The thyroid gland is this small pair of what looks like wings in your neck. And although it is small, it is very important since it is responsible for the production of some of the most important hormones needed for our metabolism and brain functions. Therefore, it is important to recognize the signs of problems that might happen to the thyroid gland.
1- Like we have just said, the hormones the thyroid gland produces are responsible for metabolism. If you are facing some problems with digestion such as constipation, and if you are not defecating often enough, then this most likely means there is a problem with your thyroid gland.
2- It is normal to sweat when it is hot, or when we exercise, or even when we are under some sort of emotional pressure, but other than that excessive sweating could be a sign of a disorder in the thyroid gland. This means it produces more hormones than needed to regulate the temperature of the body.
3- If you are gaining or losing much weight with no apparent reason or change in your eating habits or lifestyle, then this also means there is a disorder in your thyroid gland. This happens because your thyroid produces either more or less than needed metabolism hormones.
4- This gland produces the hormones that enhance the production of energy. So, if there is a problem with it, you will most likely feel sluggish and tired often, such as when you need a day nap even when you’ve had a good eight hours of night sleep.
5- Losing hair might be a natural sign of doing bald, which isn’t that much of a problem (for men at least). However, if you are losing hair from places that shouldn’t shed much of it (such as your eyebrows), then there might be a problem with your thyroid.
