If you suffer from polycystic ovarian syndrome and feel exhausted all the time, you may also have autoimmune thyroiditis.
Some 40% of women with PCOS also have autoimmune thyroiditis and are six and a half times more likely to have autoimmune thyroid damage than women without PCOS, according to a study in the European Journal of Endocrinology.
The increased risk may be linked to low progesterone levels, leading to over stimulation of the immune system. It may also explain the increased risk of inflammation and other examples of autoimmune disease in women with PCOS.
Thyroid hormones are important to almost every major function in your body. They impact your cardiovascular system, metabolism, fertility and energy levels.
Make sure your doctor does a complete thyroid test along with your PCOS tests. Be sure he or she tests your thyroid antibodies as well as your TSH (thyroid stimulating hormone) levels.
Ensure your doctor is using the most recent TSH standards. Many women have been told they don’t have a thyroid problem when in fact they DO under the most recent guidelines.
