You eat right, you exercise, you get regular check-ups and follow the basic guidelines of good health. So, why don’t you feel great? Why are you having weight issues? Why are you so tired, foggy, depressed, anxious—or all of the above? You may be one of the one in eight women (or 12% of Americans) with a thyroid disorder.
That butterfly-shaped gland that sits at the base of your neck can wreak havoc on your whole health. What’s worse is that up to half of people with thyroid disease are undiagnosed. This is often attributed to the fact that the symptoms are so broad and vary widely from individual to individual. Many are misdiagnosed and treated for the symptoms that the imbalance is causing, rather than the thyroid imbalance itself. It can, therefore, take years to be properly diagnosed.
What Does the Thyroid Have to Do with Mental Health?
Short answer: a TON.

When the thyroid is out of whack, it can throw just about everything out of balance—every cell, organ, tissue, and gland in the body is impacted by thyroid function. Heart and brain health, skin, hair, nails, weight, digestion, and libido all depend on the thyroid. Like a car needs the gas pedal to provide the proper amount of fuel, the body needs the thyroid to produce thyroid hormone to help ensure that oxygen and glucose get into your cells.
It’s not uncommon to hear stories in the Thyroid RefreshⓇ community about patients being put on anti-depressants and anti-anxiety medications while, unbeknownst to them, the underlying problem was an out of balance and untreated thyroid. This not only misses the mark, but can pose serious health risks as well.
