Thyroid Running Low?

The thyroid is the “master gland” of the body, influencing the function of many of our most important organs, including the heart, brain, liver, kidneys and skin. Yet, more than half of all people affected by thyroid disease are unaware of the cause of their problems. Individuals with low levels of thyroid hormones (hypothyroidism) may have several symptoms but may not be diagnosed for years. Women are more vulnerable to thyroid imbalances due to hormonal changes throughout their lifetime (puberty, birth control pills, pregnancy, menopause, HRT). Many symptoms of hypothyroidism and menopause overlap. It is especially important for menopausal women who decide to use hormone replacement therapy (HRT) to have their thyroid function tested, because oral estrogens can lower the amount of bioavailable thyroid hormone. Our pharmacists will work together with you and your doctor to restore thyroid health and proper function. Ask us for more information - and feel good again!
