A Balancing Act
Your whole life is a balancing act… A carefully choreographed exercise in keeping all the balls in the air. There’s work… the kids’ school and summer activities… projects around the house… AND the school reunion committee meetings you signed up for (it seemed like a good idea at the time). When you’re feeling sharp you can make it through the week like skiing down a hill of new powder. But when you’re feeling just a little “off”, each day is a slog through mud.
Your thyroid gland is the orchestrator of your metabolism and energy; secreting hormones that keep you in balance and thinking clearly. If your thyroid is not putting out the right amount of hormones or if they are not being utilized fully in your body, you could experience a range of symptoms including severe fatigue and lack of energy, weight gain, joint and muscle aches, dry skin, brittle hair and nails. When your fuzzy days outnumber your crisp ones, or when that 3rd cup of coffee just isn’t delivering the boost you need, consider that you may be more than “just tired”. A visit with one of our Board-certified Endocrinologists can help you get to the root of the problem. Visit their profiles and make an appointment to help get your life back in balance.
