Isaacs, MD, Scott 1_cred Dr. Scott IsaacsDr. Scott Isaacs from Atlanta Endocrine Associates answers a reader’s question about symptoms of low thyroid.

Q: Why do I still have symptoms of low thyroid, even though I take thyroid medication? 

A: Many patients experience symptoms of hypothyroidism like weight gain, depression and dry skin despite taking medication. This can occur when the body has difficulty converting synthetic thyroid medication, which contains an inactive hormone, to an active form. Changing the brand of medication or using a natural version can provide improved symptom relief.
