Your thyroid problems can have many detrimental effects on your life. Read on to understand your thyroid and how Dr. Cook can help you with your thyroid problems.

Your thyroid is the butterfly-shaped gland found on the lower front of your neck. In its normal size, your Thyroid cannot be felt. Your Thyroid secretes hormones that influence your growth and metabolism.

Thyroid Problems like Hyperthyroidism are caused by an excess of thyroid hormones.

All kinds of hyperthyroidism occur because of an excess of thyroid hormones.


Grave’s disease happens when you produce too much thyroid hormone.

Toxic Adenomas are when nodules develop in your Thyroid gland and secrete thyroid hormones that upset your natural chemical balance.

Subacute thyroiditis is the inflammation of your thyroid that causes the gland to leak out excess hormones, which causes temporary hyperthyroidism.

Cancerous growths or Pituitary gland malfunctions may also be a cause of hyperthyroidism.


Hypothyroidism is the underproduction of your thyroid hormones. Your body’s production of energy requires a certain number of thyroid hormones. Lower hormone production leads to lower energy levels.


Hashimoto Thyroiditis is known as an autoimmune disorder that causes your body to attack your thyroid tissue until it dies and does not produce hormones anymore.


Thyroid gland removal through surgery and chemicals.


Iodide exposure from sinus and cold medicines, heart medicine, certain contrast dyes before X-rays may increase your chances of getting hypothyroidism when you already had past thyroid issues.
