The fashion world of a supermodel (and the life of a mother) is non-stop. So when Kim noticed that she was running out of energy for no apparent reason, she grew concerned. That's when she saw an endocrinologist and discovered that she had a thyroid problem.

As many as 25 million Americans, most of them women, suffer from an underactive thyroid (hypothyroidism), and nearly half are still undiagnosed. For many people, signs and symptoms of an underactive thyroid can sometimes be overlooked. Things such as unexplained fatigue, forgetfulness, weight gain, and dry, itchy skin can all be features of hypothyroidism. For many thyroid patients, the solution can be as simple as a thyroid hormone replacement pill. That was the case with Kim.

That's why she is joining forces with the American Association of Clinical Endocrinologists (AACE); to educate Americans about thyroid dysfunction. Within a few months of beginning her treatment, Kim felt better and noticed the fatigue and other symptoms she had been experiencing had gone away.
