About hypothyroidism

Hypothyroidism, or having an underactive thyroid, means that your body is not producing enough thyroxine, which impacts your body's metabolism.

What are the symptoms of an underactive thyroid?

There are many symptoms of having an underactive thyroid, including:

  • Unexpected weight gain
  • Slowed heart rate
  • Muscle weakness or fatigue
  • Increased sensitivity to cold
  • Constipation
  • Dry skin
  • Puffy face
  • Hoarseness
  • Heavier than normal or irregular menstrual periods
  • Thinning hair
  • Depression
  • Impaired memory
  • Enlarged thyroid gland (goiter)

What are my underactive thyroid treatment options?

Having a thyroid disorder is common and can be managed and treated effectively with proper medication.

In order to receive treatment for an underactive thyroid through Rosemary, you must already have seen a doctor, received a diagnosis and be prescribed your regular treatment by your general practitioner. An online doctor in Australia on our platform can help you access your treatment and is available to chat online about your progress whenever you need.

How do I know if the thyroid medication is working?

Taking your medication as directed is crucial for effective treatment. While some patients will start seeing an improvement in their symptoms within a couple of weeks, for others it could take a month or two to feel better.

This is why monitoring thyroid hormone levels with regular blood tests is absolutely essential to confirm the efficacy and dosing of your medication. This way, your doctor can make adjustments to your dosage and treatments as needed.
