When you wake up in the morning, you don’t feel energetic, you are not interested in anything, you don’t want to go to work, and you are inexplicably depressed. If you think this is a sign of depression, you are wrong. Maybe you are possessed by hypothyroidism.
hypothyroidism is a common type of thyroid disease, and it is also a high incidence rate of thyroid disease. The Endocrine Society of China Medical Association once conducted research on 31 provinces, and the results showed that the incidence rate of hypothyroidism was 13.95%, much higher than incidence rate of 1.22% of hyperthyroidism. In addition, hypothyroidism is a typical female disease, in which women account for a large proportion. For women, hypothyroidism is a very high incidence rate. 1 out of every 6 women may suffer from hypothyroidism, and women aged over 35 are high-risk groups for hypothyroidism. < / P > < p > the reason why women are more likely to suffer from hypothyroidism is closely related to progesterone, estrogen and other female hormones. In addition, more importantly, hypothyroidism is also related to emotional management. < / P > < p > as the thyroid gland is an immune organ, it is easy to be affected by emotion. Compared with men, women are more likely to have negative emotions and do worse in emotion management, so they are more prone to hypothyroidism. < / P > < p > the incidence of hypothyroidism is hidden, and the development of the disease is slow. Some patients even began to realize the emergence of hypothyroidism after more than ten years. However, if you find these symptoms, you should be alert. < / P > < p > lower heart rate: due to the lack of thyroid hormone, the contraction of myocardium will be weakened, and the sensitivity of myocardium to two tea polyphenols will also be reduced, resulting in decreased cardiac output and slower heart rate. Therefore, when the heart rate decreases, we should also be careful of hypothyroidism. < / P > < p > nervous system problems: hypothyroidism patients often appear memory loss, slow response performance, and even drowsiness, dementia symptoms. In addition, patients will also have dizziness, headache, tinnitus and other problems. < / P > < p > cardiovascular problems: in addition to the problem of lower heart rate, hypotension, bradycardia and other symptoms will occur in patients with hypothyroidism, which is easy to cause coronary heart disease or pericardial effusion, but generally there will be no heart failure or angina pectoris. < / P > < p > digestive system problems: loss of appetite, abdominal distension, constipation and other digestive disorders are common problems in patients with hypothyroidism. In serious cases, it may also lead to paralytic intestinal obstruction and anemia. < / P > < p > motor system problems: hypothyroidism patients will also have abnormal motor system problems, common symptoms are muscle weakness, muscle pain, etc., patients may also be accompanied by chronic arthritis and other joint diseases. < / P > < p > endocrine disorders: for female patients, hypothyroidism may lead to irregular menstruation, menorrhagia and amenorrhea; for male patients, hypothyroidism may lead to decreased sexual desire and even impotence. < / P > < p > from the above aspects, we can see that hypothyroidism can cause multiple system abnormalities. So, if you suspect that you may have hypothyroidism, what should you do? < / P > < p > if you suspect that you may have hypothyroidism, you can go to the hospital for a thyroid function test, which is also a blood test. If TSH is increased and FT3 and FT4 are decreased, hypothyroidism is confirmed. < / P > < p > when hypothyroidism is diagnosed, we should pay special attention to the management of emotion, and do not be in an emotional or negative mood, otherwise it is not conducive to the recovery of the disease. Secondly, hypothyroidism patients need to pay attention to rest, work and rest, improve the body function. In addition, hypothyroidism patients should pay attention to diet, control the intake of fat and salt, eat less spicy food, and quit smoking and drinking. Hypothyroidism patients can also eat the following kinds of food: < / P > < p > salmon: some hypothyroidism patients are easy to lack vitamin D, and vitamin D is an important material to activate the thyroid gland, salmon is rich in vitamin D, you might as well eat more. < / P > < p > in modern society, women are also under great pressure, and hypothyroidism, as one of the most common diseases in women, is very common in women. When it is found that the body is not timely, it is best to go to the hospital for corresponding diagnosis and treatment in time. < / P > < p > references . China Youth Daily. July 13, 2019 .
