...Thyroid Disease...

Did you know that thyroid disease is more likely to occur in women than in men, and in most cases can be treated safely and very simple. Your thyroid gland is found in your neck in front of the windpipe. With it's two sides it looks a lot like a butterfly. At least what I'm looking at it does. The thyroid gland produces a few hormones that control the rate at which your body works ie; metabolism. So if there's not enough thyroid hormone in your bloodstream, your bodies metabolism slows down. If your thyroid over produces hormones into your bloodstream your metabolism speeds up. If you have a slow metabolism, it might be a good idea to have your Doctor check for you with a simple blood test. The symptoms are slow to develop. Common symptoms are:

* Fatigue and weakness.
* Weight gain.
* Decreased appetite.
* Change in menstrual periods.
* Loss of sex drive.
* Feeling cold when others don't.
* Constipation.
* Muscle aches.
* Puffiness around the eyes.
* Brittle nails.
* Hair loss.

To Your Health and Wealth,
