My Heath Journey with Hyperthyroidism Disease

At the age of 18, it was discovered that one of my thyroids was bigger than the other; thyroids are a butterfly-like hormone-metabolism muscle that lays across your neck, underneath the apple. At the time, it was very small, but still something to look out for.

 

Over the past 10 years I have done bloodwork testing and monitored the growth and changes of my thyroids.

 

Most recently, I did a monogram and blood test for my thyroids, and it was discovered that I have Hyperthyroidism Disease. According to MayoClinic.org, “Hyperthyroidism (overactive thyroid) occurs when your thyroid gland produces too much of the hormone thyroxine”.

 

There are four types of Thyroid Cancer: Papillary Thyroid Cancer, Follicular Thyroid Cancer, Medullary Thyroid Cancer, and Anaplastic Thyroid Cancer

 

I will be documenting and blogging my progress, and any information and tips I will share. Follow my journey with me, as we explore how thyroids are an important component in the human body.
