Your Thyroid, Blood Sugar & Metabolic Syndrome

Your Thyroid, Blood Sugar & Metabolic Syndrome

Your thyroid gland affects how much thyroid hormone is produced. The amount of thyroid hormone controls the amount of insulin produced, which determines the amount of glucose in your blood. The thyroid gland influences your metabolism, which can increase your blood sugar. Furthermore, when insulin levels or glucose levels are high, insulin resistance, metabolic syndrome, type 1 diabetes, and type 2 diabetes can occur.

Autoimmune disorders occur when the body mistakenly considers the organs in the body as foreign invaders. This can result in type 1 diabetes and thyroid disease. Furthermore, if you currently have an autoimmune disease, your risk of developing other disorders, including type 1 diabetes, thyroid disease, lupus, and multiple sclerosis increases.

Your hypothalamus, pituitary gland, and adrenal gland work together with the thyroid gland and the pancreas to regulate metabolism. The hypothalamus and pituitary gland stimulate the adrenal gland, the pancreas, and the thyroid gland. When any part of the HPA axis becomes imbalanced, metabolic dysfunction can occur.

Management and Prevention Practices

If you have been diagnosed with diabetes or thyroid disease, one of the most effective strategies for reducing the risk of developing metabolic syndrome is weight management. Losing ten percent of your body weight can greatly reduce your risk of developing thyroid disease, diabetes, and metabolic syndrome.

Following a diabetic friendly diet and exercising at least 30 minutes most days can help prevent and manage thyroid disease and diabetes. Maintaining optimal glucose levels helps improve metabolism, which helps you lose weight and lowers your risk of developing metabolic syndrome.
