Underactive Thyroid Symptoms

The symptoms of both hypothyroidism and Hashimoto’s thyroiditis are one and the same and can be virtually silent in the early stages. For me, I lived much of my life thinking my symptoms were just normal, this was how everyone felt! The symptoms can  vary in severity and include:-

  • Decreased stamina
  • Depression
  • Feeling cold all the time
  • Gaining weight easily despite any method used to lose weight (I know people with underactive thyroids who have eaten less than 800 calories a day and still managed to gain weight)!
  • Dry skin and brittle hair
  • Deepening of the voice
  • Poor digestion ie farts!!
  • Brain fog – inability to think clearly
  • Sweet cravings
