As you grow older and reach the middle age – between 45 and 50 – you might feel that you have become lethargic, do not have the energy to do tasks that were simple just a few months ago, your hair becomes rough and dry, your nails become brittle, your skin is drier than before, your bowel movement is not as smooth or you even experience constipation and you feel aches now and then. Most people put these symptoms as the side-effects of growing old and often do nothing about it. But wait! Do you know that low levels of thyroid can induce one, or several or all of these symptoms? What is even more dangerous is that if not treated in time, hypothyroidism or underactive thyroid or low levels of the thyroid hormone can lead to high LBD or bad cholesterol, high blood pressure and eventually increased risk of cardiovascular disease.

A butterfly-shaped gland in the neck, the thyroid secretes hormones that regulates metabolism. Low levels of this hormone can lead to symptoms listed above and eventually lead to the disorders and diseases. Women, more than men, are more likely to have a problematic thyroid as they age. Most women experience these symptoms gradually, making them unnoticeable. But in some, they are abrupt and can happen within months or even weeks.

As soon as one notices any of these symptoms, one must consult a doctor. The doctor will ask for a thyroid function test to be done (three tests to be precise, T3, T4 and TSH) and it is done by taking a blood sample on empty stomach first thing in the morning. After assessing the readings, the doctor will prescribe medication. Fortunately, the thyroid hormone can easily be replaced with a synthetic hormone and it is available in the form of a pill to be taken once a day in the morning. But the dosage has to be set right and this is done by the doctor through constant monitoring. Once the optimal dosage is set, the results can be immediate and visible.

Hence, if you find any of these symptoms do not delay in consulting your doctor.
