You may have experienced this common scenario: You’ve been feeling a little sluggish lately, like you can’t really get going all day. You’ve also put on a few pounds. At first, you figured it’s just because you’re a little older. However, you are also noticing mood changes. You’re a little more anxious, and you just don’t feel as happy as you did a few years ago.
You finally decide it’s time to mention it to your doctor. He decides to check your thyroid, and you’re a little relieved to think that all of your symptoms could have at their root one “simple” problem. However, when the tests finally come back, your doctor tells you that everything is normal, and then suggests diet and exercise, and perhaps an antidepressant to help your mood.
If this sounds all-too-familiar (and frustrating), take heart. Your thyroid, even though it tested normal, may still be the culprit behind your symptoms. The good news is that there are some very simple things you can do (and not do) to make your thyroid function optimally and thus improve your quality of life.
