It's January...Do You Know Where Your Thyroid Is? Thyroid Awareness Month Focuses on Millions of Undiagnosed Americans with Thyroid Problems
Date:1/12/2010

January is Thyroid Awareness Month. Thyroid patient advocate and best-selling author Mary Shomon is launching a new campaign to help promote public awareness of the importance of thyroid health. The campaign includes the website http://www.ThyroidAwarenessMonth.com, as well as a free downloadable ebook, a Youtube video, and a Facebook social networking page.

Since January is Thyroid Awareness Month, patient advocate and author Mary Shomon has launched the new campaign, "It's January...Do you know where your thyroid is," to focus attention on the millions of undiagnosed and untreated people with thyroid disease.

The thyroid is the master gland of metabolism and energy. And when it doesn't work properly, women and men of all ages can experience symptoms including weight gain, exhaustion, high cholesterol, depression...even a low sex drive.

That's why there's no better time than now, according to Shomon, to find out where the thyroid is, and whether it's working properly.

Says Shomon, "Even with the efforts of the past decade, we still have a long way to go in terms of thyroid awareness. People are struggling with obesity, depression, infertility, menopausal symptoms, low libido, high cholesterol, osteoporosis, and many other issues. These can all be symptoms of a thyroid conditio., and yet the majority of Americans have never even had a thorough thyroid checkup. Proper diagnosis could mean that millions of people discover that their symptoms are actually due to overlooked and untreated thyroid problems!"

To help undiagnosed thyroid sufferers finally get the help they need,
