Thyroid Disease

Thyroid disease is said to be the condition that affects the thyroid gland. Thyroid diseases are four types, hypothyroidism (low function) caused by not having enough thyroid hormones; hyperthyroidism (high function) caused by having too much thyroid hormones; structural abnormalities, most commonly an enlargement of the thyroid gland; and tumors which can be benign or cancerous. Main causes of the thyroid disease are muscle cramps, weight gain, slow movement and tiredness. Thyroid diseases can be diagnosed by biopsy, ultrasound and radioiodine scanning.
