Understanding Thyroid Disorders

Thyroid is a small butterfly shaped gland which is found in the front of the neck and it regulates the body’s hormones. The thyroid gland regulates how the body uses and stores energy and interacts with other organs within the body. A healthy thyroid helps to maintain healthy metabolism and weight, healthy muscles, bones and blood cells, healthy skin, sleep and maintains cholesterol levels.

When it becomes underactive it causes a condition called Hypothyroid and when it becomes overactive it causes a condition called Hyperthyroid. Up to 60 percent of those who suffer from thyroid disease are unaware of their condition. One woman in eight will develop a thyroid disorder during her lifetime. Women are five to eight times more likely to develop thyroid disorder during her lifetime.
