SYMPTOMS OF HYPOTHYROIDISM
Hypothyroidism or underactive thyroid, is a condition in which the body lacks sufficient thyroid hormone.
Since the main purpose of thyroid hormone is to "maintain the body's metabolism", it is easy to understand that people with this condition will have symptoms associated with a slow metabolism. Over five million Americans have this common medical condition. In fact, as many as ten percent of women may have some degree of thyroid hormone deficiency.
Hypothyroidism is more common than you would believe...and, millions of people are currently suffering from hypothyroidism and don't know it!

Why is it so important to take note of your symptoms?
