chronic fatigue is risky for women

Your thyroid produces thyroid hormones, which control all of the metabolic activity in all of your cells. It’s important that your thyroid is functioning properly.

Many people may not even know they’re suffering from hypothyroidism because there are so many different symptoms.

Symptoms of Hypothyroidism

The classic symptoms of low thyroid include:

  • fatigue
  • weight gain
  • depression and anxiety
  • joint pain
  • water retention.

What Causes Hypothyroidism?

It can be caused by stress, pregnancy, Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis, nutrients (or lack thereof) and some medications.

If you’re concerned that your thyroid may not be functioning the way it should, give the Stengler Center for Integrative Medicine a call to get tested!
