Underactive thyroid symptoms and treatment?
How well your thyroid gland is functioning is inter-related with every system in your body and if your thyroid is not running optimally then neither are you.
Symptoms of an underactive thyroid can include weight gain, low libido, infertility, PMS, dry skin and nails, cold hand and feet, aversion to cold, fatigue, hair loss, exhaustion, constipation, headaches, depression or mental fog. If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, go and see someone who can offer you the right tests and support. Thyroid treatment is very dependent on one’s personal situation, for example whether it’s autoimmune thyroiditis of primary hypothyroidism.
You can support your thyroid gland nutritionally through diet and supplements. In this video I will discuss the main nutrients that support optimal thyroid function and which are the best food sources, as well as certain foods to minimise.
