Preventing & Treating Thyroid Dysfunction

Thyroid dysfunction refers to conditions that affect the thyroid gland. For example, this could refer to an over or under production of thyroid hormones. The thyroid plays a large role in metabolic processes throughout the body. Different types of thyroid dysfunction affect its structure or its function.


Are you experiencing or at risk for thyroid dysfunction?

Thyroid dysfunction is the result of the thyroid gland overproducing or underproducing thyroid hormones. The onset of thyroid dysfunction could be due to an autoimmune disorder. If you are at risk or have thyroid dysfunction, you may experience symptoms such as fatigue, dry skin, feeling cold, constipation, muscle and joint aches, depression, tremors, unintentional weight loss or weight gain, increased sweating, and intolerance of heat.
