About the Thyroid
As a small gland situated in the front of the neck, your thyroid plays a pivotal role in many aspects of your health. The thyroid generates hormones that help regulate your metabolism, energy levels, heart function, body temperature, and more. When an oversupply or insufficiency of these hormones is produced, it can result in a thyroid condition, such as hyperthyroidism or hypothyroidism. At Canyon View Ear, Nose & Throat, our experienced medical team specializes in identifying and treating thyroid disorders. If you believe you may have a thyroid condition, we can provide thyroid testing at our office in Cedar City, UT. Contact our team to schedule a visit today.
How the Thyroid Is Treated
Since the symptoms of thyroid disorders can sometimes be mistaken for other problems, it's not uncommon for the condition to go undetected at first. At Canyon View Ear, Nose & Throat, we employ thorough diagnostic testing to help us reach the correct diagnosis and offer the appropriate treatment. First, you'll meet with our provider to discuss your symptoms and health history and then a blood panel will be performed. Once a diagnosis has been reached, a personalized treatment plan will be provided. Typical treatment includes medication, dietary plans, and lifestyle changes. Our expert team will work with you to monitor your symptoms through follow-up visits to our office.
What Are Symptoms of a Thyroid Condition?
Symptoms of a thyroid condition can vary widely depending on whether the thyroid gland is overactive (hyperthyroidism) or underactive (hypothyroidism). In hyperthyroidism, common symptoms include weight loss, rapid heartbeat, sweating, nervousness, tremors, and heat intolerance. Conversely, hypothyroidism often presents with symptoms such as weight gain, fatigue, cold intolerance, dry skin, hair loss, constipation, and depression. Both conditions can also lead to changes in menstrual cycles, muscle weakness, and difficulty concentrating. However, symptoms may vary greatly among individuals, and it's crucial to seek medical evaluation at our office in Cedar City, UT for proper diagnosis and treatment if experiencing any signs of thyroid dysfunction, as early detection and management can help alleviate symptoms and prevent complications.

Are the results of thyroid treatment permanent?
Thyroid treatment must be consistently maintained throughout the rest of the patient's life. This allows us to regulate the body with prescription medications, ensuring the hormones are able to continue at a healthy level.
What are the symptoms of a thyroid disorder?
Thyroid imbalances come in two primary forms: hypothyroidism and hyperthyroidism. People with hypothyroidism often experience tiredness, constipation, dry skin, cold sensitivity, muscular pain, depressive moods, and cognitive haziness. Conversely, those with hyperthyroidism may suffer from anxiety, rapid heartbeat, excessive perspiration, weight reduction, brittle nails, hair thinning, skin sensitivity, and sleep challenges.
What causes problems with the thyroid?
Thyroid disorders arise from various causes, with some more common than others, such as iodine deficiency and autoimmune diseases that attack the thyroid. Thyroid function can also be affected by inflammation, benign nodules, cancerous tumors, radiation therapy to the neck, or previous thyroid surgery. Moreover, certain genetic disorders are known to predispose individuals to thyroid problems.
