A key to a healthy body is positive thyroid health. The thyroid contains hormones that affect every organ in your body. Sometimes your thyroid can be overactive or underactive which can cause changes in your heart rate, body temperature or weight. When the thyroid makes too many hormones it’s called Hyperthyroidism and when the thyroid does not make enough hormones it’s called Hypothyroidism.
