A thyroid condition left untreated can wreak havoc with your life.  The symptoms you experience may vary, depending upon the form your thyroid condition takes. Patient First Wellness Center, a discount Las Vegas medical center wants you to know that you should go to a medical clinic for a diagnosis of a possible thyroid condition if you experience any of the hpothyroid or hyperthyroid symptoms, especially if you have a family history of thyroid disease.

Las Vegas doctors advise that if you are suffering from hypothyroid, your thyroid gland is not producing enough of the thyroid hormone your body needs to function properly. In hyperthyroidism, your thyroid gland is overactive and produces too much of the thyroid hormone. Women are about eight times more likely than men to suffer from hyper- and hypo- thyroid conditions.

Possible causes of either hypo- or hyperthyroid include the following:

  • Birth defects
  • Autoimmune diseases
  • Goiter
  • Cancer
  • Surgery involving the thyroid gland
