Order These Tests Immediately If You Show Any Of These 68 Signs Of Hypothyroidism

Bipolar disorder as well as medication resistant depression are caused by thyroid resistance in the brain. It may sound strange, but it makes sense if you know that the thyroid affects every single cell in the human body. Now, let’s talk about the symptoms of hypothyroidism. As the thyroid affects every cell of the body, the symptoms of low functioning thyroid may be similar to different diseases and often missed. Some cells can get the thyroid hormone, but others won’t, and this results in tissue specific hypothyroidism. A great example of this is when a person suffers from depression without any signs of hypothyroidism.

The following list of symptoms can help you realize if you’re having problems with your thyroid. If you are, we recommend appropriate treatment, even if the lab tests came back normal.
