    Being Tired

    Could being tired all the time be a possible indication that I have a thyroid problem?

    I would think it would because then you are already slowed by your metabolic rate and thus it becomes a chain effect. The added weight gain tends to slow anyone down.

    Yes, I thought the added weight would be an issue for tiredness, but I was mostly referring to more than just the weight like feeling sleepy even though you just got up, etc.

    I have a friend with a thyroid infection, I guess that is what we think it is, and one of her symptoms is being tired all the time for no reason.

    Re: Being Tired

    Interestingly enough, fatigue's been mentioned as a symptom of an autoimmune thyroid disease that may go undiagnosed. Perhaps the other symptoms will ring a bell too, Wilber.

    Undiagnosed thyroid disease could be a factor in fatigue, weight gain

    Are you suffering from fatigue, depression, sweet cravings or an inability to lose weight? Your thyroid could be a major contributing factor to these symptoms. Your thyroid gland may have been checked by your physician, but were you evaluated for autoimmune thyroid disease? The No. 1 cause of hypothyroidism in the world is Hashimoto's autoimmune thyroid.

    This is a condition in which the body produces antibodies that attack the thyroid gland. This results in slow destruction of the thyroid gland leading to hypothyroidism. The autoimmune attack can also result in hyper functioning of the thyroid, known as Grave's disease, where too much thyroid hormone is produced.
    One part that stood out for me was this. It sounds like the radioactive iodine therapy would make this thyroid disorder worse:

    Iodine is a major factor in thyroid health, but too much of it is not recommended for patients with autoimmune thyroid. Iodine stimulates the enzyme that is under attack from Hashimoto's disease. Supplemental iodine will increase this immune response leading to further destruction.

    No, its not necessary to have a definite thyroid problem in that case. Excessive tiredness or feeling of being tired all the time can be due to lack of proper rest, and lack of proper diet also.

    On the other hand, to rule out the possibility of thyroid disease, you can go for a thyroid screen that will include measurement of your blood thyroid hormone levels.

    There could be other reasons also for being tired. If you have blocks in your arteries, that could reduce the blood flow in to your heart. That would in turn make you feel tired.
