PHOENIX, June 17, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The thyroid, although physically unimposing in regard to size, plays an extremely important role in many functions throughout the body, including the way the body metabolizes food into energy. Studies show that women over 35 years old exceed a 30 percent chance of acquiring some sort of thyroid disorder. http://www.cnn.com/2007/HEALTH/conditions/05/10/healthmag.thyroid/ Common symptoms of thyroid disorders, including underactive thyroid, include unexplained exhaustion, depression, anxiety, increased appetite, decreased cognitive function, loss of sex drive, and many more symptoms ranging from mild to severe. Oddly, an underactive thyroid can actually alter a person's sense of taste and smell.
The American Association of Endocrinologists estimates that up to half of the 30 million Americans suffering from thyroid disorder, 15 million, are undiagnosed, with women being approximately 10 times more likely to contract the disorder. Experts have trouble pinning down the exact cause of thyroid disorders; most feel that factors like genetics, an autoimmune attack, pregnancy, stress, nutritional deficiencies, or toxins in the environment are the cause of the disorder. Regardless of their cause, thyroid disorders, especially underactive thyroid, wreak havoc on attempts at weight loss.
The Diet Doc weight loss system acts to balance the body's hormones to help dieters achieve more effective results. With a carefully rendered weight loss plan, Diet Doc can reverse many factors that contribute to conditions and diseases that make it nearly impossible to lose weight, including underactive thyroid.
Unlike their competitors who view their client's weight gain as a universal or general problem, Diet Doc understands that each dieter has personal causes of weight gain, such as an underactive thyroid, that can contribute to disturbing symptoms like weight gain or sufferers finding it nearly impossible to lose weight. The company commits the necessary individual attention needed to adequately address those issues, allowing patient's unlimited consultations with doctors and nurses for the duration of the weight loss program.
During an initial telephone consultation with a Diet Doc physician, patients will review their medical history in detail to provide physicians with a clear understanding of each patient's unique needs. Following this first meeting, the client will receive a weight loss plan individually tailored around their personal requirements, including a plan to help combat underactive thyroid. These specially formulated weight loss plans contain powerful treatments to help clients balance hormones, boost an underactive thyroid and quickly burn excess fat, with some dieters losing up to almost a pound of excess fat per day.

For over a decade, Diet Doc has produced a sophisticated, doctor designed weight loss program that addresses each individual specific health need to promote fast, safe and long term weight loss.
