Thyroid Awareness Month: Suffering from Thyroid problems? Keep these few things in mind

Thyroid is a gland located in the front of the neck and is crucial part of the endocrine system, which produces and regulates hormones in the body. Thyroid problems are becoming more and more profound and has become a common disease among individuals.

The month of January is celebrated as Thyroid Awareness Month. On that note, let us get more informed about the disease and learn how we can prevent it.

Defining factors for irregular Thyroid

1. Iodine

Iodine is a crucial component for the production of thyroid hormones. Both insufficient and excessive iodine intake can disrupt thyroid function.

2. Genetic Factors

Thyroid problems can have a genetic component. If there is a family history of thyroid disorders, an individual may have a higher risk.

3. Gender and Age

Thyroid disorders, particularly autoimmune conditions like Hashimoto's and Graves' disease, are more common in women than in men. The risk also tends to increase with age.

4. Stress

Prolonged stress may contribute to thyroid dysfunction and lead to thyroid problems.

What are some common symptoms of Thyroid

1. Weight Loss

Many individuals suffering from Thyroid issues may experience weight loss despite an increased appetite.

2. High heart rate

Palpitations and a rapid or irregular heartbeat can occur.

3. Anxiety and nervousness

More production of Thyroid can lead to heightened levels of anxiety, irritability, and nervousness.

4. Other symptoms

Some other symptoms are fatigue, muscle ache, weakness and joint pain.

If you have problems with your thyroid, avoid smoking and drinking. These habits can make this problem serious. Avoid eating oily, spicy and processed foods.
