September 6, 2013 (Newswire.com) - HealthyIM K.K. (Tokyo, CEO Michael Bobrove) announces the launch of a new hospital search application that enables people concerned about thyroid disease to find a specialist hospital in Japan. The hospital search service is free of charge and can be accessed at www.healthyim.com
This new hospital search application covers the majority of hospitals and clinics that provide diagnosis and treatment of thyroid disease in Japan.
Ninety percent of thyroid diseases are found in women. Experts say that about one in ten women in Japan are afflicted. Thyroid diseases often go undetected or symptoms are mistakenly attributed to other disorders. Globally, thyroid disease is on the rise and if left untreated can result in serious consequences for some patients.
According to Dr. Koichi Ito, a renowned thyroid specialist and the Director of Ito Hospital in Omotesando, Tokyo, "while the causes of thyroid diseases are relatively unknown, early detection and treatment results in most people leading normal and healthy lives. When a specialist knows what to look for, thyroid disease can be easily diagnosed, most of the time with a simple test. We are very happy to hear about the introduction of this needed search function on HealthyIM as it will make it easier for people to find a thyroid hospital or clinic that meets their needs".
