Have you had your thyroid tested?

Most people with underactive thyroid also complain of fatigue and low energy levels, unexplained weight gain, poor concentration, depression, hair loss, constipation, slow heart rate, intolerance to cold temperatures, aching muscles, dry coarse skin, puffy face, and/or tightness in the neck, near the Adams apple.

It typically occurs after a long period of stress, frequent illness, after pregnancy or breastfeeding and/or after menopause.


So what is the thyroid?

The thyroid is a small butterfly-shaped gland in the front of your neck. It is responsible for regulating our energy levels and metabolism, which means how fast or slow your brain, heart, muscles, liver, and other parts of your body work. The thyroid also helps to regulate hormones.

How can I get tested?

Have you had your thyroid hormone levels tested? I’m not talking about simply investigating Thyroid Stimulating Hormone (TSH). Testing TSH on its own does not give us enough information to know if a patient has a thyroid problem. We need to investigate other hormones such as T4, T3 and Thyroid antibodies to comprehensively ascertain if a thyroid problem exists.
