Thyroid

How to know if you have a thyroid problem?

by andMe Bioactive Beverage 23 Nov 2021

Thyroid, a small butterfly-shaped gland that is located at the base of our neck plays an important role in ensuring men and women’s health. Studies show that, women are more likely to develop a problem with their thyroid.

The most common issues with thyroid are:

1. Hypothyroidism : This happens when the gland does not produce enough hormones

2. Hyperthyroidism : This happens when the gland produces the hormones in excess

Issues with the thyroid can be difficult to diagnose on your own. This is because the symptoms can be easily mistaken for any other health issue or cognitive problem.

You should get in touch with your doctor, the moment you notice any of the following warning signs of the thyroid:


1. Fatigue

People generally use tired and fatigued as interchangeable. While feeling tired can be fixed with a good night’s sleep or a nice spa, the fatigue one might experience during hypothyroidism or any other thyroid disorder cannot be fixed that easily.

2. Drastic change in weight

As it regulated your metabolism, thyroid plays an important role in your weight management. Any problems with thyroid can lead to improper functioning of your metabolism and can greatly impact your body weight.

People with severe hypothyroidism tend to gain up weight dramatically. This weight gain is not because of the fat gain but because of the retention of water and salt in the body.

Thyroid problems can also lead to weight loss. This generally happens in the case of hyperthyroidism. The overactive thyroid uses up more calories, resulting in a deficiency of enough calories for the rest of your body.

3. Changes in heart rate

Your thyroid health can have an impact on your cardiac health.

For instance, hypothyroidism can lead to a slower heart rate. This can make arteries losing their elasticity and you might end up having high blood pressure.

On the other hand, people with hyperthyroidism experience an increased heart rate with irregular rhythms.

    4. Sensitivity to heat and cold

People with an overactive thyroid are sensitive to heat. Too much of the thyroid hormone (thyroxine) makes you feel hot even when others are feeling comfortable (or even cold). This also causes people with hyperthyroidism to experience abnormal sweating and even anxiety due to feeling hot.

People with hypothyroidism often experience cold hands and feet. This can even occur in situations where other people are feeling hot. This happens because the body is not producing enough thyroxine which makes your metabolism slow. Eventually, it results in your body not creating enough energy that can keep you warm.

Point is, thyroid disorders can affect you in different ways, even in opposite ways (depending on the type of disorder you have). Hence, it is advised to watch out  for any changes and get in touch with your doctor.

    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).
