Thyroid, everything you need to know about an underactive overactive thyroid gland

The thyroid gland, which is classified as an endocrine gland in the body, is located below the larynx and takes the shape of a butterfly divided into two lobes. The importance and functions of the thyroid gland are multiplied, as it is responsible for many functions in the body.

Why does hypothyroidism occur?

Hypothyroidism occurs when the thyroid gland does not produce enough hormones to meet the body's needs.

This leads to a slowdown in the performance of some bodily functions.

Signs and symptoms of hypothyroidism:
  • The feeling of physical fatigue and extreme laziness

  • Slow heart rate (bradycardia)

  • difficulty breathing

  • Mood changes and depression

  • Weight gain due to poor fat-burning levels

  • Hormone disorder

  • permanent cold


Hyperthyroidism occurs when the thyroid gland produces too much thyroid hormone. Hyperthyroidism causes an imbalance in the performance of some body functions.

Symptoms of a Hyperthyroidism
  • Acceleration in the performance of various functions in the body, rapid heartbeat, difficulty breathing

  • Difficulty Concentrating

  • Sudden mood and psychological changes

  • Increase the rate of fat burning, which leads to weight loss

  • sleep problems

There are many different ways to treat hyperthyroidism. Antithyroid medications and radioactive iodine can be used to slow down the amount of hormones your thyroid gland makes. Sometimes, treatment for hyperthyroidism includes surgery to remove all or part of the thyroid gland. In some cases, depending on the cause, hyperthyroidism may improve without medication or other treatment.
