What is thyroid disease?

Thyroid disease can manifest a variety of symptoms depending on whether the thyroid is overactive or underactive. Common signs of hypothyroidism include fatigue, weight gain, cold intolerance, and depression, while hyperthyroidism might present with weight loss, anxiety, increased heart rate, and heat intolerance. Both conditions can lead to more severe health problems over time, making it crucial to recognise the symptoms early and seek appropriate care.

At HelloGP, we’re dedicated to providing personalised, compassionate care for individuals with thyroid disease. We begin with a detailed assessment, including thorough testing to determine the nature and extent of your thyroid condition. Our experienced team will then work with you to develop a tailored treatment plan, which may include medication, lifestyle modifications, and regular monitoring to manage your condition effectively.
