What is Hypothyroidism?
Hypothyroidism is a condition in which the body does not produce the proper amount of thyroid hormones. The thyroid itself is a small, butterfly-shaped gland located in the front of the windpipe. The release of hormones through this gland helps the body regulate energy and help control certain functions such as how the body digests food and how your heart beats.
When the thyroid hormones aren’t functioning properly, the rest of the body’s innate way of functioning begins to slow, which is also referred to as an underactive thyroid. Therefore, it is important that if you suspect you may have hypothyroidism you get a proper diagnosis and begin treatment.
Our doctors and staff want to make sure you understand that you are not alone, many people suffer from hypothyroidism, but we want to get to the source of your symptoms so that we can develop a customized treatment plan for your specific symptoms. Call us today at (770) 614-6266 if you are interested in learning more about our safe and natural hypothyroid treatment options.
Signs and Symptoms of an Underactive Thyroid
Each person experiences different effects from hypothyroidism; one of the reasons it can be so difficult to identify or diagnose. How severe the condition is will also affect which symptoms present themselves or when.
Common symptoms associated with the condition include fatigue and weight gain. Unfortunately, these symptoms are common as we age with or without a thyroid condition, making it difficult to assess if it is related to a thyroid condition until other symptoms are present.
More common signs of hypothyroidism include:
- Dry, rough, or scaly skin
- Weight gain
- Slow heart rate
- Feeling cold
- Fragile nails or thinning hair
- Memory loss
- Joint pain
- Muscle aches or stiffness
- Elevated cholesterol
Most people experience a gradual progression with age, but many of these symptoms are common with aging in general.
