Fatigue, depression, anxiety, weight gain, muscle weakness – could your thyroid be the cause? Thyroid disease is more common than diabetes or heart disease. It is a fact of life for as many as 30 million Americans, and affects women more than men.
January is Thyroid Awareness Month. Get a head start on learning about your thyroid and the different thyroid conditions that can impact your health, such as hyperthyroidism, hypothyroidism, goiter and thyroid cancer. What should you be looking out for?
Find out with Shane Y. Morita, MD, MS, PhD, FACS, endocrine and oncologic surgeon, and Queen’s Surgical Oncology Program Director. Dr. Morita will also demonstrate how to properly examine the thyroid. Hear from people with thyroid conditions who will share their experiences.
