Can hypothyroidism cause premature aging?
I'm only 22 and my parents doesn't have wrinkles at their age. I don't smoke,tan or drink.
And I'm starting to notice lines on my forehead and all over my face. I feel like I look 35. The lines on my forehead are faint. But when i push down, its like a dent where the line is. I have wrinkles on my jaws, mouth and under eyes as well. And acne. I use to have such beautiful skin. Has anyone experienced this?

I am unsure about premature aging, although Hypothyroid does cause a dry
sometimes scaly skin that might resemble aged skin, the acne is usually caused by some hormone issues, I have heard of other Hypothyroid sufferers complain of problems with acne. Have you been diagnosed with any thyroid disease? As this is a Thyroid Forum, I beleive a forum exists for dermatology if you would care to re post on that forum. Good Luck FTB4
