Fatigue & Hypothyroidism

Is fatigue one of the symptoms of hypothyroidism? Should I drink an energy drink on days that are difficult to get through?

Hi Charles! Yes hypothyroidism causes your body's metabolism to slow down, making you feel tired & fatigued. But energy drinks contain plenty of sugar & caffeine which can affect the symptoms further, especially you might feel a surge of energy soon followed by another energy crash. What can be more helpful & sustainable to beat this fatigue is developing a proper rest & rejuvenate routine. Sleeping early, waking up on time, taking your medication early, taking balanced & filling meals, snacks etc. are essential practices here.
