Patient Comments: Hypothyroidism - Diagnosis

How was your hypothyroidism diagnosed?

Comment from: 35-44 Female Published: October 06

I have been having symptoms of being very tired, many bowel movements; sometimes loose and frequent. I have sweats get agitated and my period is very weird, I sometimes get it and then I don't. I've lost 25 pounds and don't need to at all. I weigh 113 and am 5'2. My skin is oily also and I'm 44 years old. Never had that problem in my life. My appetite is not good either.
