The thyroid gland is an important organ in our body. The slightest failure in its work can lead to the most unpredictable consequences. One of the main causes of thyroid disorders is iodine deficiency in the body.
In Ukraine, iodine deficiency, the main source of which is products of animal (60%) and vegetable (34%) origin, as well as water and air (3% each), is observed in all regions of the country, and as a result, the percentage of people with thyroid pathologies is increasing.
The thyroid gland controls the work of all organs and systems in our body, and each of them will respond to a decrease or increase in its hormones to a greater or lesser extent. What is the first to react to thyroid problems is an individual feature of each person. For some, the first signals are weight gain or loss. At the same time, neither diets nor training in the gym give any results. Someone else complains of mood swings, inattention, attributing it to fatigue at work.
Common symptoms that may signal thyroid problems include:
- Violation of the menstrual cycle, miscarriage, disruption of labor;
- Violations of the emotional background (depression, excessive fatigue, insomnia);
- Decreased working capacity, deterioration of memory, attention;
- Tachycardia, heart failure, brittle nails, intense hair loss appear;
- Physical, mental, and sexual development is impaired in children with an imbalance of thyroid hormones.
