Feeling Off? An Overactive or Under-active Thyroid May Be the Cause

Thyroid disorders are more common than you realize. Approximately half of the 30 million Americans with thyroid disorders don't realize it.

For a small gland in your neck, your thyroid plays an important part in your overall health. It regulates numerous bodily functions, including:

  • Metabolism
  • Body temperature
  • Heartbeat

  • Unexplained weight loss or weight gain
  • Depression
