Thyroid Awareness Month

By Nate Gilbraith

January is Thyroid Awareness Month – how much do you know about your thyroid gland? Your thyroid gland is located at the base of your neck, just below your Adam’s apple. It produces hormones that regulate your heart rate, blood pressure, body temperature and weight. In short, your thyroid is pretty important. There are several diseases that can affect your thyroid, including cancer, so it’s important to talk to your physician about ways to maintain good thyroid health.

I had radiation treatment on my thyroid when I was a child but never knew why. My parents are deceased and the doctor clinic is long closed so I have been unable to get any information. I seem to have some thyroid problems according to the symptoms and told present doctor about them but he insists I have no thyroid problems even though I still have symptoms and he can find no other reason.
