Low Thyroid (Hypothyroidism)

When the topic of low thyroid comes up, most think of weight gain and sluggish metabolism, both of which are hallmark symptoms.  However, hypothyroidism affects every system of the body.

Symptoms of Thyroid Hormone Deficiency (Hypothyroidism) include:

  • Loss of energy (fatigue)
  • Tiredness after a full night’s sleep
  • Difficulty losing weight
  • Brain fog
  • Difficulty concentrating & short-term memory loss
  • Fluid retention
  • Puffy face
  • Elevated cholesterol & triglycerides
  • Menstrual irregularities
  • Sensitivity to cold
  • Constipation
  • Dry skin & brittle nails
  • Hair loss
  • Muscle and joint pain
  • Low basal body temperature
  • Loss of hair on the outer edge of the eyebrows
  • Recurrent & chronic infections

The thyroid hormones thyroxine (T4) and tri-iodothyronine (T3) are primarily responsible for the regulation of metabolism.   T4 is the inactive form of thyroid hormone and must be converted to T3 before it is effective.
