Have you been diagnosed with a thyroid condition? Are you on medication but still don't feel well?
Hypothyroidism is a condition in which the hormones produced by the thyroid gland (T4 & T3) are too low in the body.
Some common symptoms of hypothyroidism include:
Low mood & energy
Though the symptoms are similar in most people with a thyroid condition, the type of hypothyroidism may be different.
Have you been assessed for the following?
Hashimoto's thyroiditis - an autoimmune thyroid condition
Central hypothyroidism - miscommunication between the brain and thyroid
Peripheral hypothyroidism - Conversion issue
Cellular hypothyroidism - Absorption issue
A full thyroid panel and history is required to get to the root cause of your thyroid condition. Your thyroid hormones should be in optimal range, not just "normal." Each of the above types of thyroid condition will be treated differently. And your treatment will be individualized to you.
If you have the above symptoms, but haven't been assessed for a thyroid condition, consider investigating.
It's not all in your head! You deserve to have energy to play with your children. You deserve to feel comfortable in your own body. You deserve to understand why you don't feel like yourself.
