    Thyroid Imbalance Symptoms


    The Thyroid is incharge of controlling a persons metabolism, it releases hormones like (T3) and thyroxine(T4).These

    hormones regulate your energy levels, weight, growth and many more. Thyroid basically controls the rate of

    metabolism  and if hormones are imbalanced this may reduce the rate at which your hormones work efficiently, your

    Thyroid can be under or over active and the following are symptoms for both.


    Hypothroid (Under active)

     If your thyroid is not producing enough of it hormones then you may experience the following.

    • Depression or Mood
    • Constipation which may lead to Heavy Periods
    • Dry skin/hair
    • Hair loss including outer 3rd of eyebrows
    • Weight gain or difficulty in losing Weight

    correct  the problem.
