Is your thyroid the smoking gun behind your symptoms? 0

Do you or someone you know suffer from a thyroid condition? If so, you may be aware how big of an impact this small gland can have on the body.

The thyroid is a butterfly-shaped gland that sits in the lower part of your neck. Its primary role is to produce the hormones, thyroxine (T4), which is the inactive form, and, triiodothyronine (T3) the active form. T4 is first produced by the thyroid and then sent out into the body to be converted into T3.
