According to the American Thyroid Association, over 12% or 20 million people suffer from a thyroid condition, many of them unaware that their symptoms are part of a treatable thyroid condition or disease. Because the body is a complex matrix of organs and tissue, it makes sense that thyroid conditions are frequently associated with other disorders, conditions, or hormonal imbalances.
The exact reason for thyroid conditions is unknown, but it can be associated with underlying conditions like autoimmune deficiencies, Graves’ disease, osteoporosis, toxic adenomas, and more. Symptoms of thyroid disorders are common and often can be mistaken for signs of aging.

• Muscle Weakness or Fatigue • Restlessness • Insomnia • Loss of Focus or Decreased Attention Span• Dry Skin and other Skin Conditions • Loss of Circulation or Feeling of Coldness in Extremities• Unexplained Weight Gain or Inability to Lose Weight• Fatigue • Depression • Cognitive Issues • Changes in Bowel Function
