A surprising fact is that many of the symptoms and problems that are associated with aging can many times be attributed to lowered levels of thyroid hormones. Some of the major problems caused by a decrease in these hormones include:
- Weight Gain
- Depression and/or mood swings
- Hair thinning
- Menstrual irregularity for women
- Muscle aches and pains
- Increased sensitivity to cold
What Role does the Thyroid Play?
The Thyroid is an important gland that is located in the neck; more precisley, it is found behind the adams’ apple. This gland regulates and/or stimulates your body’s ability to convert nutrients into energy. Individuals with low thyroid hormone levels have slow metabolisms which in turn leads to chronic fatigue and weight gain.
