Why am I so tired all the time and can’t lose weight?

Could it be my thyroid?

The thyroid is a butterfly shaped endocrine gland that surrounds the esophagus and sits on the front side of the neck. The thyroid is the control panel for the body’s metabolism which affects the body’s ability to convert food into energy. If the thyroid is under active (Hypothyroid) and not releasing enough hormone levels to stimulate the metabolism, this could result in not having enough energy and eventual unwanted weight gain or difficulty losing weight. Although these symptoms may seem unpleasant or uncomfortable, they can be managed well when evaluated, diagnosed and treated by a highly trained thyroid medical professional. If you are looking for more information regarding Hypothyroidism, the Thyroid Virtual Clinic offers a safe, effective and convenient (100% online) way to diagnose and/or manage this thyroid condition from the comfort of your own home or workplace.
