This raises the question of whether men and women are affected differently by thyroid disease? This is a snippet from a news article from 2015, so perhaps someone might find a more recent article...
How are Men Affected?
"The thyroid regulates the energy production and metabolism of every cell in the body, so changes in its function can affect every system and look very different from person to person. Many of the issues that occur are similar to those found in women, such as dry skin, exhaustion, cold extremities and constipation. Men, however, also have their own special set of concerns. For example, while women tend to have unexplained weight gain, men may lose muscle mass and strength.
Here is a partial list of symptoms male patients often report:
loss in executive function
diminished ability to think clearly and make decisions
reduced feeling of empowerment and self-assuredness
decrease in sex drive
decreased ability to deal with stress
reduced energy and fatigue
decreased testosterone levels (low T)
