Thyroid Disorder

  • Aired: 12/03/2009
  • 26:46
  • Rating: NR
Thyroid disorder affects an estimated 20 million Americans and is more prevalent in women than in men. Because thyroid disease frequently masquerades as a variety of medical problems, it is often misdiagnosed, or the symptoms can be so subtle that they go undetected. The good news is that thyroid problems can be managed. We examine the symptoms, diagnosis and treatment of thyroid disorders.
