Thyroid Balance

Description

For years thyroid problems have been downplayed, misunderstood and portrayed as unimportant. But thyroid disease can affect almost every aspect of health, causing exhaustion, nervous tremors, excessive weight loss/gain, muscle and joint aches, depression and memory difficulties.

While thyroid impairment can affect men, it is particularly common among women. Experts agree that about 10 to 15 percent of women are affected, and some researchers believe that up to 50 percent of women may have thyroid problems.

Understanding more about your thyroid, and the symptoms that occur when something goes wrong with this small gland, can help you regain and maintain your health.
