Worried About Your Thyroid?
Published: 01/15/2014

According to the American Association of Clinical Endocrinologists, about one in eight women will develop a thyroid problem in her lifetime. The thyroid is a small, butterfly-shaped gland in the neck that influences metabolism and the function of the kidneys, heart, liver, brain and skin.

It is important to make sure your thyroid is functioning normally – learn about the symptoms of thyroid disease, such as changes in sleep and energy levels, weight loss or gain, and hair loss; create a personal health history and then talk with your physician if you have questions or concerns. Simple tests can help determine if your thyroid is over- or under-functioning, and proper medications and lifestyle changes can help address any concerns.
