Thyroid Specialist In Gurgaon
Thyroid dysfunction is a common issue among many women. It is estimated around 45 million people suffer from thyroid disorders in India. The small butterfly-shaped gland present in the front region of the neck is the “Thyroid,” which produces thyroid hormone that regulates metabolism and other vital body functions.
Disorder of the thyroid gland can be due to,
- Excess thyroid hormone production, causing hyperthyroidism or
- Low thyroid production, causing hypothyroidism.
Other thyroid disorders include Hashimoto’s thyroiditis and thyroiditis, which require proper treatment, management, and prevention.
The best thyroid specialist can comprehensively diagnose the precise cause of thyroid problems and help find the right treatment. Connect with Dr. Hemi Soneja, endocrine, and thyroid specialist in Gurgaon, for your thyroid concern.
Causes Of Thyroid
Hyperthyroidism and hypothyroidism are two forms of hypothyroidism that can affect a person. Hypothyroidism is when the thyroid gland produces low thyroid hormones. And in hyperthyroidism, the thyroid gland makes more than the required amounts of thyroid hormone.
Both hyper and hypothyroidism affect the functioning and working of the thyroid gland. A thyroid specialist in Gurgaon or elsewhere can help you find the exact cause of thyroid disorders affecting you.
Some causes of hypothyroidism or underactive thyroid are:
An autoimmune, painless disorder where the body’s immune cells attack to damage the thyroid gland.
Inflammation or swelling of the thyroid that can lower thyroid production.
A temporary condition affecting pregnant women after childbirth.
Deficiency of iodine can affect thyroid production.
Improper or partial thyroid functioning:
Non-functioning or partial thyroid gland functioning can cause low thyroid levels or hypothyroidism.
Some causes of hyperthyroidism include:
- Grave’s disease: An autoimmune condition developed when the immune system produces antibodies, causing an overactive thyroid or enlarged thyroid (Goitre).
- Nodules on the thyroid gland: a single nodule or several nodules on the thyroid can cause the thyroid to make more hormones causing an overactive thyroid.
- Thyroiditis: A temporary condition that can last a few weeks and cause the thyroid to release excess hormones stored within.
- Iodine increase: Increased iodine in the body can lead to hyperthyroidism.
Symptoms Of Thyroid
Both hyper and hypothyroidism can affect the body, manifesting a range of symptoms.
Here are the signs of hypothyroidism to look out for.
- Fatigue or excessive tiredness,
- Unexpected weight gain,
- Issues with memory and forgetfulness,
- More frequent menstruations with heavy flow,
- Coarse hair that gets dry and frizzy,
- Hoarseness of the voice,

1. Physical Exam:

2. Blood Examinations:
Blood tests measure the circulating TSH, T4, Free T4, T3, Free T3 hormone, thyroglobulin antibodies, microsomal antibodies, thyroid receptor antibodies, calcitonin, and thyroglobulin. This helps diagnose hyperthyroidism, hypothyroidism, Grave’s disease, Hashimoto’s disease, Goitre, thyroiditis, and thyroid cancer.
3. Imaging Tests:
Imaging scans check the thyroid gland's structure, shape, and size through ultrasound. The high-frequency sound waves probe the regions around the thyroid. Nuclear Medicine Scan is a specialised scan that creates pictures or images using small amounts of radiation. This imaging scan is done to assess thyroid gland functioning and evaluate overactive thyroid or hyperthyroidism.
