Let’s face it: Today’s modern lifestyle is practically designed to make you feel drained and tired by the end of the day. In fact, if you’re not dragging yourself to bed by the time the evening rolls around, you’re not doing something right – or so it would seem.
But are you really tired because of your busy lifestyle – or could there be something else to blame? Is there another reason why you’re feeling so lethargic and unable to keep up with your schedule?
As it turns out, you may have your thyroid to blame. If you’ve never given your thyroid a second thought, it’s time to examine whether it’s responsible for your lethargic feeling. This butterfly-shaped gland is responsible for producing the hormones that help keep your metabolism balanced and your energy levels feeling normal. If your thyroid is hyperactive, you’ll end up always feeling energetic and unable to gain weight (hyperthyroidism).
If, on the other hand, your thyroid isn’t producing enough hormones, you’ll experience the following symptoms:
If these symptoms sound familiar to you, it might be time to get your thyroid tested to see if you’re suffering from hypothyroidism. Fortunately, this condition can be treated with medication or a course of hormone treatments, which help regulate the underactive thyroid and help give it the boost it needs.
Wondering if you could be suffering from hypothyroidism? Ask yourself the following questions to see if you’re demonstrating the symptoms of this disease:
- Do I find it difficult to feel energetic and refreshed, even after getting a full night’s sleep?
- Am I losing interest in the activities that I once use to be enthusiastic about?
- Do I have a lack of interest in sex? Has my sex drive taken a nosedive?
- Is it hard to generate enthusiasm for things that I used to enjoy?
- Have I been feeling weak and lethargic, no matter how much rest I get?
- Am I unable to lose weight, despite trying?
