In brief: Cold intolerance
Mild thyroid hypo-function may be asymptomatic and may be detected on lab tests only.
Symptoms generally include, cold intolerance, constipation, dry skin, weakness, depression, menstrual irregularities, infertility, and if left untreated may lead to coma and death. Many of these symptoms may be present in other diseases and lab tests are generally necessary for diagnosis.
