Bloated Stomach And Underactive Thyroid
Hi I have the startings of an underactive thyroid plus I've been peeing more and I am bloated alot. Had medicine for bloat but no help for peeing why? Ta
I have a friend an whenever she exerts any energy she get really sick to her stomach and dizzy. I know she has an underactive thyroid.
Have tests: She needs to have her thyroid checked and also ask to have her adrenal hormone level checked.
Not clear: There are studies that show a correlation between vitamin d levels and thyroid disease but correlation does not imply causation. In other words, it isn't clear there is a cause and effect relationship. It's good to keep your vitamin d level above 20, but low levels are may be indicative of a problem, not a cause of it.
Vitamin4 low thyroid: I am not aware of any specific effect on vitamin supplements to low thyroid. If your thyroid is low, which can be confirmed by lab tests, then simple thyroid supplement is the appropriate treatment.
Many: Some common symptoms are: fatigue, sensitive to cold, dry skin, constipation, hoarse voice, weight gain, high cholesterol, muscle ache/weakness, joint pain, heavy periods, brittle nails/hair, depression. Many other conditions can share these symptoms so if you suspect it, get a thyroid blood test.
Tests and Symptoms: Symptoms of low thyroid function are commonly fatigue, weight gain, heavy periods (females), dry skin, hair thinning and loss, depression and constipation. Tsh, free T3 (liothyronine) and free T4 (if TSH is borderline) as well as some other older tests like morning baseline temperature and tendon reflex testing can all detect low thyroid function.See 1 more doctor answer
Hypothyroidism: You will begin to feel terrible. Cold, fatigued, constipated, foggy-headed, cholesterol goes up. Not pleasant.
Too little hormone: The thyroid makes thyroid hormone, the main one is t4, which is converted in other tissues to t3 (liothyronine). An underactive thyroid makes too little thyroid hormone. You feel sluggish, bloated, constipated, cold. It is treated by taking replacement hormone levothyroxine. The thyroid also makes calcitonin, which is involved in calcium metabolism, but it is a weak hormone in humans and not replaced.See 1 more doctor answer
Yes: Depression can be a symptom of depression, but usually hypothyroidism manifests with other symptoms at the same time. Depresion can also occur independently of thyroid dysfunction. It you wonder if your symptoms are related to hypothyroidism, ask your doctor to check TSH and free thyroxine levels in the blood.See 1 more doctor answer

Body temperature 36.3 I'm feeling cold it'd 18 degrees c outside. Is this underactive thyroid? Had thyroid test 3 months ago. Results negative
Hypothyroid: If thyroid tests are normal, your intolerance to cold is not related to an thyroid disorder.
Weight Gain: Hypothyroidism (low) is associated with gaining weight, because your metabolism is too slow and sluggish. The most common cause is autoimmune, called Hashimoto's. Other symptoms include fatigue/lethargy, muscle aches, menstrual irregularity, constipation, feeling cold, dry skin, depression, and coarse hair. you may have a goiter/enlarged thyroid. Blood tests can show anemia, high cholesterol.See 2 more doctor answers
Yes: They are two separate conditions. You can have both.See 1 more doctor answer
Unlikely: Hypnagogic hallucinations, which are hallucinations that occur just before falling asleep, are not a common feature of an underactive thyroid. That doesn't mean they can't be caused by by hypothyroidism, just that most people with hypothyroidism don't have them. If they began around the time someone was diagnosed, and went away with treatment, it's certainly possible.
