What Are the Symptoms of Hypothyroidism?
Hypothyroidism can affect you in a variety of ways. As the body produces less thyroid hormone and metabolism slows down, symptoms may develop. They can be severe or mild. In fact, sometimes people with hypothyroidism have no symptoms at all. Some people develop symptoms over several months or years, while others experience them more quickly. A wide range of symptoms may be associated with hypothyroidism, including the list displayed to the right.*below.*

Are you experiencing any of these symptoms?
Track your symptoms and share your concerns with your health care provider. Keep in mind that while you may have some of these symptoms, that doesn’t mean that you have hypothyroidism.
Because the type, severity, and onset of symptoms can vary from person to person, the only way to know if you have hypothyroidism is with a diagnosis from your health care provider.
If you’re experiencing symptoms, see your health care provider for an accurate diagnosis.
