Thyroid Problems

Welcome to our Thyroid Problems self-assessment. Your thyroid is a small, butterfly-shaped gland that makes hormones that help regulate your metabolism, meaning it plays a critical role in how energetic you feel and whether you gain or lose weight. The hormones can also influence body temperature, cholesterol levels and women’s menstrual cycles.

Sometimes, the thyroid gland doesn’t work correctly. It might become enlarged or develop growths. It might produce too much or too little hormone. The resulting symptoms may include weight gain or loss, fatigue, sleep problems, mood changes, heart rate changes, unusual menstrual periods, hair loss, temperature sensitivity and more.

At the Young Naturopathic Center for Wellness, our doctors can test your thyroid hormone levels to determine if you have a thyroid issue. Once they discover the root cause of the problem, they will work with you to create a customized treatment plan that sets you up for a lifetime of more balanced hormones and better thyroid health.
