I think I have a problem…a thyroid problem…

Do you have these symptoms of a weak thyroid?

Thyroid problems are becoming increasingly common.

In fact…

You may have a thyroid problem even if your thyroid test – TSH – is normal.

Do you wonder if YOU have a thyroid problem?

Here are the most common signs/symptoms of a thyroid that is in trouble and getting weak:

  • Feeling tired/sluggish;
  • Feel cold – hands, feet, all over;
  • Require excessive amounts of sleep to function properly;
  • Weight gain even with a low calorie diet;
  • Gain weight easily;
  • Difficult bowel movements;
  • Less than one bowel movement per day;
  • Depression/lack of motivation;
  • Morning headaches that wear off as the day progresses;
  • Thinning hair on outer third of eyebrow;
  • Thinning of hair on scalp, face or genitals, or excessive amounts of hair falling out;
  • Dryness of skin and/or scalp;
  • Mental sluggishness.

“Dr. Carri, I definitely have a lot of these symptoms. What should I do next?”

In my experience, most medical doctors don’t start treating thyroid problems until they become significantly bad.

This was my personal experience (and one shared by many of my patients).

I had typical thyroid symptoms…and my TSH was over 7.0 – absolutely diagnostic of hypothyroidism.

But, my family doctor told me “We usually don’t do anything until your TSH gets into the double digits.”

What the heck?

Wait until I get worse?

So, I totally understand if you’re frustrated with your doctor.

My advice is to start educating yourself – on Hypothyroidism, Subclinical Hypothyroidism, and Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis.

I talk about this in my book Reclaim Your Energy and Feel Normal Again! Fixing the Root Cause of Your Fatigue with Natural Treatments – Chapter 3.

I also highly recommend the book Why Do I Still Have Thyroid Symptoms? When My Lab Tests Are Normal by Dr. Datis Kharrazian – he is one of the most brilliant doctors when it comes to thyroid problems.

Lastly, for those who want the latest information from today’s leading thyroid experts I highly recommend investing in the Thyroid Online Summit and/or the Thyroid Sessions Online.
