Endocrine disorders, specifically thyroid problems, refer to conditions that affect the function of the thyroid gland, resulting in an imbalance of thyroid hormones. Dr. Ankita Mandal, a renowned gynecologist and infertility specialist in Kolkata, has expertise in managing endocrine disorders, including thyroid problems, ensuring comprehensive care for her patients.


What is the role of the thyroid gland?

The thyroid gland, located in the front of the neck, produces hormones (thyroxine or T4 and triiodothyronine or T3) that regulate various bodily functions, including metabolism, heart rate, body temperature, and energy levels.

What are the common thyroid disorders?

Thyroid disorders include hypothyroidism (underactive thyroid), hyperthyroidism (overactive thyroid), and thyroid nodules or goiter. Hypothyroidism is characterized by low thyroid hormone levels, causing symptoms like fatigue, weight gain, and depression, while hyperthyroidism leads to excessive hormone production, resulting in symptoms such as weight loss, rapid heartbeat, and anxiety.

What causes thyroid problems?

Thyroid problems can arise due to several factors, including autoimmune conditions like Hashimoto’s thyroiditis (causing hypothyroidism) and Graves’ disease (causing hyperthyroidism), iodine deficiency, certain medications, genetic factors, and thyroid nodules.

How are thyroid problems diagnosed?

Diagnosis of thyroid problems involves a combination of physical examination, medical history review, blood tests to measure thyroid hormone levels (TSH, T3, T4), and imaging studies like ultrasound or nuclear scans to evaluate the structure and function of the thyroid gland.

How does Dr. Ankita Mandal approach thyroid problem management? As an experienced gynecologist and infertility specialist, Dr. Ankita Mandal adopts a comprehensive approach to managing thyroid problems. She conducts a thorough evaluation, considering the patient’s symptoms, medical history, and test results. Based on the diagnosis, she develops an individualized treatment plan that may involve hormone replacement therapy for hypothyroidism, anti-thyroid medications or radioactive iodine therapy for hyperthyroidism, or surgical intervention for thyroid nodules or goiter. Dr. Ankita Mandal closely monitors her patients’ progress and adjusts the treatment plan as needed to ensure optimal thyroid function.


Dr. Ankita Mandal’s expertise in managing endocrine disorders, including thyroid problems, allows her patients to receive specialized care tailored to their specific needs. If you are experiencing symptoms or have concerns related to thyroid issues, consulting with a qualified specialist like Dr. Ankita Mandal is recommended for accurate diagnosis and appropriate management.
