What is Hypothyroidism?

Your thyroid is a butterfly-shaped gland at the back of your neck. Your body makes two types of thyroid hormones, liothyronine (T3) and thyroxine (T4). When thyroid produces too little or none of these hormones, it may signify a condition known as hypothyroidism.

Why am I tired all of the time?

Despite a long list of symptoms that may be associated with hypothyroidism– like fatigue, dry skin, decreased sex drive, depression, headaches, constipation, memory loss, weight gain, and a host of others – many people go through life without knowing that their symptoms could be rooted in a thyroid condition. If you suspect that you may be experiencing symptoms related to hypothyroidism, consult your doctor.
