Q: Can thyroid disease be prevented?
Dr. Donnica: There are no preventive methods, lifestyle changes, or
vaccines for thyroid disease, but there are many strategies for effective management.
Whatever your choice of therapy, remember that it may not be your prescription
for life! You and your physician will monitor your progress and your comfort
level with your treatment plan. If there are factors that change -- including
your symptoms or your level of satisfaction -- discuss this with your physician.
