Thyroid

Do you feel fatigue despite sleeping 8 to 10 hours a night or need to take an afternoon nap daily? Are you gaining weight despite the same diet and levels of activity?

The most common thyroid problems involve abnormal production of thyroid hormones in your body. Although the effects can be unpleasant or uncomfortable, most thyroid problems can be managed well if they are properly diagnosed and treated.
