Thyroid disorder is a widespread problem throughout the world. Near about seven hundred and fifty million people suffer from a thyroid disorder. However, women are more prone to suffer from this disease. Near about 42% of the Indian population are affected by a Thyroid disorder.
The main challenge related to thyroid disorder is, in most cases, the problem cannot be recognised at an early stage. As a result, you do not receive any treatment until the issue becomes severe. But it continues to trigger other related complications in different ways.
What is Thyroid disorder?
The thyroid is a small butterfly-shaped gland. It is situated just below your Adam’s apple. It produces TSH (Thyroid-stimulating hormone), which travels to all the organs of your body through your blood. It has a significant role in your body metabolism. It plays the catalytic role in burning your calories and increasing your heartbeat.
Thyroid disorder is a medical condition that affects the function of your thyroid gland. It does not allow your thyroid from producing the right amount of hormones thereby, making your system imbalanced.
This hormonal disorder not only disturbs your system but also causes numerous chronic diseases.
When you become aware of the problem, it is late already. So, it is best to undergo routine check-up regularly to help diagnose any issue at the earliest.
How to diagnose thyroid disorder?
To diagnose your thyroid disorder, Dr Mukesh Mahajan will ask you to undergo some blood tests. These will help him to identify the problems in his body. Then he will provide a proper examination, to suggest the best treatment for you.
Treatment for thyroid disorder:
The treatment will include -
Oral medication or minor to major surgery or both according to your condition.
In some severe cases, you may need radioiodine therapy or thyroid hormone replacement therapy.
You may require Beta-blockers also to get rid of hyperthyroidism. The treatment for hypothyroidism will include regular use of synthetic thyroid hormone and other supplements.
Along with all these clinical treatments, you need to take care of your proper diet and regular exercise.
What is the cost of hyper and hypothyroidism treatment?
The cost of your thyroid disorder treatment and related complications will depend on several factors. Starting from your health condition, the seriousness of your issue, the types of medication you need and above all, the duration of treatment will affect your cost.
