Are you tired all the time? Do you have difficulty losing weight, or suffer from depression, hair loss and constipation? Did you know that these are common symptoms of thyroid dysfunction? Thyroid dysfunction is not always easily, or accurately diagnosed, and many people continue to have symptoms even when on medication.

Learn about the signs and symptoms of thyroid dysfunction, what the No. 1 cause of low thyroid conditions in America is, and what common foods and popular supplements to avoid if you have low thyroid function.

Hypothyroidism (low thyroid function) affects more people in the United States than diabetes, yet is far less recognized or understood. It is estimated that 1 in 8 women suffer from a thyroid condition, and that as many as half of Americans with thyroid dysfunction are currently undiagnosed or misdiagnosed.

Although women tend to be more frequently affected by thyroid disorders (especially due to hormonal fluctuations such as pregnancy and menopause), men are certainly at risk for thyroid conditions, and may be easily overlooked due to the prevalence in females.

If you are suffering from stubborn weight issues, fatigue, hair-loss, infertility, depression, or currently have a diagnosed thyroid condition, this presentation will provide you with insights into the interconnectedness of thyroid dysfunction, and how to test for and investigate mechanisms that might be contributing to your symptoms.
