It is estimated that as many as 59 million Americans have unrecognized and under treated thyroid problem. The thyroid, a butterfly-shaped gland located in the neck, is the master gland of metabolism. When your thyroid doesn’t function, every aspect of your health, is effected.
Since an undiagnosed low thyroid condition, can dramatically increase your risk of obesity, heart disease, depression, anxiety, hair loss, sexual dysfunction, infertility and a host of other symptoms and health problems, it’s important that you don’t go undiagnosed.
At Tenpenny IMC, we treat hypothyroid (low thyroid), hyperthyroid (high thyroid) conditions and Hashimoto’s thyroiditis, a chronic inflammation of the thyroid gland.In addition, we extensively use iodine for treatment both conditions.
