Hypothyroidism affects your health

Hypothyroidism affects your health

Hypothyroidism occurs when the butterfly-shaped thyroid gland does not produce enough thyroid hormones. It can take a toll on your physical and emotional well-being. Over time, hypothyroidism may lead to fertility issues, heart disease, dementia and other serious health conditions.

Are you at risk?

Many signs of early hypothyroidism may appear harmless or mild. So, you may unknowingly dismiss them altogether. Undetected and without proper treatment, your condition could deteriorate until it starts to affect daily activities and quality of life.

Consult your doctor

If you have the signs and symptoms of hypothyroidism, see your doctor without delay. He or she will be able to confirm whether you have hypothyroidism and put you on an appropriate treatment regimen. Do not ignore hypothyroidism. Break free and transform your life.
