CELEBRITY Health

It's estimated that around 20 million Americans have a thyroid disease. It's much more common among women (somewhere between five and eight times more common). Several different disorders can arise when your thyroid produces too much hormone (hyperthyroidism) or not enough (hypothyroidism). Four common disorders of the thyroid are Hashimoto's disease, Graves' disease, goiter, and thyroid nodules. The gland itself is an endocrine gland formed by a thin band of tissue at the front of the neck.
