What can go wrong with my thyroid?
Hypothyroidism (underactive thyroid) – not enough thyroxine is produced for the body’s needs, leading to tiredness, feeling cold, weight gain, poor concentration and depression.
Hyperthyroidism (overactive thyroid) – too much thyroxine is produced for the body’s needs, leading to weight loss, good appetite, heat intolerance, anxiety, and heart palpitations.
Sometimes there are very few symptoms. A blood test from your doctor will confirm whether or not you have a thyroid disorder.
