Mayo Clinic Radio: Thyroid Problems/Bloating/Managing Chronic Pain
The thyroid gland works as one of the body's control centers ... helping to regulate heart rate and metabolism. When your thyroid gland isn't working properly, it can cause a number of problems ... including hypothyroidism and hyperthyroidism. On the next Mayo Clinic Radio, endocrinologist Dr. Marius Stan discusses thyroid disorders and how they're treated. Also on the program, gastroenterologist Dr. Jean Fox explains the causes of bloating. And pain management specialist Dr. Jason Eldrige offers suggestions for treating chronic pain, a condition that affects more than 25 million Americans.
Myth or Matter-of-Fact: Women are far more likely than men to have thyroid problems.
