Chronic fatigue could be a hallmark for thyroid problems

Fatigue has become an increasingly common complaint among people due to our fast paced, stressful lifestyles. It’s a vague complaint and could have multiple causes, hypothyroidism being a major one.

Apart from fatigue people with low thyroid hormone levels also notice weight gain, mood changes, constipation and dry skin to name a few.The most common form of hypothyroidism is Hashimoto’s/ Autoimmune. Smoking is a big risk factor for it.

Hypothyroidism can cause high cholesterol levels and future risk of heart attacks.

If you think you might have hypothyroidism (low thyroid hormone), consult your regular doctor to get a thyroid panel done. Blood work usually shows a high “Serum TSH” level. 

Supplementation of thyroid hormone is very helpful and prevents the risk of life-threatening complications.
