Hello Dhiya.


Thank you for asking the HealthReplies.com Community.


The thyroid is a gland in the body located in the front of the neck under the Adam's apple, which has several functions. This gland produces three types of hormones, namely Triiodothyronine (T3) and Thyroxine (T4), which play a role in regulating body metabolism, body temperature, heart rate, and so on, and Calcitonin, which plays a role in regulating calcium levels in the blood.


Thyroid disease, are various disorders or problems that occur in the thyroid gland. The main symptom that most patients notice is enlargement of the thyroid gland itself. This enlargement can be followed by a disturbance in the production of its hormones, it can increase (Hyperthyroidism), decrease (Hypothyroidism), or remain normal. Because it can be caused by several things above, patients are advised to see a doctor directly. The doctor will carry out examinations, especially on the neck, and any further tests that are needed such as blood checks (thyroid hormone levels), ultrasound, and so on. Handling will be adjusted to the underlying cause.


One of the complications of thyroid disease is a problem with the heart, otherwise known as thyroid heart disease. High thyroid hormone levels cause the heart to beat faster than normal. A fast heartbeat will stimulate the heart muscle to thicken, resulting in an enlarged heart size. So that in the case of thyroid heart disease, chest examinations are also carried out, both direct physical examination by a doctor and supporting examinations such as X-rays, and so on.


If the complaints you feel are getting annoying, then it's a good idea to visit a doctor to get the right treatment.


This is the information that I can convey, thank you and hope it will be useful.


Regards,


Dr. M. Rizki
