Hypothyroidism is under diagnosed and over estimated. Symptoms of Hypothryoid can begin YEARS before ever appearing on blood work. I myself, having been through the suffering of hypothyroidism , know first hand how symptoms can control your life. Then when lab tests come up "normal" ... you think, now what???
I have taken my diagnosis to fuel my quest to discover that what may be "normal" in labs, is far from a normal way of life.
Being one of the master regulators of body metabolism, symptoms of low thyroid function generate a global response. Symptoms include:
- Fatigue and low energy, with need for daytime nap.
- Depressed, down, or sad.
- Skin that becomes dry, scaly, rough, and cold.
- Hair becomes coarse, brittle, and grow slow.
- Excessive unexplained hair loss.
- Sensitivity to cold in a room when others are warm.
- Difficulty in sweating despite hot weather.
- Constipation that is resistant to magnesium supplementation.
- Difficulty in loosing weight.
- Unexplained weight gain.
- High cholesterol resistant to cholesterol lowering drugs.
