Thyroid Diseases
Your thyroid gland is a busy part of your endocrine system – it controls how you burn energy, how you make protein, and how sensitive you are to other hormones – but you probably don’t think much about it unless it isn’t functioning the way it should. Graves’ Disease, goiter, hyperthyroidism, hypothyroidism, and other illnesses can occur when the thyroid does too much or too little. Join us this Monday to learn more about the causes, treatments, and prevention of thyroid diseases. Today’s show is from our archive, so we won’t be taking calls this hour.
