Thyroid Issues Overview
Functions of the Thyroid


Do you experience any of the following symptoms?

  • Feeling cold all the time?

  • Cold hands and feet?

  • Tired? Sluggish? Lethargic especially in the morning?

  • Hot all time?

  • Uncomfortable in the warm weather?

  • Recent unexplained change in weight?

  • Depressed or anxious?

  • Diffuse hair loss?

  • Water retention / swollen ankles?

  • Unexplained infertility symptoms? Menstrual problems?

  • Difficulty swallowing or a feeling a sensation of having a lump in the neck?

If you answered, “YES” to some of these symptoms, chances are you are might be suffering from undiagnosed thyroid problems.


The thyroid gland is a butterfly shaped organ and is one of the largest endocrine glands in the body. This gland is found in the neck inferior to (below) the thyroid cartilage (also known as the Adam's apple in men) and at approximately the same level as the circoid cartilage.

The thyroid is controlled by the hypothalamus and pituitary. Generally it is felt on swallowing and appears to move along with the muscles next to the esophagus when you swallow.
