Thyroid And Weight Problems. What's The Link?

by andMe Bioactive Beverage 28 Dec 2021

[article]

Thyroidism, also known as hyper or hypothyroidism, is a condition that occurs when the thyroid gland produces more hormones than the body requires. The thyroid gland is located in the neck, and its main role is to control metabolism. Hyperthyroidism causes problems with the heart, lungs and muscles and can lead to disability or early death.

Thyroidism occurs in about 1% of people. Treatment varies, depending on the type of thyroidism but usually involves anti-thyroid drugs or radiation therapy. In some cases of mild thyroidism, no treatment may be necessary. 

Thyroidism can occur at any age, but it is rare in people under 30 years old. Women are more commonly affected than men, and it's common in middle-aged or older people.  

Treatment for Thyroidism can include medication, radioactive iodine treatment and surgery. However, surgery is only considered if you cannot take medication or radioactive iodine treatment.

The symptoms of thyroid vary according to which type you have, how advanced it is and whether you have related problems such as an overactive pituitary gland (hyperthyroidism) or an underactive pituitary gland (hypothyroidism). 

 Let's take a look at some key symptoms:

  • ‣ Unusual tiredness and fatigue 

  • ‣ Muscle aches 

  • ‣ Stiffness or weakness  

  • ‣ Difficulty in sleeping 

  • ‣ Feeling tired during the day  

  • ‣ Hair loss  

  • ‣ Changes in your voice  

  • ‣ Weight gain or loss  

  • ‣ Swelling of the face and neck  

  • ‣ Goitre, an enlargement of the thyroid gland in your neck  

  • ‣ Feeling anxious or nervous  

  • ‣ Irritability Changes in your menstrual cycle  

  • ‣ Constipation  

  • ‣ Dry skin  

  • ‣ Brittle nails  
Thyroid and weight problems

Hypothyroidism is when your thyroid gland does not produce enough thyroid hormone. This causes a low metabolism and affects many different areas of your body. It is also known as underactive thyroid, myxedema and myxoedema. Hypothyroidism can develop slowly, or it can come on suddenly. It can be caused by an autoimmune disease, pregnancy, radiation treatment or surgery to remove part of your thyroid gland, or it may just happen for no known reason. 

Hyperthyroidism is a condition where the thyroid gland produces too much thyroid hormone. In the United States, hyperthyroidism (overactive thyroid) is more common than hypothyroidism. Once again, this condition causes a low metabolism, but it affects many other body areas, including the heart, muscles, bones, and skin.  

The symptoms of hypothyroidism include tiredness and weakness, weight gain, constipation, dry skin and hair loss. In addition, hyperthyroid patients may have weight loss, increased appetite, fast heart rate and insomnia. Both conditions can cause problems with your energy level and concentration levels, while in some severe cases, you may experience depression. 

But it is an entirely curable disorder. So, consult a doctor and engage yourself in daily exercising. Also, try to maintain a healthy diet that is free from carbs and junk foods. You can also try some of our natural supplements like andMe's natural Thyrodiet tea.

What is Lorem Ipsum? Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum. Why do we use it? It is a long established fact that a reader will be distracted by the readable content of a page when looking at its layout. The point of using Lorem Ipsum is that it has a more-or-less normal distribution of letters, as opposed to using 'Content here, content here', making it look like readable English. Many desktop publishing packages and web page editors now use Lorem Ipsum as their default model text, and a search for 'lorem ipsum' will uncover many web sites still in their infancy. Various versions have evolved over the years, sometimes by accident, sometimes on purpose (injected humour and the like).
