Having hypothyroidism can make you feel exhausted and sluggish, and it can make it difficult to concentrate, among other things—even when you’re taking levothyroxine (a type of thyroid hormone replacement therapy and the most common treatment for hypothyroidism). Weight gain is a common symptom of hypothyroidism, so eating well can also help you maintain a healthy weight. Some foods (eg, high-fiber foods) and supplements (eg, iron, calcium) can affect how you absorb levothyroxine, so talk to your doctor about these foods and supplements. Work in the 3 types of exercises: aerobic (aka cardio), strengthening, and flexibility. Exercises to try: Walking, light weight lifting, and yoga. Talk to your doctor before trying a new exercise program. Go to Bed Early Tonight If you have hypothyroidism, you probably feel tired throughout the day. What helps? Establishing a sleep schedule and sticking to it helps. Go to bed and wake up at the same time every day—including weekends. In general, the sweet spot for sleep is between 7 and 9 hours. If you have trouble falling asleep or staying asleep, talk to your doctor about other ways to help you drift off into dreamland.
