Dr Oz: Low Thyroid Function Diet
Dr Oz said that if you have heavy menstruation, weight gain, insomnia and always feel cold, then you could have low thyroid function from a hypo-active thyroid. If your thyroid is not functioning properly, it will not alter your estrogen levels, but you can be left feeling very tired and weak. So do not just ask for an estrogen level test at the doctor, ask to get your thyroid levels checked. Dr Oz mentioned that 1 out of 10 women have under-active thyroid… I had no idea it was so common! My grandmother unfortunately suffered from low thyroid function, so I hope I don’t get it.
