January is Thyroid Awareness Month! That makes the beginning of the year a great time to check in on your thyroid knowledge, and your thyroid health.

Did you know…

  • The thyroid is a butterfly-shaped gland located in your neck that produces thyroid hormones.
  • Thyroid hormones impact your metabolism, or the rate at which your body burns energy.
  • Thyroid disorders are more common in women than men.
  • The most common thyroid condition is hypothyroidism, where your thyroid doesn’t make enough thyroid hormones.
  • Your risk of hypothyroidism goes up if you’re: female, 60+ years old, have a family history of the disease, have type 1 diabetes or celiac disease, and/or have been pregnant in the last six months.
  • Most thyroid disorders are lifelong conditions, but can be managed with medical care. Proper treatment can help your thyroid levels return to normal.
