The thyroid is the master gland of the endocrine system. It regulates the metabolic rate, which affects the function of all organs in the body. When functioning too slow (called hypothyroidism) it can zap energy levels, cause weight gain, and many other unpleasant symptoms.
There are two types of hypothyroidism:
Type 1: The thyroid gland fails to produce enough hormone. This type of hypothyroidism is detected in a blood test.
Type 2: Hormone levels are normal but cells are resistant and unable to utilize the hormone effectively.
