Hypothyroidism is a 'silent epidemic' of misdiagnosis Hypothyroidism and aging share an important common denominator – diminished or faulty hormone production -- so it's easy to see how doctors can miss a diagnosis.

The lows and highs of thyroid
by C. Robert Meloni
The lows and highs of thyroid This hormone stimulates metabolism, and that creates symptoms that can include excess sweating, fast heart beat (fast pulse), irritability, trouble sleeping, increased appetite, bulging eyes, shakiness, increased body warmth, and non-blinking of the eyes.

  • You are afraid your doctor will roll her eyes and sigh when you complain that you are tired all the time, or ask if you are bragging or complaining when you tell about your weight loss and excessive energy?
