If you've found yourself feeling more sluggish than usual, tired all of the time, unable to sleep, irritable or moody, it may be due to a hormone imbalance. It's easy to make excuses: "I'm getting older," "work has me really busy," or "the shift in seasons has me down," etc. While these things may be true, it could also be a hormone imbalance linked to your thyroid, causing you to have a bad case of the "blahs."
Did you know having too much or too little thyroid hormone can negatively impact your quality of life? From day to day activities to your relationships, your thyroid could be preventing you from living your best life. Hypothyroidism, aka overactive thyroid, can result in unintentional weight gain, difficulty sleeping, a rapid heartbeat, anxiety or nervousness, muscle weakness, and excessive sweating. Essentially, the body is placed into overdrive.
Conversely, an underactive thyroid slows the body's processes down. Those with an underactive thyroid may experience cold sensitivity, tiredness, dry skin, memory fog or forgetfulness, weight gain, and depression. Additionally, stiff joints and muscle weakness as well with hypothyroidism.
Symptoms related to under or overactive thyroid vary greatly. As a result, it is essential to get tested. If you're feeling out of sorts, it may be time to visit our functional medicine clinic as there are plenty of reasons to do so.
