Customer: In the last month I think.
Dr Brims : Do you have any medical conditions or take any medication?
Customer: I am about 30 pounds overweight, take prem-pro for menopause symptoms, good physical health just overweight and have office job at a desk all day so pretty sedentary.
Dr Brims : I see, and have you had any tests?
Customer: no. I had the lifeline testing where they check you for strokes and heart attacks and I was fine in all of that. Blood pressure was ok.
Dr Brims : Okay, you may be suffering from hypothyroidism, which is due to low output from the thyroid hormone, it can lead to the symptoms you have above
Dr Brims : I would recommend you have this evaluated with a blood test called a TSH, it is routine and inexpensive

Dr Brims : The conditions is easily treated with thyroid hormone supplements
Customer: I actually was on something for this a few years ago - thank you! XXXXX ask another question - totally unrelated?
