If losing weight all year-long is a struggle for you even though you eat healthy and exercise, it could be your thyroid, according to Nationally Recognized Menopause Specialist Dr. Diana Bitner.

Women are five to eight times more likely to have thyroid issues compared to about 3 percent of the male population. Like many health issues, knowing your family's history is very important.

Some signs and symptoms to watch out for are: tired, mentally sluggish, difficulty losing weight, cold all the time, dry skin and constipation.
