Low Thyroid And Belly Fat

The long list of symptoms of low thyroid can be deceptive because you don’t have to have all the symptoms, and they can be very mild, even almost unnoticeable at first until they’re not and they get worse. What’s more is that often doctors do not test for low thyroid and when they do if they do not have a base line it might not be noticed as low enough before mediation is offered.

Take a look at the symptoms:

AtherosclerosisBrittle Nails
Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
Cold Intolerance
Dry Cracked Heels
Dry Skin
Fibrocystic Breasts

Hair LossHeat Intolerance
Hoarse voice
Insulin Resistance
Irregular or Heavy Menstrual Periods

Memory Problems
Muscle Cramps

Polycystic Ovary Syndrome
Swelling of Tongue
Trouble Thinking Clearly
Water Retention
Weight Gain

If you have more than three of these you should get an exam by your physician or by a physician that understands the thyroid. Ask for blood work to be done, and get to know what the numbers mean. Even if your TSH is normal it does not necessarily mean that your thyroid is normal, and this is the test most often used to test for normal vs. abnormal thyroid function. Therefore ask to have your T3 and Serum T4 levels tested.

If you have excess belly fat it is important to remedy a thyroid problem prior to trying to lose weight or work off belly fat. Due to most doctors misunderstanding of T3 levels, it can be difficult to find doctors who recognize this situation so you might want to look around for a “thyroid friendly” doctor, especially if you have many of the above symptoms. Many doctors, even endocrinologists, do not know about the inaccurate readings of TSH levels, so it is important to ask them before going to them for these tests.

Once you deal with your thyroid issue if you’re found to have one, the next step is to eat right and exercise. Eat whole foods that are as close to nature as possible, and exercise every day working up to an hour a day of purposeful movement. If you vary your foods and your movement you won’t get bored and you’ll soon find that the weight is melting off and you’re losing your belly fat. In addition, you’ll have more energy and be healthier than you’ve ever been before.
