Many people experience unexplained fatigue, a poor mood, weight gain or feel cold more often than normal.1 And there are a number of possible reasons why these symptoms could surface.

However, the common culprit — an underactive thyroid gland — often goes undiagnosed. In fact, more than 27 million Americans suffer from a thyroid condition, and 13 million of them aren't even aware of it.
