The thyroid is an incredibly important but little understood organ in your body. It's a small gland in your neck that produces hormones that regulate your bodily functions. One of the most important of these functions is how your body burns the energy from food that it needs. When your thyroid isn't working properly, it might not produce enough of these hormones, this is known as hypothyroidism and it can cause a whole host of problems. If you suffer from some of these signs on this list, you may have hypothyroidism. If you think you might suffer from it, get yourself tested by your doctor as soon as you can. Your doctor can diagnose you properly. Fortunately, most cases of hypothyroidism are easily treatable for the vast majority of sufferers.
