If you find yourself run-down most of the time with low energy, dry skin and drastic weight fluctuations, there might be an underlying issue with your thyroid. In fact, the Thyroid Foundation of Canada estimates that one in ten Canadians suffers from a thyroid condition, with 50% of those being undiagnosed! With those types of stats, it’s time we address the issue.
The thyroid gland is located just above your windpipe, and is essential towards a number of functions in the body from secreting thyroid hormone, to regulating the heart, brain and liver. Using iodine, the thyroid is able to produce the active form of thyroid hormone, responsible for cell growth and metabolism. Common to many Canadians is hyper or hypothyroidism, where there are unbalanced levels of iodine that in turn cause the thyroid to become imbalanced, leading to symptoms such as drastic weight fluctuations, malaise and high levels of fatigue.
