Could your thyroid be to blame for your niggling symptoms?
Thyroid disorders are among the most common medical conditions, with an estimated 1 in 20 people affected by a thyroid disorder. Although thyroid disorders are very common, it can be very difficult to diagnose as many of the symptoms of a thyroid disorder can be overlooked (especially if they are mild) or confused with other conditions. Symptoms usually develop slowly and you may not realise you have a medical problem for several years.
An underactive thyroid, (hypothyroidism), occurs when the gland does not produce enough of the thyroid hormones thyroxine (T4) and triiodothyronine (T3). Low thyroid hormone levels ultimately slow down the body’s metabolism.
An overactive thyroid (hyperthyroidism), occurs when the thyroid makes too much of the hormones thyroxine (T4) and triiodothyronine (T3). An excess of thyroid hormones speeds up metabolism in the body.
