Thyroid dysfunction is extremely common in women and has unique consequences related to menstrual cyclicity and reproduction. Generally, the most common symptoms of thyroid conditions are fatigue, cold intolerance, hair thinning, weight changes and menstrual cycle changes. There are two types of thyroid conditions. Symptoms vary based on whether there is too much or too little thyroid hormone in the body.
The most common condition is Hypothyroidism. In Hypothyroidism, the thyroid is considered underactive and does not create enough thyroid hormone in the body. Supplementation with thyroid hormone medication is necessary. The second type is hyperthyroidism where there is too much thyroid hormone being produced (an overactive thyroid gland).
