Low Thyroid

Hypothyroidism, or underactive thyroid, is when the thyroid gland doesn't make enough thyroid hormone. Hypothyroidism may not cause noticeable symptoms in its early stages, but over time it can lead to other health problems. Common symptoms include fatigue, weight gain, cold intolerant, joint and muscle pain, dry skin, thinning hair, irregular menstruation, slow heart rate, and depression. Thyroid problems may result from poor diet, improper nutrition and/or stress.
