January is Thyroid Awareness Month!

The month of January is Thyroid Awareness Month!  Your thyroid is a small gland located at the base of your neck and has so many important functions.  This gland produces thyroid hormone, which controls nearly every cell and organ in your body!  When not enough or too much of this hormone is produced, your body cannot function properly.  If your thyroid isn’t working, neither are you.  Thyroid conditions affect more than 30 million Americans, making it more common than diabetes or heart disease!  The best way to detect thyroid disease is to ask your Provider to test your TSH (thyroid-stimulating hormone) levels.  For more information about thyroid disease and the organization that helps spread awareness, visit http://www.thyroidawareness.com/about-your-thyroid.
