Low thyroid or hypothyroidism, also known as thyropause, is a condition that often goes undiagnosed yet is quite common. About 30 million Americans have at least some form of a thyroid imbalance, and according to the American Thyroid Association, about 60 percent of the people who have it don’t even know that they have it. Most of the people who suffer from thyroid imbalances are over the age of 50 at about 45%.
The thyroid plays an important role in the body. It helps to keep hormones in check such as testosterone and estrogen, and it also helps to regulate the body metabolism function. Those who have an imbalance could have a number of different symptoms such as weight gain, fatigue, depression, hair loss, or even memory problems. It is hard to know for sure whether or not you have a thyroid issue since any of the symptoms for a thyroid issue are the same as symptoms of menopause and andropause. If you suspect that you may have a thyroid issue you need to get a test done by your doctor to know for certain.
What you eat can really affect how your thyroid functions and you need to make sure that you get the nutrients that your body needs such as iodine, selenium, iron, and vitamin D. Chronic stress can negatively affect the thyroid as well. Renew Youth has a hormone replacement therapy that can help with the symptoms of thyropause as well as andropause and menopause.
