Thyroid Awareness Month

Facts about the Thyroid Gland and Thyroid Disease
The thyroid is a hormone-producing gland that regulates the body’s metabolism—the rate at which the body produces energy from nutrients and oxygen—and affects critical body functions, such as energy level and heart rate.  The thyroid gland is located in the middle of the lower neck.  Although the thyroid gland is relatively small, it produces a hormone that influences every cell, tissue and organ in the body.

  • Hypothyroidism is a condition where the thyroid gland does not produce enough thyroid hormone. Symptoms include extreme fatigue, depression, forgetfulness, and some weight gain.
  • Hyperthyroidism, another form of thyroid disease, is a condition causing the gland to produce too much thyroid hormone. Symptoms include irritability, nervousness, muscle weakness, unexplained weight loss, sleep disturbances, vision problems and eye irritation.


Prevalence and Impact of Thyroid Disease
More than 12 percent of the U.S. population will develop a thyroid condition during their lifetime.

  • An estimated 20 million Americans have some form of thyroid disease.
  • Up to 60 percent of those with thyroid disease are unaware of their condition.
  • Women are five to eight times more likely than men to have thyroid problems.
  • One woman in eight will develop a thyroid disorder during her lifetime.

National Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Breast cancer is the most common cancer in American women, except for skin cancers. Currently, the average risk of a woman in the United States developing breast cancer sometime in her life is about 13%. This means there is a 1 in 8 chance she will develop breast cancer. This also means there is a 7 in 8 chance she will never have the disease. 


Get basic information about breast cancer, such as what it is and how it forms, as well as the signs and symptoms of the disease.   Visit the American Cancer Society for more information.

Medicare Annual Enrollment Period

What is the Medicare Open Enrollment Period?

Medicare health and drug plans can make changes each year—things like  cost, coverage, and what providers and pharmacies are in their  networks. October 15 to December 7 is when all people with Medicare can change their Medicare health plans and prescription drug coverage for the following year to better meet their needs.


How do people know if they need to change plans?

People in a Medicare health or prescription drug plan should always  review the materials their plans send them, like the “Evidence of  Coverage” and “Annual Notice of Change”. 

If their plans are  changing, they should make sure their plans will still meet their needs  for the following year. If they’re satisfied that their current plans will meet their needs for next year and it’s still being offered, they don’t need to do anything.


When can people get information about next year’s Medicare plans?

Information for next year’s plans will be available beginning in October.
