Thanks for choosing HCM..,

The thyroid is a butterfly-shaped gland located in the front of the neck...,

just below the Adams apple. The gland wraps around the windpipe (trachea) and has a shape that is similar to a butterfly formed by two wings (lobes) and attached by a middle part (isthmus). The thyroid gland works like a tiny factory that uses iodine (mostly from the diet in foods such as seafood and salt) to produce thyroid hormones. These hormones help to regulate the body's metabolism and effects processes, such as growth and other important functions of the body.

The two most important thyroid hormones are 1) thyroxine (T4) and 2) triiodothyronine (T3), representing 99.9% and 0.1% of thyroid hormones respectively. The hormone with the most biological power is actually T3. Once released from the thyroid gland into the blood, a large amount of T4 is converted to T3 - the active hormone that affects the metabolism of cells throughout our body. nervousness and tremor: These symptoms, along with agitation, can signal an overfunction of the thyroid gland (hyperthyroidism).


1) Mental fogginess and poor concentration: ,

2) Menstrual changes: Hypothyroidism is sometimes associated with excessive or prolonged menstrual bleeding, while hyperthyroidism can be characterized by scanty or reduced menstrual flow.

3) Feeling bloated: Fluid retention is often a sign of an underactive thyroid gland.

4) Racing heartbeat: An increased heart rate (tachycardia) and palpitations can be symptoms of hyperthyroidism.

5)Aches and pains: Muscle aches and pain can accompany different types of thyroid problems.

6) Weight gain: A modest amount of weight gain often accompanies conditions in which thyroid gland activity is lower than normal.

7) High cholesterol levels: An increase in blood cholesterol levels can occur in individuals with eat intolerance: People with an overactive thyroid gland often complain of intolerance to higher temperatures.

8) Feeling cold: Conversely, those with an underfunctioning thyroid may feel constantly cold.

It is important to remember that none of these symptoms is absolutely specific for thyroid disease. All of them may be caused by a number of different conditions and normal states..So evaluate the case...

Ther is no relation between Throid and widening of eyes.....ok
