January is Thyroid

Awareness Month

Even though the thyroid is small, it controls many of the body’s most important functions. The thyroid is responsible for making hormones that affect breathing, body temperature, heart rate, digestion, metabolism, bone health, energy level and even mood. 

Some signs of thyroid issues are feeling anxious, increased heart rate, increase in sweating, weight loss, weak nails, thinning hair, and feeling cold.
