I am bone-tired all of the time. I also have dry skin, dry, brittle hair and nails that break easily. I asked my doctor if the problem could be linked to my thyroid. She ran a blood test for TSH and says it is OK. (It is just over 5.)
Your TSH level suggests inadequate thyroid hormone. There is a controversy about what TSH levels are normal, but thyroid experts now believe the range is between 0.3 and 3.
High cholesterol, depression, fatigue and difficulty losing weight are all indicative of low thyroid. So are dry skin, brittle nails, thinning hair and eyebrows, heavy menstrual periods and constipation.
I wanted to share a method I have used several times for killing warts. My doctor gives me a recurring prescription for the antiviral drug amantadine. I take it with me when I travel in case I get the flu.
