Thyroid Testing— Is your doctor missing something?

Similar to the gas pedal in your car, the thyroid controls the “speed” of your metabolism. It fine-tunes the function of virtually every tissue in the body, from the lowly cells responsible for creating fingernails to the nerve cells in the brain that guide memory and thought.

Your thyroid hormone level has to be just right. Too high and you are anxious and lose weight despite eating like a horse.
