Help For Your Underactive Thyroid

By Res-Q editor 11 days ago 97 Views No comments

Hypothyroidism is a condition in which your thyroid gland does not produce enough thyroid hormones.There are various types of hypothyroidism, including Hashimoto’s (also known as autoimmune thyroiditis), which is the most common cause.This condition alone affects 14 million people in the United States alone.

Many people may also suffer from symptoms of hypothyroidism, despite normal lab values, and may have subclinical hypothyroidism.Common symptoms include: fatigue, weight gain, feeling cold, hair loss, constipation, dry skin, and mild depression.

Women are much more likely than men to develop hypothyroidism. The disease is also more common among people older than 60.

You are more likely to have hypothyroidism if you:

  • Have had a thyroid problem before, such as a goiter
  • Have had surgery to correct a thyroid problem
  • Have received radiation treatment to the thyroid, neck, or chest
  • Have a family history of thyroid disease
  • Were pregnant in the past 6 months
  • Have Turner syndrome , a genetic disorder that affects females
  • Have other health problems, including
    • Sjögren’s syndrome , a disease that causes dry eyes and mouth
    • Pernicious anemia , a condition caused by a vitamin B12 deficiency
    • Type 1 diabetes
    • Rheumatoid arthritis , an autoimmune disease that affects the joints
    • Lupus , a chronic inflammatory condition

There are many diet and lifestyle steps you can take to help alleviate hypothyroidism. These include:

  • Manage your stress
  • Get a little exercise daily
  • Improve your gut health
  • Eat a nutrient-rich diet
  • Calm systemic inflammation

Res-Q Natural Supplements can help, too. In particular, try these three products suggested by Melissa Josselson, N.D.:

Stress Blocker
Oftentimes in cases of hypothyroidism, the adrenal glands need support.Res-Q Stress Blocker contains ingredients that support both adrenals and thyroid, such as ashwagandha.

Vital D3

Vitamin D deficiency is another thing to consider, as it has been linked to hypothyroidism, so consider Res-Q Vital D3 to optimize levels and support the thyroid.

ProBiotic

The gut microbiome plays an important role in the immune system and thyroid function, so choose Res-Q ProBiotic to support healthy and balanced gut flora.
