STORIES OF IMPACT Katie, The Hypothyroidism Hero August 07, 2021 As we step into December, a wave of awareness and positivity greets us all, courtesy of the wonderful @katiegedwards! Wrapped in excitement, Katie shares her adorable new Nerdbugs Thyroid Plushie, radiating happiness and a passion for spreading awareness about hypothyroidism. With a zest to educate and uplift, Katie sheds light on this condition – one that occurs when the thyroid gland is underactive. Hypothyroidism translates to the thyroid gland not producing enough thyroid hormone to keep the body functioning as it should. It's an opportunity to understand that individuals are classified as hypothyroid when their blood carries too little thyroid hormone. Through Katie's vibrant spirit and her cuddly companion, we're invited to embrace both awareness and smiles this December. Get the wonderful Nerdbugs Thyroid Plushie Organ as a gift for a loved one in your life!
