General Thyroid Disorders Information
The thyroid gland produces hormones that enable the body to maintain cell function in the body. The thyroid gland is located at the base of the throat. The thyroid hormones regulate metabolism, development, growth and the activity of the nervous system. There are two types of thyroid disorders: Hyperthyroidism and Hypothyroidism.

Hyperthyroidism is a disorder that occurs when the thyroid gland produces too much thyroid hormone. This results in an overactive metabolic state, which means all of the body's process go faster than needed.

Hypothyroidism is a condition that occurs when the thyroid gland produces insufficient amounts of thyroid hormones in the body. If the gland does not secrete enough of the hormone, hypothyroidism is the result.

Possible Causes of Thyroid Disorders
Most cases of thyroid disease result from an autoimmune disorder, in which the body's immune system attacks the thyroid gland. Genetic factors, hormonal disturbances elsewhere in the body, surgery, radiation and medications are other possible causes. Insufficient amounts of iodine in the diet can lead to hypothyroidism.

Possible Symptoms of Thyroid Disorders
The main symptom of thyroid disorder is a bulging at the bottom of the throat. Symptoms of hyperthyroidism include nervousness, irritability, increased perspiration, insomnia, fatigue, weakness, hair loss, separation of the nails, hand tremors, intolerance of heat, rapid heartbeat and sometimes protuding eyeballs. Symptoms of hypothyroidism include fatigue, loss of appetite, excess weight, painful menstruation, muscle weakness, dry skin, yellow coloration in the skin, hair loss, recurrent infections, constipation, slow speech, myxedema (drooping and swollen eyes) and depression. Symptoms of either condition can appear very quickly or they may develop gradually, often mimicking long-term mild depression.

Possible Lifestyle Changes for Thyroid Disorders
Be sure to check the base of the neck regularly for irregular bulging that may signal thyroid problems. For more specific information for hyperthyroidism and hypothyroidism, see the links below.
