The thyroid is a butterfly shaped organ that resides at the base of the neck and governs basal metabolic rate.
Common Thyroid Conditions
Thyroid disorders are one of the most common conditions that I see and treat in my clinic. Thyroid dysfunction is often left untreated for a number of years due to inadequacy in standard testing procedures.
Patients may often be misdiagnosed with depression or anxiety and told that they are experiencing symptoms which are a normal part of ageing; or are told to eat less and exercise more, or worse - it's all in their head.
