The top 10 most common low thyroid symptoms include:
1. Unexplained weight gain
2. Inability to lose weight despite changing your diet and exercising more
4. Unexpected hair loss
5. Menstrual irregularities
6. Changes in mood including depression or anxiety
7. Changes to other hormone systems in the body
8. Chronic pain or muscle tenderness
9. Cold hands/feet
If you have 4+ of these symptoms then you need to get a complete thyroid lab panel done to evaluate your thyroid function.
You should be sure to look beyond the TSH and look at factors like thyroid conversion and tissue levels of thyroid hormone.
