Research shows ten to forty percent of Americans are affected by suboptimal thyroid performance, the majority of which are middle aged women.
Hypothyroidism occurs when your body produces too little thyroid hormone, which is commonly associated with iodine deficiency. Many people that suffer from hypothyroidism show no obvious symptoms in lab tests, causing the condition to go undiagnosed. That means only a small number of individuals that suffer from hypothyroidism get treatment, while the majority remain unaware.
While it takes an expert like Dr. Nancy to diagnose hypothyroidism, symptoms often include lack of energy, weight gain, rough or dry skin, hair loss, cold sensitivity, and low body temperature. If you suspect your thyroid is not operating at optimum levels and you live in the Canton, Akron or Cleveland areas of Northeastern Ohio, please contact us today.
