Default Hypothyroidism symptom question

Does anyone know if my dog has started waking at night crying to go out and was just diagnosed with hypothyroidism, could that be a symptom? I'm really hoping it is because I can't go many more nights without sleep!

Short answer, yes.

From:
http://autoimmunedisease.suite101.co...hypothyroidism

"Canine hypothyroidism typically begins around puberty and its incidence increases with aging. All three of our canines, 2 boxers and 1 boxer-mix have hypothyroidism, diagnosed after age 7. Similar to humans with hypothyroidism, canines tend to develop a cluster of predominant symptoms that can change over time rather than developing all associated symptoms. Symptoms of hypothyroidism in canines can mimic other diseases such as degenerative myelopathy, a condition that causes hind leg lameness. Other symptoms include weight gain, skin dryness, pus-filled lesions on the skin, infertility, irregular estrous cycles, bradycardia (slow heart rate), resorption of fetuses after being bred, neurological problems, cardiac arrhythmias, muscle weakness, unprovoked aggression toward other animals or people, sudden onset of adult seizures disorder, shortness of breath, fatigue, cognitive changes, joint pain, moodiness, hearing loss, erratic temperament, hypo-attentiveness, depression, fearfulness, hoarseness, phobias, ear inflammation, crusty skin, exercise intolerance, inclination toward infection, incontinence, anxiety, passivity, compulsiveness, and irritability."
