What are Thyroid Disorders?

Thyroid disorders are a prevalent health condition that affects hormone production, crucial for regulating metabolism, cardiovascular health, and various bodily functions. The thyroid gland, located in the front of the neck, plays a vital role in the endocrine system. Imbalances in hormone levels, either insufficient or excessive, often lead to thyroid disorders, which can have diverse impacts on overall health. If you are dealing with hyperthyroidism, hypothyroidism, or any other thyroid condition, Dr. Yehuda Handelsman and the team at Yehuda Handelsman, M.D. can provide assistance in treating and managing symptoms. To obtain more information or to schedule a thyroid screening, please contact our office in Tarzana, CA.

How Are Thyroid Disorders Treated?

Thyroid disorders can arise from autoimmune conditions, genetic factors, chemical imbalances, or other underlying issues. Common symptoms encompass significant weight fluctuations, irregular heartbeat, anxiety, fatigue, and various additional effects. The treatment approach for thyroid disorders is personalized, considering factors such as age, symptoms, overall health, and underlying conditions. Prescription medication and a tailored regimen of vitamins and supplements are often utilized to regulate hormone levels effectively.

Thyroid nodules, including thyroid cancer, are also a significant aspect of thyroid disorders. Thyroid nodules are abnormal growths or lumps that form within the thyroid gland. While most thyroid nodules are benign (non-cancerous), a small percentage can be cancerous.

In certain cases for patients in Tarzana, CA, surgical removal of a portion or the entire thyroid gland may be recommended as the optimal course of treatment.
