Thyroid Problems

The thyroid gland is located on the front part of the neck below the Adam's apple. This gland produces hormones which regulate body metabolism. Thyroid hormones are important in the growth and maturation of body tissues, regulating body energy and the body's use of other hormones and vitamins.  Diseases of the thyroid gland can result in either production of too many hormones (hyperthyroidism) or too little hormones (hypothyroidism).

When the thyroid doesn't function correctly, it can affect every aspect of your health, and in particular, weight, depression and energy levels.  Undiagnosed thyroid problems can dramatically increase your risk of obesity, heart disease, depression, anxiety, hair loss, sexual dysfunction, infertility and a host of other symptoms and health problems.
