arrowAs thyroid patients, we’ve discovered that a lot of problems we experienced weren’t “stand alone issues”. To the contrary–many can actually be related to our hypothyroid state!

This is not to say that someone couldn’t possibly have these without being hypothyroid. They can! But many are outright connected, or strongly connected, to hypothyroidism…whether you are undiagnosed, under-treated due to being on T4-only, or undertreated even with T3 or Natural Desiccated Thyroid (NDT).

Here is a list of those problems…each which will take you to more information:

Depression and Mental Health

Iron and Anemia


Absorption issues such as low Vit D, low iron, low B12 and more


Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

Bones and Osteopenia and Osteoporosis

Heart issues 

Hair Loss


Blood Pressure



PCOS (Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome) and Hypothyroidism


Low stomach acid

Sleep issues


Here’s a great list of patient-reported symptoms of hypothyroidism while undiagnosed or on T4-only that went away on NDT.
