symptom thyroid : The Dangers of "Explaining Away Your Symptoms."

Assess Your Risks -- What are the key risk factors? Your chance of having a thyroid problem is greater if any of the following are true for you:

Family history of thyroid disease -- having parents, grandparents, siblings, and children with thyroid problems significantly increases your risk of also having a thyroid problem
Gender -- women are seven times more likely than men to develop a thyroid problem.
Age -- the risk of thyroid problems increase with age. By the age of 60, a woman has a one in five chance of having a thyroid problem.
Hormonal Change -- the post-partum and menopausal periods seem to be times when women are particularly vulnerable to the appearance of thyroid problems.
Other Autoimmune Diseases -- if you or family members of other autoimmune diseases, like lupus, multiple sclerosis, or rheumatoid arthritis, for example, you have an increased risk of thyroid problems
