There are 2 main disorders related to the thyroid gland: One is Hypothyroidism, when your thyroid gland doesn’t produce enough thyroid hormone. This is often linked to an iodine deficiency.

Symptoms include:

  • Cold Sensitivity
  • Hair loss, including eyebrows
  • Rough skin, dry, tangled hair
  • Lethargy
  • Weight Gain
  • Constipation
  • Hypoglycemia
  • Memory Loss

Also related to hypothyroidism that are seemingly unrelated to this condition include:

  • Fallen arches
  • Asthma
  • Psoriasis
  • Neck Pain and Stiffness
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Hoarseness
  • Pale Skin and Vertigo

The second disorder is overactive thyroid, or hyperthyroidism, often called Graves Disease. Its symptoms are opposites of those caused by underactive thyroid.

They include:

  • Restlessness and irritability
  • Weight loss
  • Brain Fog
  • Frequent Bowel Movements
  • Irregular Heartbeat
  • Protruding Eyes
