Some 10 million Americans suffer from hypothyroidism, a common thyroid disorder in which the body doesn’t produce enough thyroid hormone, leading to fatigue, lethargy and weight gain.
Endocrinologists in the Sutter Health network specialize in caring for patients with hypothyroidism and other thyroid disorders including thyroid cancer, thyroid goiters and Graves' disease. Although these conditions can be uncomfortable, most are highly treatable.
Endocrinologists provide a variety of services to treat thyroid disorders including:
- Medications — to balance hormonal levels in the thyroid.
- Thyroid Surgery — to treat conditions including cancerous and benign thyroid nodules, large thyroid goiters and overactive thyroid glands.
- In-office thyroid ultrasounds and ultrasound-guided thyroid and parathyroid fine-needle aspiration biopsies.
- Lab tests — to measure hormone levels.
Don’t suffer from a thyroid disorder condition alone. Let one of our expert endocrinologists diagnose your condition and restore you to good health.
