Thyroid Hormone

Your thyroid gland, through the hormones it produces, influences almost all of your metabolic processes in your body.  Thyroid disorders involve either too much or too little thyroid production. The signs and symptoms can vary but in general tend to develop slowly, often times over a number of years.

Insufficient hormone production leads to hypothyroidism and can cause a variety of symptoms.  At first, you may barely notice the symptoms such as fatigue and weight gain, or you may simply attribute them to getting older.   But as your metabolism continues to slow, you may develop more obvious signs and symptoms such as:

* Fatigue
* Increased sensitivity to cold
* Constipation
* Dry Skin
* Unexplained weight gain.
* Puffy face
* Thinning hair
* Depression
* Hoarseness
* Muscle aches and tenderness
* Heavier than normal or irregular menstrual periods

Vitamin D

Vitamin D has been shown to play a role in the prevention and treatment of a number of different conditions. Vitamin D is called a vitamin, however it is really an essential hormone. Vitamin D is better known for its ability to promote bone strength by increasing calcium absorption, but it is also well known for helping prevent heart disease and cancer.

As a fat-soluble vitamin, vitamin D is naturally present in very few foods, added to others, and available as a dietary supplement. It is also produced endogenously when ultraviolet rays from sunlight strike the skin and trigger vitamin D synthesis.

Regularly checking your blood levels of Vitamin D is essential.  Symptoms of low vitamin D are usually unnoticed and when left untreated can be harmful.

Most lacking Vitamin D, experience:

* bone pain
* cracking sensation in the bones.
* Muscle weakness, fatigue
* back pain
* depression
* lack of concentration
* loss of appetite and weakness
