Quick quiz: menopause or thyroid problem?

  1. Fatigue
  2. Heart palpitations
  3. Dry skin
  4. Trouble sleeping
  5. Hair loss
  6. Weight gain

Actually, it's kind of a trick question: all of these symptoms can be caused by menopause OR thyroid dysfunction.

Because menopause and thyroid disease can look a lot alike, all too often women who are dealing with thyroid problems like hypo- or hyperthyroidism are told "it's just menopause" or "you're just getting older." To make matters even more complicated, women in midlife are more prone to thyroid disease, increasing the chances that "it's just menopause" is actually "just an incomplete diagnosis."

Yes, it might be "just menopause." But what if it's not?

Thyroid disease can have serious and lasting health impacts if left untreated. So we asked Dr. Kate Kass, a functional medicine physician who specializes in hormonal health, to talk about the differences in symptoms, how to test for thyroid disease, and what we can do to optimize our health under any circumstances.

Get more information on Dr. Kass and see the entire transcript at genneve.com
