Thyroid Problems


Thyroid problems

are common, especially among women.  Research has shown that 1/3 of women who

are within child rearing age will experience a Thyroid Storm after giving birth. The

thyroid is a butterfly-shaped gland located at the frontal base of the neck which is

intricately connected to your body’s endocrine system.  The gland within the endocrine

system produces a hormone which regulates how our body’s cells use energy.  This has a

direct impact on many of our body’s from the heart, kidneys nervousness, excessive

perspiration and menstrual irregularities are other common symptoms of overactive thyroid.

Hair growth is one of various things regulated by the thyroid. When the thyroid releases too is

overactive, our hair suffers. When the Thyroid produces too much hormone often people will

develop Graves’s disease and the hair will fall out in masses. With an underactive

thyroid (hypothyroidism), which is often a result of hashimoto’s disease the impact is

inadequate or no production of the hormone.  The results show within the hair as a shortfall

results in thin, brittle nails and hair. Often weight gain, fatigue and feeling cold are other common

symptoms of underactive thyroid. If you are experiencing any of these symptoms you should

seek professional help from an Endocrinologist.
