Thyroid Treatments:

Treatment for thyroid disorders depends on the specific condition. Here are common treatments for various thyroid issues:

This is typically treated with synthetic thyroid hormone medication (levothyroxine) to replace the deficient hormone. The dosage is adjusted based on blood tests to maintain normal hormone levels.

Treatment options include medications to reduce hormone production (such as methimazole, propylthiouracil), radioactive iodine therapy to destroy thyroid cells, or surgery to remove part or all of the thyroid gland (thyroidectomy).

Small, non-cancerous nodules may not require treatment. If they are large or causing symptoms, treatment may include surgery, radioactive iodine therapy, or ethanol ablation (injection of ethanol into the nodule to shrink it).

Treatment may involve surgery to remove the thyroid gland (thyroidectomy), radioactive iodine therapy, thyroid hormone therapy, external beam radiation therapy, or chemotherapy.

Treatment depends on the underlying cause. If the goiter is due to iodine deficiency, iodine supplements may be prescribed. If it’s causing symptoms or is due to an underlying thyroid condition, treatment may include medications, radioactive iodine therapy, or surgery.
