Does hypothyroidism affect your gut and cause bloating?

Are you feeling bloated and can’t figure out why? Low thyroid hormones can be to blame! Hypothyroidism can have a significant impact on the gut microbiome, digestion and nutrient absorption. In this post, I’m going to share with you how hypothyroidism affects your gut and how it can cause bloating.

Hypothyroidism, or an under active thyroid, is a condition that affects your body’s hormone production. With under active thyroid everything else in your body slows down as thyroid controls lots of processes and other systems, including your gut. One of the most common symptoms associated with hypothyroidism is weight gain and bloating.

Can hypothyroidism cause anxiety and mental health disorders?

Have you been feeling more anxious than usual and not been able to pinpoint the cause?  Are you experiencing mood swings, problems with concentration and brain fog during your day to day activities? You may be surprised but hypothyroidism could be the underlying cause of your anxiety or feeling on edge. We all know that thyroid affects the whole body: your metabolism, your energy and your weight but did you know that it can affect your mood and mental health too? Untreated hypothyroidism is closely linked with anxiety and even depression.
