Thyroid Dysfunction

The thyroid is a small, butterfly-shaped gland in the front of your neck. Your thyroid's main job is to control the speed of your metabolism. Hypothyroidism is when the thyroid gland doesn't make enough thyroid hormones to meet your body's needs. Approximately 60% of people in the US have hypothyroidism. On the other hand, Hyperthyroidism, or overactive thyroid, happens when your thyroid gland makes more thyroid hormones than your body needs.

Symptoms of Hypothyroidism:


Menstrual Irregularities

Sensitivity to Cold

Fertility Issues or Miscarriage


Muscle and Joint Pain (especially in Hashimoto's Thyroiditis)

Weight Gain

Confusion or 'Brain Fog'

Dry Skin

Slow Thinking



Hypothyroidism is usually treated by taking daily hormone replacement tablets called levothyroxine. Levothyroxine replaces the thyroxine hormone.
