Gaining Weight? Always Tired? Your Thyroid May be the Culprit.

If you've had unexplained weight gain or fatigue, it might be time to check your thyroid. Here are signs of an over- or under-active thyroid, and treatments.

The thyroid, a small butterfly-shaped gland located in the neck, plays a crucial role in regulating various bodily functions through the production of hormones.

Symptoms include weight loss, rapid heartbeat, anxiety, heat intolerance, and tremors. Graves’ disease, an autoimmune disorder, is a common cause of hyperthyroidism.
