Each day, thousands of middle aged women visit their doctors with complaints of infrequent periods, weight gain and fatigue. In most cases, these women are diagnosed with symptoms of menopause and sent home with information about lifestyle modifications and treatment options to alleviate the symptoms. However, what many of these women don’t know is they could be suffering from thyroid disease.
Women are more subject to thyroid disease than men and it is particularly prevalent in menopausal women.
