Help and frequently asked questions

My eyes are prominent. Does this mean I have a thyroid problem?

Answer: 

It's true that an overactive thyroid gland can affect the eyes, but large, prominent eyes can be perfectly normal. It's definitely worth visiting your general medical practitioner if you are concerned. There are several factors which are taken into account before arriving at a diagnosis of thyroid problems, but an early diagnosis is important as thyroid problems can be serious but they can also be treated.
