Hello and welcome to HCM
Thyroid gland is present in front of neck and its function is to maintain normal metabolism
of the body.
Abnormality of thyroid can be in the form of hyper-functioning or hypo-functioning of the organ.
Symtoms of hyper-functioning gland are loss of weight, increased appetite, tiredness
, anxiety, disturbed sleep, insomnia
, feeling hot and menstrual disturbances.
Hypofunctioning of the gland is characterised by increase in weight, lethargy
, decreased appetite, increased sleep, dryness of skin, decreased attentiveness and menstrual disturbances.
The functioning of thyroid gland is determined by thyroid function tests- hormones TSH, T3 and T4.
Thyronormalcy means that the hormones are within normal limits.
It means that your no pathology is present in the thyroid gland currently.
You need to consult your doctor for further management.
Depending on the symtoms further tests can be ordered.
Thanks and take care
