Have you been told your labs are normal only to suffer with the same thyroid symptoms you had before you began hormone therapy? Are you aware that EVERY cell in your body has receptor sites for thyroid hormone? Are you aware that the most common cause of hypothyroidism is NOT a problem in your thyroid gland but in your immune system? If your immune system is attacking your thyroid what ELSE is it attacking?
This important component of the body has a direct impact on the metabolism that is experienced in the body. Individuals who suffer from one of the major thyroid patterns may also suffer from several health complications. These include, but are not limited to, issues with weight, mood, and energy levels.
- Increase in weight gain even with low calorie diet
- Morning headaches that wear off as the day progresses
- Overly sensitive to cold weather
- Poor circulation and numbness in hands and feet
- Muscle cramps while at rest
- Catches colds and other viral/bacterial problems easily and has difficulty recovering
- Wounds heal slowly
- Require excessive amount of sleep to function properly
- Chronic digestive problems (hypochlorhydria)
- Itchy dry skin
- Dry or brittle hair
- Hair falls out easily
- Edema, especially facial (myxedema)
- Loss of outside portion of eyebrows
Many individuals experience thyroid disease symptoms and do not even realize that the experiences they are having could indicate a potentially dangerous complication. The implications of thyroid function on the rest of the body are vast.
