Thyroid Therapy

Thyroid disorders — undiagnosed epidemic

The thyroid gland is one of the largest endocrine glands. The gland controls how quickly the body uses energy, makes proteins, and controls how sensitive the body is to other hormones.

Thyroid imbalances occur when your thyroid produces too few or two many of these hormones. An overactive thyroid, known as hyperthyroidism, occurs when the thyroid glands produce too many hormones. This can result in symptoms ranging from heart palpitations and anxiety to weight loss, heat intolerance and muscle weakness.

Hypothyroidism, or an underactive thyroid, is by far more common. In fact, some estimate that as many as 1 in 7 adults suffer from hypothyroidism.

Symptoms of these imbalances include:

  • Fatigue
  • Unexplained weight gain
  • Constipation
  • Dry skin and hair
  • Hair Loss
  • Puffiness or swelling in the face
  • Muscle aches and weakness
  • Heavy menstrual periods
  • Brittle hair and nails
  • Depression
  • Cold intolerance
