Who may be at a higher risk of developing a thyroid disease?


Thyroid disease can affect anyone — men, women, infants, teenagers and the elderly. It can be present at birth (typically hypothyroidism) and it can develop as you age (often after menopause in women). A woman is about five to eight times more likely to be diagnosed with a thyroid condition than a man. If you have any of these risk factors, consult a doctor for diagnosis. #ThyroidAwarenessMonth
