'The One "Roid" You Should Know All about!
No, it’s not the illegal stuff taken by misguided athletes.
It’s not a prescription prescribed by a physician to cure an ailment.
This particular “roid” is actually much more vital than all the others combined – especially when it isn’t functioning properly. Give up? It’s the “thyroid hormone.”
This hormone can be the harbinger of serious health issues or it can be one of your best friends. It all depends on whether it is functioning in a healthy manner or if it isn’t working properly.
Many people have no idea how important to a healthy body the thyroid is. One of the problems is recognizing the symptoms of thyroid disease. The symptoms can replicate other illnesses, initially making it difficult to diagnose.

We’ve established that it is difficult to diagnose. The symptoms, if left untreated, can result in serious medical problems up to and including heart disease. In other words, it’s not something to mess around with.
