Thyroid / Hypothyroid
Thyroid hormone, produced by the butterfly-shaped gland of the same name, helps regulate our heart rate, metabolism, body temperature, cholesterol level, weight, vision and menstrual regularity. Too much or too little of this vital hormone in our system can cause significant problems, and ones that are often misdiagnosed…even by doctors who present themselves as thyroid specialists!
And as we age, a deficiency of thyroid hormone can induce a syndrome known as hypothyroidism. Some of the common symptoms of this disorder include:
Uncontrollable weight gain
Sensitivity to cold
In addition, when the gland is not producing enough hormone, the pituitary gland will start secreting Stimulating Hormone which forces the thyroid to work harder, often leading to an goiter.
Natural hormone supplementation therapy can prevent this unnecessary stress as well as many of the symptoms of hypothyroidism.
Getting Help for Hypothyroidism
Though the reasons are unclear, women are much more likely to be hypothyroid then men. Thyroid complications are particularly prevalent during perimenopause. Left untreated, issues can cause depression and rapid weight gain during this phase of a woman’s life.
