Regulating ThyroidTired? It Might Be Your Thyroid
Millions of Americans who experience exhaustion, chronic fatigue and an inability to concentrate have an undetected condition called hypothyroidism (a fancy way of saying you've got an under-active thyroid).
Basically, what causes hypothyroidism is the lack of the mineral iodine in our diets. Iodine is essential for the thyroid gland's production of the hormone thyroxin, which regulates numerous functions, most importantly metabolism.
An inadequate intake of iodine can result in a wide variety of ailments, including fatigue, poor blood circulation, low sex drive, and irregular menstrual cycles--all classic symptoms of hypothyroidism. Doctors routinely overlook the thyroid as a contributing factor to health problems.
Had a special prescription for an aging cat who refused pills. I had never heard of using a gel in the ears, but the pharmacist was very thorough at showing me and explaining how to use it. Also, I appreciated the follow-up call to see how things were going. - Donna Nixon
