The thyroid produces thyroid hormone
that controls many activities in your body,
including how fast you burn calories and how fast
your heartbeats. The diseases of the thyroid
cause it to make either too much or too little of
the hormone. Depending on the amount of hormone
(either high or low) your thyroid produces, you
may often feel restless or tired, or you may lose
or gain weight.

What is the meaning of thyroid?
Thyroid is a small butterfly-shaped gland
attached at the base of your neck, and it is just
below your Adam's apple. This gland makes thyroid
hormone that moves in your blood all over the
body. The thyroid hormone controls metabolism of
the body in various ways, including how fast you
burn calories and how fast your heartbeats.
4
How thyroid affects women?
Women have thyroid disease more than men.
Research shows one in eight women will develop
thyroid problems during her lifetime.

In women, thyroid diseases can cause various
problems like
1) Problems with your menstrual period
Thyroid hormones control the menstrual cycle in
women. The variation in thyroid hormone can make
periods very light or heavy and irregular.
Thyroid disease also can cause your periods to
stop for several months or longer, and a
condition called amenorrhea. If your body's
immune system causes thyroid disease then other
glands like ovaries, may be involved. This can be
the cause of early menopause (before age 40).

2) Problems getting pregnant
Thyroid conditions affect the menstrual cycle
then it can also affect ovulation. This can make
it harder for you to get pregnant.

3) Problems at the time of pregnancy 
Pregnancy can cause thyroid problems to start or
get worse. If left untreated, this can lead to
grave situations for mother and baby, including
miscarriage, premature birth, or
stillbirth. Occasionally, symptoms of thyroid
problems are mistaken for menopause symptoms.
Hypothyroidism generally develops after menopause.

The leading causes of thyroid problems are
  • Iodine Deficiency
  • Autoimmune diseases where the immune system
    attacks individual's own body, leading either to
    hyperthyroidism (Graves disease) or
    hypothyroidism ( Hashimoto's disease)
  • Inflammation of the thyroid gland which can be
    painful or painless caused by a pathogen like
    virus or bacteria

  • Nodules, or non-cancerous lumps, inside the
    thyroid cancerous tumours on the thyroid gland
  • Procedures like radiation therapy, thyroid
    surgery, and some medicines
  • Genetic conditions
  • If you are suffering from any thyroid related
    issues, you can contact your nearest doctor.
