Top 7 Signs Your Thyroid Isn't Working Properly

Top 7 Signs Your Thyroid Isn't Working Properly

The American Thyroid Association reports that up to 20 million Americans have a thyroid condition. Unfortunately, an estimated 60 percent of those who have thyroid disease are unaware of their condition. Women are over eight times more likely to have thyroid problems than men. Below are some signs your thyroid may not be functioning properly.

Your thyroid gland produces hormones that aid in cellular and tissue functions throughout your body. When the thyroid gland is not functioning correctly, a number of signs and symptoms can occur. Furthermore, a malfunctioning thyroid can cause a host of health conditions. For example, if your thyroid does not produce an adequate amount of thyroid hormones, you will be diagnosed with hypothyroidism. Conversely, if too much thyroid hormones are created, you will be diagnosed with hyperthyroidism. Take a look at the top seven signs your thyroid may not be working properly.

Thyroid issues can be treated once a proper diagnosis has been made. In the beginning, the symptoms can be so mild that you do not even realize that you have a thyroid problem. Over time, these symptoms can worsen. Unfortunately, the symptoms of a malfunctioning thyroid gland can mimic a number of other health issues.
