Thyroid Problems and Men's Health
Restore Your Health and Wellness
Do you find yourself feeling fatigued for the majority of the day? Are you struggling with your sexual health? Have you started to experience hair loss? Your thyroid wellness is likely the culprit behind many of these conditions. Hypothyroidism research has shown that at least 16% of men will experience thyroid wellness imbalances, and the risk only increases as you get older.
How Do Thyroid Problems Impact You?
Hypothyroidism Impacts 16% of men
Thyroid wellness is important because thyroid hormones control metabolism by regulating the rate at which cells function and facilitate the conversion of oxygen and calories into energy. While women typically experience thyroid problems more than men, there has been a significant increase in hypothyroidism in men over the last decade. Quality testing methods have helped to identify hormonal imbalances, allowing us to identify the source of your problems, and start improving your health. How do you know if you have a thyroid issue? Here are some of the most common symptoms of thyroid disorders in men:
- High Cholesterol
- Foggy thinking
- Decreased libido
- Low confidence and self-esteem
- Decreased testosterone levels
- Hair loss
- Weight loss or gain
