thyroid is not producing enough thyroid hormone.
  • Hyperthyroidism: a condition that results when the thyroid is overproducing too much thyroid hormone.
  • Nodules and Masses: a thyroid nodule is when one section of the thyroid gland becomes swollen. Nodules can be filled with fluid or blood or be solid and can grow large enough to cause trouble swallowing or breathing. The cause of thyroid nodules is not known.
  • Thyroid cancer: A rare form of cancer, thyroid cancer results when there is abnormal cell growth in the thyroid gland. If diagnosed and treated early, patients can do very well. People who have been exposed to a lot of radiation are more at risk of developing thyroid cancer.
  • Parathyroid disorders: Different from the thyroid gland, the pea-sized parathyroid glands produce parathyroid hormone (PTH), which helps balance the body's level of calcium and phosphorus. Caused by gland injury, endocrine disorders or genetic predisposition, parathyroid disorders can lead to hypoparathyroidism or hyperparathyroidism.
