Thyroid Gland’s Job in the Body

Posted by Data Locker - A Pot of Information on January 16, 2009

thyroid_gland_diagWhile most of us wonder how human’s thyroid gland works I have came across some facts detailing on the major job of human glands to our body. The hormones secreted to this gland actually help regulate heart rate, maintain healthy skin, and play a crucial part in metabolism. We have to bear in mind that when the gland is sluggish, it can rob you of energy, dry out your skin, makes your joints ache, cause weight gain, and kick-start depression. When the gland is overworked, this eventually produces too much hormone and it can cause racing heart, sleep disturbances, and weight loss.

To resolve this concern, individuals should seek for some thyroid medication from the experts and be aware that the simple prescription of skin creams and antidepressants would not work. For everybody’s information, thyroid disease is inherited no wonder why a doctor would ask if anyone in your relatives have the disease.

There is a greater probability that older people will get the illness and the females are the ones commonly inflicted by the disease. Another thing that can make the odds worst is when individuals have the autoimmune disorder such as the type 1 diabetes or the rheumatoids arthritis. People have this illness should seriously discuss with the attending physician regarding the proper medical treatment of such a case and this should be done as soon as possible.
