Thanks for tuning in to the Armor Men’s Health Hour Podcast today, where we bring you the latest and greatest in urology care and the best urology humor out there.
In this segment, Dr. Mistry and Donna Lee are joined by Dr. Kerem Ozer of Texas Diabetes and Endocrinology. Dr. Ozer talks about the thyroid, an amazing organ responsible for producing your body's hormones and regulating its metabolism. We learn what an endocrinologist does, how the thyroid acts as the thermostat for our bodies, and what are some of the most common thyroid conditions endocrinologists treat.
Our hormones play a huge role in the regulation of our bodies, so it's wise to rule out hormonal imbalance if you're experiencing unexplained symptoms. Indications that you may have an overactive thyroid include anxiety, increase in temperature, heat sensitivity, heart palpitations, heart racing, tremors, shakiness. An underactive thyroid often manifests symptoms like feeling very cold or tired all the time, constipation, dry skin, and lack of concentration or focus. Simple blood tests can help diagnose these and other hormonal abnormalities.
