What Causes Thyroid Disorders?

The thyroid gland is located in the neck and is responsible for the regulation of nutrient processing, heart rates, and other important bodily functions. When there is an over- or under-production of hormones released from the thyroid gland, the chemical balance of the body is disrupted and can cause issues that affect your weight, sleep, mental health, and more. Primary care physicians Dr. Esmilkrys B. Ramirez and Dr. Carlos Mella-Picel diagnose and treat hypothyroidism (too little hormone produced) and hyperthyroidism (too much hormone produced), as well as other conditions of the thyroid gland to give Chicago, IL area patients relief from the symptoms caused by a thyroid disorder.
