Thyroid Hormone Therapy.

More than half of all people with Thyroid Disease are unaware of their condition, and the risk increases with age. Hypothyroid individuals may not be diagnosed for years despite having some or all of the following symptoms:
  • PMS, Irregular menstrual periods
  • Lack of exercise tolerance
  • Weight gain (especially stomach)
  • Hypoglycemia (low blood sugar)
  • Fatigue
  • Irritability; low self esteem
  • Low sexual desire
  • Infertility
  • Dry skin, eyes and/or hair
  • Yellowed skin
  • Loss of eyebrows
  • Constipation
  • Headaches, migraines
  • Depression, apathy and anxiety
  • Memory and concentration impairment
  • Fluid retention – face, legs, eyelids and abdomen
  • Slowed metabolism and slowed heart rate
  • Cold/heat intolerance; cold hands and feet
  • Enlarged tongue, deep voice and swollen neck
Because many of these symptoms typically overlap with symptoms of menopause, women may be more vulnerable to thyroid imbalances.
