As many as 59 million Americans have thyroid problems, and an alarming majority are not yet diagnosed. To give you an idea of just how important a healthy and functioning thyroid is to your health, consider this; if you don’t have a properly functioning thyroid when you are born, you can die within 24 hours.
Weighing in at just under an ounce and shaped like a butterfly, you’d be a fool to underestimate the power and influence your thyroid has on your health. Every single aspect of your metabolism, from your heart rate to how effectively you can burn calories, is regulated by thyroid hormones. Your thyroid affects your health in aspects you probably never even considered. It can affect your weight, cause depression and zap your energy levels leaving you feeling tired, worn out and irritable. Without vital thyroid hormones, your health will severely suffer. The most important of these hormones is thyroxine (T4), tri-odothyronine (T3) and thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH).
The frightening reality of an undiagnosed thyroid problem is that it increases your risk of heart disease, depression, anxiety, obesity, hair loss and much, much more.
Undiagnosed thyroid problems can dramatically increase your risk of obesity, heart disease, depression, anxiety, hair loss, sexual dysfunction, infertility and a host of other symptoms and health problems that in the most extreme cases can lead to death.
