What is Hypothyroidism?
Hypothyroidism is a condition where the thyroid gland does not produce enough of certain hormones. This can cause many symptoms, including fatigue, weight gain, constipation, depression, anxiety, dry skin and hair loss. Hypothyroidism is often caused by an underlying autoimmune disorder. Traditionally speaking, hypothyroidism treatment involves taking thyroid hormone medication long term. In functional medicine, medication and/or supplements may be used while addressing any underlying issues that may be contributing to the development of hypothyroidism. This may be due to underlying factors such as nutrient deficiencies, gut imbalances, hormone imbalances, chronic stress, infections, mold and more.
