Understanding Hypothyroidism and Weight Gain in Women Over 40 | EPS 487 Candidly with Coffee Candidly with Coffee

    • Health & Fitness

The host discusses an overlooked healthcare issue for women over 40 - hypothyroidism - which can often be mistaken for symptoms of menopause. She explains the direct relationship between hypothyroidism and rapid weight gain, indicates that around 20-35% of menopausal women experience issues with their thyroid and how it contributes to weight gain. The host emphasizes the importance of regular thyroid check-ups and a full thyroid panel, even if previous tests came back normal. She also offers advice for naturally lowering thyrotropin levels (TSH), and explains the need for healthcare practitioners to focus on optimizing health rather than just keeping patients within 'normal' ranges. Lastly, the host shares some personal and family health updates.00:01 Introduction: Health Concerns for Women Over 4000:50 Co-host's Absence: A Personal Health Scare03:36 Engaging with the Audience: Reviews and Updates07:50 Hot Coffee Topic: A Local Crime Story09:47 Hold My Coffee: Addressing Viewer Comments and Show's Evolution15:37 Comment Corner: Engaging with Viewer Comments18:23 Patreon Announcement and Feedback19:40 Introduction to Hypothyroidism20:47 Understanding Hypothyroidism through Analogies21:29 Symptoms and Diagnosis of Hypothyroidism24:20 Personal Experience with Hypothyroidism26:10 The Link between Menopause and Hypothyroidism32:42 Importance of Regular Thyroid Monitoring34:00 Natural Ways to Lower TSH37:44 Understanding Weight Gain in Menopause and Hypothyroidism40:01 Closing Thoughts and Future UpdatesWork with Jeaninehttps://stan.store/mrsceo_jSupport us by following on Social MediaAmazon Storefront: https://www.amazon.com/shop/mrsceo_jLTK Fashion Links: https://www.shopLTK.com/explore/MrsCEO_JInstagram: https://instagram.com/mrsceo_jInstagram: https://instagram.com/candidly_withcoffeeWeight Loss IG: https://instagram.com/@jsbodybootcampTikTok: https://www.tiktok.com/@mrsceo_jMike's YouTube Channel:  @escoelitefitness Mike’s Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/@escoelitefitnessSupport our Sponsors1UP Nutrition Code: JEANINEhttps://www.1upnutrition.com Built Bar Code: MRSCEOJhttps://builtbar.com?baapp=MRSCEOJCRZ YOGA code: MRSCEOJ to save 10%CRZyoga: https://us.crzyoga.com/?ref=JEANINEESCOBAR
