January is National Thyroid Awareness Month
The thyroid is a small gland located in the middle of the lower neck, which produces hormones that regulate many functions including temperature, weight gain, and weight loss. Many Americans experience various problems with the functioning of their thyroid. Some red flags to watch for are:
- or increase in body fat
- despite and exercise
- fatigue, insomnia or restless sleep, anxiety or panic attacks
- gas, bloating, diarrhea, or constipation
- chronic sinusitis or lingering infections
It is important that people experiencing these warning signs see their physician to learn more.
There are also many online resources for those seeking more information and support. One online resource is the Fibro 360 Community – Fibromyalgia and Fatigue Center. This online community not only offers a network of support, but also resources to those seeking more information about fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, and related disorders including those concerning the thyroid.
