Thyroid disorder is very common. A malfunctioning thyroid gland can be the cause of many health problems.
A good way to check for thyroid problems is to take your underarm temperature every morning before you get out of bed for 3-7 days. If your body temperature is consistently below normal range (97.8-98.2), you have hypothyroid. If it's higher than the normal range, you probably have hyperthyroid.
