Thyroid Doctor | Santa Fe
The thyroid gland produces hormones that affect almost every organ in the body, as well as a man or woman’s energy level, and their ability to lose or gain weight. Thyroid function is also critical to a person’s appearance by influencing the quality of their hair, skin, and nails – as well as where they store fat on their body. The list of symptoms of thyroid disease is very long, but can include: low energy, weight gain, muscle pain or weakness, thinning hair, infertility, menstrual issues, depression, brain fog, memory loss, and much more.
Hashimoto’s Disease is the most common type of hypothyroidism – in which a slow or “sluggish” thyroid does not produce enough hormone. Grave’s Disease is the most common hyperthyroidism disease, in which the thyroid is overactive and produces too much hormone. But, unfortunately, the average individual suffers from symptoms for approximately ten years before being diagnosed with thyroid disease! This is because, sadly, most doctors simply do not recognize the symptoms of thyroid disfunction, or understand thyroid diagnostic procedures.
