2. Early Warning Signs

Before being diagnosed, or sometimes before even suspecting thyroid trouble, many people experience early warning signs of the disease. At their onset, these symptoms are subtle and easily attributable to other causes. As they increase in severity over months or years, they eventually lead people to seek information and help.

In retrospect, many patients with Hashimoto’s disease realize they had not felt well for some time. Most report feeling chronically tired, and blame the weight they have gained on a lack of energy. Other early symptoms include constipation, dry skin, and brittle hair. Some notice an increased sensitivity to cold.
