Do you think you have a thyroid issue?
If you have found this blog, I suspect you are searching for answers. You probably haven't felt good in years.
You ask friends for their opinions. They each have their ideas, but no real solutions.
You might have read an article in a magazine, or on the internet, or maybe even on a Facebook post that discussed thyroid issues, and you thought "That is describing me exactly!"
You probably even went to see a doctor. You told him or her your complaints, they took a quick history, performed a simple physical exam, and then ordered some lab tests.
You might have even left hopeful, thinking that maybe this would be the time that someone finally figured out what was going on in your body.
Your hope was soon dashed, however, when you received a call from the doctor's office telling you that all of your labs were "normal."
Why is testosterone so important?
It may be the most misunderstood of all of the hormones in the body.
Thanks to anabolic steroids and the misuse of them, many people are afraid of testosterone and have received lots of false information about it.
In fact, it is an essential hormone that both men AND women need to live happy, healthy, energetic lives.
If the levels of testosterone are not optimal in your body, it will be almost impossible to have the quality of life that you should ideally have.
If you are having fatigue, loss of muscle strength, loss of libido, night sweats, headaches, cold intolerance, and if you are gaining belly fat, you may have a testosterone problem.
Let's dive into this hormone further to learn more about it and address much of the misinformation that many people may have. I will also discuss symptoms, testing and treatment.
