Hypothyroidism

Hypothyroidism, a condition characterised by an underactive thyroid gland, manifests through a spectrum of symptoms that can significantly impact your overall well-being. Common signs of hypothyroidism include fatigue, unexplained weight gain, and sensitivity to cold temperatures. Individuals may experience dry skin, brittle nails, and hair loss, reflecting the thyroid's influence on skin and hair health.

Hypothyroidism can also affect cognitive function, leading to memory issues and difficulties concentrating. Changes in mood, such as depression and irritability, may accompany hormonal imbalances. Additionally, disruptions in the menstrual cycle for women and muscle aches and weakness can be indicative of hypothyroidism. Recognising and addressing these symptoms promptly is crucial for seeking appropriate medical attention and effective management of hypothyroidism. If you suspect you may be experiencing hypothyroidism symptoms, consulting with a healthcare professional, especially an endocrinologist or a thyroid specialist, is recommended for accurate diagnosis and personalised treatment.
