What Are Thyroid Disorders?
Thyroid disorders are a common health condition affecting the production of hormones that help regulate metabolism and cardiovascular health, among other bodily functions. The thyroid gland is located in the front of your neck and is an important part of the endocrine system. When it produces insufficient amounts or an oversupply of hormones, a thyroid disorder often results, which can impact your health in many ways. Skilled family nurse practitioner Katherine Johnson can help treat and manage the symptoms of hyperthyroidism, hypothyroidism, and other thyroid conditions. To learn more, or to schedule a thyroid screening, please call Johnson Family Medical in Frisco, TX.

How Are Thyroid Disorders Treated?
Thyroid disorders may be the result of autoimmune conditions, genetics, chemical imbalances, or other issues. Symptoms can include drastic changes in weight, irregular heartbeat, anxiety, and fatigue, among additional effects. Treatment for thyroid disorders is tailored to individual needs and varies according to a person's age, symptoms, conditions, and overall health. In many cases, thyroid conditions are managed through prescription medication and a vitamin and supplement regimen to help regulate proper hormone levels. For some Frisco, TX patients, removing a portion of the entire thyroid gland may be the best course of care.
