Below is a list of common symptoms which are often seen in hypothyroid cases (underactive thyroid function):
If you experience most or all of these symptoms on a daily basis, please ask Dr. Vo to get your thyroid functions evaluated. This can be done by blood studies and body temperature observation. The thyroid gland secretes several life-sustaining hormones that are responsible for major energy production and metabolic activities in every cell in the body. When the levels of these hormones become too low (hypothyroid) or too high (hyperthyroid), cellular functions such as fat metabolism, carbohydrate metabolism, vitamin utilization, sexual functions, sleep, digestion, sex hormone metabolism, etc… are affected severely. Consider to consult with Dr. Vo at your next appointment about your symptoms and ways to restore your thyroid gland’s functions.
