Thyroid Diseases Life Insurance

Life insurance for thyroid diseases involving the parathyroid gland is readily insurable for most people.

Thyroid Diseases Overview

Common conditions according to EndocrineWeb include hyperthyroidism, hypothyroidism, goiters, and thyroid nodules.

Most controlled endocrine-related conditions have minimal impact on high-risk underwriting.


Your thyroid gland produces too much hormone when you have hyperthyroidism.

Your thyroid gland lowers your TSH and elevates your T3 and T4 results.

Typical treatment includes thyroid medication.

A common cause of hyperthyroidism is Graves’ disease.

Graves’ causes an autoimmune stimulation of the thyroid gland.

The preferred best rates are available for controlled hyperthyroidism.


Hypothyroidism is when your thyroid gland doesn’t produce enough thyroid hormone.

Hashimotos’ thyroiditis is a common cause of hypothyroidism.

Your thyroid gland elevates your TSH and lowers your T3 and T4.

Hormone replacement is the common thyroid treatment.

Life insurance at the best rates is available for controlled hypothyroidism.


A goiter is a thyroid gland that is abnormally large.

It may cause an underactive or overactive thyroid gland.

As long as the goiter has been checked by your endocrinologist, it will not affect your underwriting.

Thyroid Nodules

Nodules are lumps that form in your thyroid.  

While most thyroid nodules are benign, approximately 5% will turn out to be thyroid cancer.  

Thyroid nodules may be difficult to work with at times, depending on the type of examination you’ve had.

It’s important to have a few follow-up sonograms to confirm that the nodule is stable with no changes.

If you had a fine needle biopsy with benign results, the best rates are available.
