Thyroid dysfunction is a common problem that is often not addressed in routine care despite many people experiencing symptoms. The hormones produced by the thyroid gland help regulate many body functions, so it is important to optimize your thyroid hormones to alleviate any related symptoms.
What is Thyroid Dysfunction?
Thyroid dysfunction occurs when you are underproducing or overproducing thyroid hormones. When your thyroid is working irregularly, your entire body is impacted and you may experience mood changes, fatigue, weight changes, and more serious conditions like digestive diseases.
Hypothyroidism is a thyroid disease in which the thyroid gland produces too little thyroid hormone. This underactive thyroid condition causes the body’s functions to slow down. can include slow metabolism, weight gain, depression, memory problems, constant coldness, fatigue, and changes to your hair and nails. These symptoms can be observed even if test results, like a basic TSH blood test, come back “normal.”
Hyperthyroidism is another type of thyroid disorder that occurs when the thyroid gland makes too much thyroid hormone. This condition is also known as an overactive thyroid. Hyperthyroidism speeds up the body’s metabolism and can cause symptoms like weight loss, hand tremors, and rapid or irregular heartbeat.
