Thyroid disorder is one of the most common disorders. It happens due to under or over functioning of the thyroid gland. According to the statistics on the American Thyroid Association’s website, around 12% of Americans are likely to suffer from some thyroid disease. Moreover, more than 60% of the people are not even aware of their thyroid disorder. There are many kinds of thyroid diseases, and some of them are Goiter, Hyperthyroidism, Thyroid Nodules, Thyroid cancer, and hypothyroidism.

These types of thyroid disorder can be annoying. It is better to treat this type of disorder. First of all, Doctors use various tests to diagnose your disorder to suggest different types of available treatment methods for your thyroid disorder. You should know about the symptoms of thyroid disorder first because you won’t go to the doctor without any reason, will you?

What are the 8 symptoms of thyroid disorder you should not ignore?

As I said before, 60% of the people are not even aware of their thyroid disorder. This shows how important this article is. Here are the 8 symptoms of thyroid disorder you cannot afford to ignore.

 

  1. Unexplainable Weight Loss

 

The amount of hormones released by your thyroid gland has an impact on your weight. When your thyroid gland releases more hormones than usual, you are likely to lose weight. This condition is called hyperthyroidism. However, it is the symptom of hyperthyroidism only if it is unexplainable, and i.e. without any change in your regular diet or fitness routine.

 

  1. Sadness or Depression

 

Both overactive and under-active thyroid can have an impact on your mood. Too much thyroid hormone can make you feel anxious, irritable, or restless; whereas too less thyroid hormone can make you sad or depressed. It is one of the common thyroid symptoms.

 

  1. Constipation

If you are having the problem with constipation, and you are not able to kick it, then it could be because of disruption in the production of thyroid hormone. It can slow down your digestion process. This is one of the most common symptoms of hypothyroidism.

 

  1. Heart Rate

Your thyroid has an impact on many organs of your body, and it includes your heart too. If the rate of your heartbeat is more or less than normal, then it is likely to be a symptom of thyroid disorder. The normal heartbeat is between 60-100 beats per minute, and it depends on various factors like weight, age, height, and other physical conditions.

 

  1. Swelling In Neck

 

If your neck is swollen, then it is obvious that something is not right with your thyroid. You just cannot ignore this symptom. It should be taken very seriously, and you should immediately see your doctor. The inflammation in your neck could also have the presence of cancer or nodules. Because many people are not even aware of the common symptoms of thyroid.

 

  1. Hair Loss

Can your hair loss be the result of thyroid disorder? Yes, it can be. The study shows that abnormal function of your thyroid can lead to hair loss. This is a common symptom, which is shared by both hyperthyroidism and hypothyroidism. Some people look for many different problems to tackle the problem of hair loss, but they don’t have a clue that it could be because of thyroid disorder.

 

  1. Too Much Sleep

 

It is obviously very good for your health to have an adequate level of sleep. However, if you are sleeping too much, then there is a problem. If your thyroid is not functioning in a normal manner, then it can have an adverse impact on your body functions. It can slow down your body functions. You may even feel sleepy during daytime if you have a thyroid disorder.

 

  1. No Interest In Sex

If your mind and body are in the right condition, then you will feel very excited even to hear the word ‘sex.’ However, if you are losing interest in sex, then you should realize that there is something seriously wrong with your health. The study shows that thyroid disorder may cause sexual dysfunction among men, and it can also affect sexual health of women. If you’re having the problem of low libido, then you should be concerned about your health.

 

Conclusion

By now you are aware of all the 8 symptoms of thyroid disorder you cannot afford to ignore. If you experience any of these symptoms, then you must be alert. Some types of thyroid disorder demand a regular visit to the doctor along with regular treatments.

Neither you should keep your thyroid disorder untreated, nor you should be careless regarding your treatment by keeping it under-treated because this can lead to serious consequences. This may also result in life-threatening problems. The study shows that thyroid disorder is also linked to the increased risk of sudden cardiac death. Analyze your body conditions and stay safe.
