Information About Hypothyroidism Symptoms


One of the first steps to getting treatment for hypothyroidism is to understand the symptoms that you have. Females, more so than males, will have an underactive thyroid which can be problematic. The simultaneous appearance of multiple symptoms of this illness is usually, but not always, a clear sign that someone has this medical issue. Hypothyroidism has many symptoms which we will discuss in this article so you will know what to look for.

Many people with hypothyroidism don't know that they have this condition. Because it has such a wide variety of symptoms, most of which can also occur with a host of other disorders, you won't know for sure if you suffer from a diseased thyroid until you have a blood test. You should definitely see a doctor when you think that your thyroid is causing you problems because, otherwise, your symptoms will just get worse as time goes on. If your hypothyroidism reaches advanced stages, you may contract myxedema--a rare but still quite serious condition. This will cause you to deal with a variety of respiratory problems and blood pressure low enough to be dangerous. In extreme cases it can put you in a coma or kill you. While hypothyroidism doesn't usually progress to this state, it should always be taken seriously. It's just like other health issues: the sooner you find out, get diagnosed and begin your treatment the easier treating it is going to be. Many of the symptoms of hypothyroidism have to do with the slowing down of your metabolism. This can include a slowed pulse. Everyone's pulse rate is a little different, and in general people are looking to slow down their heart rate. For the most part, health concerns cause an increase in pulse rate. Unfortunately, when the heart rate slows down abnormally, this is a bad sign and it can happen sometimes with hypothyroidism. It can make your blood pressure go down. Again, since lower blood pressure is usually considered healthy, this is something that may not cause concern right away. Still, any abrupt change, whether it is quicker or slower, in your pulse rate or blood pressure, should cause at least a small amount of alarm. With a reduced metabolism rate, you might feel unnaturally cold even when your environment is warm or hot.

Because hypothyroidism symptoms can be caused by a bunch of other health problems, one thing that you really need to think about is the risk factor that you might have for thyroid issues. This is something you need to talk about with your primary care physician but there are some other things that could raise your chances of coming down with hypothyroidism. Women are more likely to have this condition than men, especially as they get older. If anybody in your family has been diagnosed with a thyroid disease or other form of autoimmune disease, this will also increase your risks. Exposure to radiation or certain chemicals can also be a factor. Smokers are also at increased risk of thyroid disorders. These are just a few of the risk factors of hypothyroidism that you have to know about. Hypothyroidism is a condition that affects quite a few people who never find out about it. It's important to talk to your doctor if you suffer from any of the symptoms that we have talked about here or have any of the risk factors that are typically associated with thyroid problems or diseases. If you have been diagnosed with hypothyroidism there are a lot of different treatments you can use to help control it.
