Hypothyroidism Symptoms

Hypothyroidism is sometimes called an under active thyroid problem. If you ignore hypothyroidism symptoms, you can experience several long term complications including obesity, heart disease and even infertility. Hypothyroidism affects women more often than men. You should understand this condition and learn how to watch out for the warning signs of hypothyroidism symptoms.

Your thyroid gland is a small gland located near the base of your neck and near your Adam's apple. Your thyroid gland is responsible for producing the hormones responsible for maintaining a proper level of metabolism. When your body doesn't produce enough of these hormones, you begin to suffer from the effects of hypothyroidism.

There are several hypothyroidism symptoms you should watch out for. Remember, hypothyroidism is treatable, but only if you can be diagnosed with it. Know the symptoms so that you take charge of your health.

The list of hypothyroidism symptoms include becoming increasingly sensitive to cold, a puffy face, a hoarse voice, unexplained weight gain, aches in your muscles, depression and swelling joints. It may also include skin that is dry and pale and menstrual periods that are heavier than normal.

Unfortunately, the hypothyroidism symptoms come on very gradually and they become very hard to notice since they can easily be attributed to other reasons. In fact, sometimes the only early symptoms you can notice is a general feeling of fatigue.

If you think that you may be exhibiting hypothyroidism symptoms, it's a good idea to seek out medical treatment to have your hormone levels examined. You can regain your energy and your life.
