Thyroid problems and vitamin deficiency
can impact the quality of your life.
Risks factors for low Vitamin D are brittle bones, osteoporosis, insulin resistance, high blood pressure, decreased immune function, depression and other mental health disorders. Symptoms of low Vitamin D are muscle aches, weakness, muscle tension, joint pain and fatigue. The symptoms of Vitamin D deficiency are vague and difficult to diagnose. You may be prone to Vitamin D deficiency if you have one or more of the following symptoms:
A healthy thyroid can help you maintain your active lifestyle well into your twilight years. Thyroid hormone treatment is important to help keep your mind and emotions in check. As we age, our thyroid levels fluctuate. Maintaining the optimal levels will decrease the consequences of hypo or hyperthyroidism.
Benefits of thyroid hormones result in increased metabolism, regulated body temperature and increases fat breakdown (resulting in weight loss as well as lowering cholesterol). It protects against cardiovascular disease while cerebral function is enhanced and symptoms of depression decline. Low thyroid can specifically affect the health of hair, skin, nails and cause fatigue. Thyroid hormone treatment is an important facet to the quality of our life.
Only certain foods contain Vitamin B12. These include meat, eggs, poultry, dairy products and other foods from animals. Strict vegetarians and vegans are at high risk for developing a B12 deficiency if they don’t eat grains that have been fortified with the vitamin or take a vitamin supplement. People who have stomach stapling or other forms of weight-loss surgery are also more likely to be low in B12 because the operation interferes with the body’s ability to extract the vitamin from food.
Estrogen helps maintain good bone density, skin temperature and vaginal health. A drop in estrogen levels can cause:
- Vaginal dryness
- Urinary problems
- Thinning hair
- Sleep problems
- Night sweats
- Mood swings
- Lower fertility
- Irregular periods
- Hot flashes
- Concentration and memory difficulties
- Tender breasts
- Accumulation of fat in the abdomen

My passion is quality of life, which is what prompted me to become a healthcare provider. I enjoy seeing people live the best life they can and encourage people to approach their healthcare in a preventative way versus treat conditions after the deterioration of quality has occurred. However, I want people to understand their conditions and lead them into getting the best quality of life they can. I am a wife, mother of 3 boys, nurse practitioner, and roller derby player. I worked as a Cardiac Nurse for 8 ½ years and then in a Long Term Acute Care Hospital for 2 ½ years. I graduated from Simmons College with a Master’s in Science in Nursing Degree.
