Information about the thyroid

Where is the thyroid?

Your thyroid is a small, butterfly-shaped gland found near the base of your neck.

Your thyroid produces hormones that regulate extremely important metabolic processes throughout the body.

What is hypothyroidism? Another name is; underactive thyroid, which is a deficiency in the production of thyroid hormone, causing vital processes to slow down or stop.

Hypothyroidismn is an auto-immune disease which disturbs thyroid functioning and can cause problems in almost every system of the body from the heart and GI tract to sleep, mood, even the growth of hair, skin and nails.

What are the symptoms of hypothyroidism?

Undiagnosed hypothyroidism symptoms may include;

·      Tiredness

·      Weakness

·      Weight gain

·      Pale dry skin,

·      Hair loss

·      Dry, brittle nails.

·      Sensitivity to cold,

·      Muscle or joint aches,

·      Constipation,

·      Depression,

·      Irritability,

·      Memory loss,

·      Abnormal menstrual cycles with heavy blood flow,

·      Decreased sex drive.

Hyperthyroidism (overactive thyroid) occurs when the thyroid manufactures excess amounts of the thyroid hormones thyroxin and triiodothyronine.

Symptoms of hyperthyroidism include:

Having frequent and sometimes loose bowel movements.

Having fine, soft hair that may be falling out.

Losing weight even though you may be eating normally or more than usual.

Feeling tired, over-nervous, moody or weak

Having hand tremors, or having a fast or irregular heartbeat, or have trouble breathing even when you are resting.

Feeling very hot, sweat a lot, or have warm, red skin that may be itchy.


Patients with overactive thyroids are sometimes treated with radioactive iodine or anti-thyroid medications that reduce thyroid functioning. It can be more challenging to treat an overactive thyroid than an underactive thyroid

These effects can be extensive and permanent, and thyroid supplementation is often required flowing these interventions.)
