Thyroid Services and Treatments

An improperly functioning thyroid can cause a variety of puzzling symptoms that often are mistakenly diagnosed.  When the thyroid is underactive (called hypothyroidism) people find themselves slowing down, feeling tired, depressed, fuzzy in their thoughts and constipated. They typically gain weight, their skin dries out and they feel cold even when it's warm. An overactive thyroid (called hyperthyroidism) causes weight loss, increased sweating, trouble sleeping, an increased heart rate and feelings of jitteriness.
