You can fight off your hypothyroidism symptoms by exercising regularly. Don’t live with the symptomatic cycle of fatigue, achy joints, muscle weakness, low energy, and weight gain. You need to move and boost your metabolism because regular exercise plays a key role in your hypothyroidism treatment plan.
Regular Exercise and Hypothyroidism
Start slowly with a with a low-impact regimen of stretching and weight training. Then, increase your activity level as tolerated. Gradually increasing your body’s tolerance will ensure that you don’t push yourself to exhaustion and give up.
Five to seven days a week regimen:
- Weight-bearing exercises
- Exercise bike
- Elliptical machine
- Try a balance ball to help improve your balance
Regular exercise will enable you to lower your dosage of hypothyroidism medication. The more you exercise, the less you will feel fatigued and depressed. Because you will build muscle mass, weakness will dissipate.
