Your Guide to Thyroid Disease

Unfortunately, for many people with undiagnosed hypothyroidism, even the most rigorous diet and exercise program may leave you unable to lose weight. Getting your thyroid problem diagnosed and treated then, is an essential part of a successful weight loss program!

This quiz walks you through some of the most common thyroid risk factors and the frequently seen symptoms of thyroid disease.

After you've answered the questions, you'll get a rating, which will evaluate how many of your responses fit in with someone who is at risk for thyroid disease, or whose weight problems may be due to a thyroid condition.
