Thyroid Conditions

The thyroid gland influences most of the metabolic processes in the body. Thyroid problems can range from small to life threatening.

So what causes thyroid problems? A condition called hyperthyroidism, which is the overproduction of the thyroid hormone.It can occur in several ways:

  • Graves’ Disease

The production of too much thyroid hormone

  • Toxic adenomas

Nodules develop in the thyroid gland and secrete hormones, which upsets the body’s chemical balance.

  • Subacute thyroiditis

This is inflammation of the thyroid, which causes the gland to ‘leak’ excess hormones. This condition is temporary and usually lasts for a few weeks or months.

Other conditions may also be caused by Hypothyroidism, which is the underproduction of thyroid hormones. Your body needs a certain amount of the hormone to function properly, so a drop in hormone production leads to lower energy levels. Some causes of Hypothyroidism are:

  • Hashimoto’s thyroiditis

This is an autoimmune disease where the body attacks the thyroid tissue. The tissue eventually dies and stops producing hormones.

  • Removal of the thyroid gland

If the thyroid gland may have been surgically destroyed removed or chemically

  • Exposure to excessive amounts of iodide

Too much iodide in your system could damage your thyroid. You will be at greater risk if you already have a thyroid problem.

Although the effects and symptoms may be unpleasant or uncomfortable, most thyroid problems can be effectively managed if properly diagnosed and treated.

What People Are Saying About Us

I’d like to convey to you how wonderful the aide Afia is for my mother’s care. She has been with her since last January and has become more than just a caregiver. She truly “cares” and is skillful in her abilities. My mom has had several health situations and her current health has improved to the best she has been in several years. Both her doctor and my family attribute a large part of that to Afia’s care. She is diligent about her diet and sleep patterns, and her “toileting” issues. All of this has contributed greatly to my mom’s overall improved health and her peace of mind as well as our family’s peace of mind. We cannot say enough about her. We are also very satisfied with Executive Care all the way around, from the billing department and everyone we speak with on the phone, very courteous and professional.

It’s almost five years since we have been receiving caregivers through Executive Care, and I would like to take this transitional period to express our appreciation for the services you have provided thus far. We are particularly appreciative of the special attention and care Lili has given to our case. Lili has been very sensitive to our particular needs and it has been and remains important to us to have consistency in the arrangements by having Lili as our go-to person in light of Dr. E’s special needs. It is apparent that Lili has many other important responsibilities, so we wanted to thank Executive Care and Lili for the efforts she has made on our behalf.
Judge Naomi E
I have had business dealings with Executive Care for some time now and have invariably been very satisfied. The personnel have been considerate, trustworthy, capable and always responsive. They have provided a genuine physical and emotional lift to the patient, in my case an elderly, frail sister. I do not hesitate to recommend the organization for the services rendered.
