Moody, tired, or gaining weight? It could be your thyroid.
Of course there are many underlying factors that could contribute to these frustrating
symptoms such as hormones, stress, neurotransmitter imbalance, etc. However, the prevailing culprit, your thyroid, is often left undiagnosed.
Thyroid malfunction is a common cause of these symptoms and is not even considered by many doctors. To make matters worse, the doctors who are aware of the role thyroid can play usually do not sufficiently assess the lab values that are needed to get a complete picture, and this results in the person not being treated properly. About 50% of the people suffering thyroid malfunction remain undiagnosed, which can increase the risk of other health issues such as cardiovascular disease, osteoporosis, and infertility!
