10 Signs You May Have A Thyroid Problem

Posted by Administrator on 10/22/2014

It's estimated that as many as 25 million Americans have a thyroid problem, half of which have no idea that they do.  Hypothyroidism, or an under-active thyroid, accounts for 90% of all thyroid imbalances.

The thyroid is a butterfly-shaped gland in the center of your neck and is the master gland of metabolism.  How well your thyroid is functioning affects every system in your body.   If your thyroid is not running optimally, then neither are you.

Here are 10 signs that you could have an underactive thyroid:

1. Fatigue after sleeping 8 to 10 hours a night or needing to take a nap daily.
2. Weight gain or the inability to lose weight.
3. Mood swings, anxiety or depression. 
4. Hormone imbalances such as PMS, irregular periods, infertility and low sex drive.
5. Muscle pain, joint pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, or tendonitis.
6. Cold hands and feet, feeling cold when others are not, or having a body temperature consistently below 98.5.
7. Dry or cracking skin, brittle nails and excessive hair loss.
8. Constipation.
9. Brain fog, poor concentration or poor memory.
10. Neck swelling, snoring or hoarse voice.

What are 10 things you can do to improve your thyroid function?

1. Make sure you are taking a high quality multivitamin with Iodine, Zinc, Selenium, Iron, Vitamin D and B vitamins.
2. Take a tyrosine and iodine supplement to help with the FT4 to FT3 hormone conversion.
3. Go gluten-free! If you have Hashimoto’s, try going completely grain and legume free.
4. Deal with your stress and support your adrenal glands. The adrenal glands and thyroid work hand and hand. Try restorative yoga and adaptogenic herbs, which support the adrenal glands in coping with stress.
5. Get 8 to 10 hours of sleep a night.
6. Have a biological dentist safely remove any mercury amalgam fillings you may have.
7. Watch your intake of cruciferous vegetables. There is a bit of a debate surrounding this.
8. Get fluoride, bromide and chlorine out of your diet and environment.
9. Heal your gut. A properly functioning digestive system (gut) is critical to good health.
10. Find a functional medicine doctor in your area and have them run the above laboratory test work to find our root cause of the thyroid imbalance.
