Comments Off on 10 Signs You May Have A Thyroid Problem 1055

Have you ever heard someone who was overweight use the “excuse” that a thyroid problem has caused their weight gain? The word “excuse,” is in quotes for a reason, and that reason is that a thyroid problem really can cause a person to gain weight, and if the problem is not addressed, it could cause them to put on a lot of weight. There are probably people who say a thyroid problem is responsible for their weight gain when it really isn’t true, but you can be certain that for some people, it’s 100 percent legitimate. The thyroid is a small butterfly-shaped gland that is located in the neck that has a big job to do. The thyroid regulates the levels of various hormones in the body that are essential for keeping us alive. A thyroid problem can become very serious if left untreated, so don’t delay seeing a doctor if you suspect you have one. These are the most common signs and symptoms.

1. Fatigue

The thyroid really does regulate a tremendous variety of the body’s functions, so you are quite likely to notice if it is not functioning properly. You can become fatigued, and feel generally worn out due to a thyroid problem. You will tend to tire easily, and end up feeling exhausted at the end of the day, even if you didn’t do anything that would normally wear you out.
