Did you know that 20 million Americans have a thyroid condition — and up to 60 percent of them don’t know it?
The thyroid gland is a small, butterfly-shaped gland located in the base of the neck just below the Adam's apple. Although small, the thyroid gland plays a huge role in our body, influencing the function of many of the body’s most important organs, including the heart, brain, liver, kidneys and skin.
Ensuring that the thyroid gland is healthy and functioning properly is vital to your body's overall well-being.
Make a commitment this month to ask your doctor about your thyroid health during your next annual check up.
