According to the American Thyroid Association, about 20 million Americans suffer from some kind of thyroid disease. Moreover, a large number of them are unaware of their thyroid disorder. The thyroid gland controls the chemistry of every organ in the body. It is a walnut sized gland that secretes the thyroid hormones necessary for energy production and functional regulation of every cell in the body.

A low thyroid condition is frequently undiagnosed and often not well understood. Common symptoms of hypothyroidism include fatigue, depression, cold intolerance, weight gain, hair loss, headaches, constipation, mental slowness, menstrual irregularities, and elevated cholesterol. The thyroid issues may be a result of autoimmune disorders such as hashimoto’s thyroiditis or other causes such as iodine deficiency, chemotherapy, pregnancy, hormonal changes, nutrient deficiencies, or pituitary disorders. Stress, trauma, medications, or toxins are also known to inhibit the production of thyroid hormones. Thyroid symptoms occur due to a multitude of reasons even when blood tests may appear to be within the normal range. Comprehensive testing should ideally include a TSH, T4 and T3 levels, and thyroid antibodies to check for autoimmune or Hashimoto’s Hypothyroidism.
