Thyroid function problems are very common. Symptoms include fatigue, hair loss, poor sleep, abnormal periods, poor concentration, difficulty getting pregnant, dry skin, thick skin, swelling, numbness, depression, difficulty tolerating cold temperature, cold hands and feet, constipation, muscle aches, numbness, trouble with heart rate and rhythm, getting sick often, difficulty losing weight despite a good diet and exercise, rashes, etc.
Many people are taking supplemental thyroid medication yet are not feeling very much better, or they felt well initially when starting thyroid medicine, but do not now.
If you are still having symptoms even though you are taking thyroid supplementation medication, there are several possible reasons for this. Your dose or type of thyroid may be wrong for you, or you are not taking the medication on an empty stomach.
To feel well you must be nutritionally and hormonally balanced. Coexisting issues with adrenal function, ovarian function, insulin resistance, GI function, and lifestyle choices are important. The stress, poor sleep, toxins, drugs, etc., that injured your thyroid will often have injured your other cells as well. A comprehensive wellness program that addresses EVERYTHING will help you.
