Here at Synergy Nutritionals Australia we LOVE talking about thyroid health awareness. And for good reason!
When your thyroid struggles to produce enough life-sustaining thyroid hormones it has a major impact on your mental and physical wellbeing.
The good news is, if you are living with hypothyroidism which is the technical term for a thyroid hormone deficiency, there really is a lot you can do to improve thyroid function naturally.
And we are here to help you! Our blog is a great place to start. This is a ground-breaking wellness hub that will help you keep up with all the latest thyroid-related health news and information.
In the last year we covered a lot of great topics – like thyroid fatigue, psychological stress, reverse T3 (RT3) symptoms, thyroid testing, and much, much more.
Let’s delve into the most popular blog posts of 2020…
Early Warning Signs of a Thyroid Hormonal Imbalance
The #1 warning sign you are experiencing hypothyroidism is ongoing fatigue. It is also common to experience brain fog, hair loss, unexpected weight gain, constipation, increased sensitivity to cold, dry skin, depression, even muscle aches and pain.
It’s worth noting that you may also notice swelling around your throat and changes to your voice.

The Symptoms of High Reverse T3 You Need To Know About
After its release from the thyroid thyroxine (T4) is converted to triiodothyronine (T3) on demand. T3 is considered the most active thyroid hormone. T4 is also converted to reverse triiodothyronine (RT3) which is far less active and is often called the ‘hibernation hormone’.
The ratio of T3 to RT3 depends on the body’s metabolic needs. The reason is, T3 and RT3 are used to speed up, or slow down metabolism. In a clinical setting high reverse T3 (RT3) indicates you are converting most of your T4 into RT3.

Important Link Between Hypothyroidism and Emotional Symptoms
In the span of a few short months the way we live has drastically changed. For many the COVID-19 restrictions are having a negative impact on psychological wellbeing. By design we are social beings so spending time with friends and family, along with regular community engagement is vital to our mental and emotional health.
Those with hypothyroidism may be at higher risk of psychological distress due to COVID-19 restrictions. So it is even more important to make emotional self-care a top priority.
