E.R. physician Dr. Travis Stork explains the different types of fat in the human body, and tells Khadijah if she should be concerned.

Subcutaneous Fat

• Found under the skin, usually on the arms, behind, belly and the neck.
Easiest to get rid of, but also the most visible.
Serves as a cushion of sorts for the body.
Contains fatty tissue, nerves and blood vessels, which supply the skin with oxygen.

Intramuscular Triglycerides

Often mistaken for muscle.
During exercise, up to 50 percent of the fat used as energy comes from intramuscular triglycerides.
Women often burn a greater amount of intramuscular triglycerides during exercise.

Visceral Fat
Most dangerous type of fat.
Sits deep inside the abdominal cavity and lines the internal organs.
Caused by consuming large amounts of saturated fat and lack of exercise.
Increases risk of diabetes.

Pediatrician Dr. Jim Sears reveals the foods you should be eating to fight fat.

Thyroid Issues
Elizabeth, 22, experiences uncontrolled hand tremors, hair loss, fatigue and has trouble keeping on weight. "I never thought to see a doctor, because I always figured it was just related to stress," she says. "It's very frustrating. It's not a good issue to have.

"My mother mentioned it could be a thyroid issue," Elizabeth continues. "I would feel better, and at ease, if I found out what it really was."

The thyroid gland
produces and stores hormones that help regulate heart rate, blood pressure, body temperature and metabolism. Thyroid hormones are essential for proper cellular function throughout the body.

Endocrinologist Dr. Jordan Geller joins
The Doctors to diagnose Elizabeth's symptoms.

"I see this all the time in my practice," Dr. Geller says. "Women come in, and they're shaky, they're sweaty, they're hot, they're anxious, they're losing weight. Many times they've gone to many different doctors. They've gone around to people who say, 'Oh, you're anxious, you need to cut back on your caffeine, get some more rest or even be put on anxiety medication.'

"It can be the thyroid
," he continues. "We have to really look for it and think about it."

Dr. Travis demonstrates how the
thyroid gland works.
