What is Underactive Thyroid?
Having an underactive thyroid can cause a variety of health problems. The thyroid, a small butterfly-shaped gland, which located in the front lower part of the neck, is responsible for providing important hormones that regulate many of the body’s systems.
When there are not enough of these hormones in the bloodstream, you may experience any number of symptoms that can greatly reduce your quality of life. These symptoms, however, can be treated with thyroid replacement therapy.
