Three Lesser Known Causes of Hypothyroidism

Posted by Dr. Karl R.O.S. Johnson, DC on Thu, Apr 25, 2013

What do you do when you have symptoms of hypothyroidism, but your doctor says your thyroid levels are normal? You may have one of three lesser known causes of this frustrating condition.

If you are like many of the patients who I work with to track down the elusive culprit, your many symptoms are often treated with medications. Some of the most common hypothyroid symptoms are:

  • Fatigue
  • Weakness
  • Weight gain or increased difficulty losing weight
  • Difficulty swallowing
  • Coarse, dry hair
  • Dry, rough pale skin
  • Thinning hair on scalp/hair loss
  • Loss of body hair
  • Cold intolerance (you can't tolerate cold temperatures like those around you)
  • Muscle cramps and frequent muscle aches
  • High Cholesterol
  • Constipation
  • Depression
  • Irritability
  • Memory loss
  • Inability to concentrate
  • Abnormal menstrual cycles/Heavy period
  • Infertility
  • Decreased libido
