A low thyroid condition is frequently undiagnosed and often not well understood. Common symptoms of hypothyroidism include fatigue, depression, cold intolerance, weight gain, hair loss, headaches, constipation, mental slowness, menstrual irregularities and elevated cholesterol. The thyroid issues may be a result of autoimmune disorders such as Hashimoto’s thyroiditis or other causes such as iodine deficiency, chemotherapy, pregnancy, hormonal changes, nutrient deficiencies or pituitary disorders. Stress, trauma, medications or toxins are also known to inhibit the production of thyroid hormones.
Thyroid symptoms occur due to a multitude of reasons even when blood tests may appear to be within the normal range. In this webinar, you can learn how to create a personalized plan to manage hypothyroidism and thyroid disorders based on your individual health, genetics, hormone levels and medical history.
