Thyroid Gland



What Is Thyroid Gland And Ayurvedic Treatment For Thyroid?

Through the hormones, our body produces the thyroid gland which affects almost all of the metabolic processes in one's body. The most common thyroid problems involve abnormal production of the hormone. Although the effects can be unpleasant or uncomfortable, most thyroid problems can be managed well if diagnosed early and treated.

What are the different types of thyroids?


In hyperthyroidism, the thyroid gland is overactive. It produces thyroid hormone in excessive quantities.

Excessive thyroid hormone production leads to the following symptoms:

  • restlessness
  • nervousness
  • racing heart
  • irritability
  • increased sweating
  • shaking
  • anxiety
  • trouble sleeping
  • thin skin
  • brittle hair and nails
  • muscle weakness
  • weight loss
  • bulging eyes


Hypothyroidism is the opposite of hyperthyroidism. The thyroid gland is underactive, and can not produce enough hormones.

Too little thyroid hormone production leads to the following symptoms:

  • fatigue
  • dry skin
  • increased sensitivity to cold
  • memory problems
  • constipation
  • depression
  • weight gain
  • weakness
  • slow heart rate
  • coma

Hypothyroidism results when the thyroid gland fails to form sufficient hormones. Hypothyroidism may be caused due to several factors, such as:

  • Autoimmune disease. Autoimmune disorders occur when your immune system generates antibodies that attack your own tissues. Sometimes this process also involves the thyroid gland.
  • Over-response to hyperthyroidism treatment. People who produce thyroid hormone (hyperthyroidism) in large quantities are often treated with radioactive iodine or anti-thyroid medications. The goal of such treatments is to get thyroid function back to normal. However, at times, correcting hyperthyroidism can end up reducing the thyroid hormone production too much which can lead to permanent hypothyroidism.
  • Thyroid surgery. Removing all or a large portion of your thyroid gland can reduce or stop hormone production.
  • Radiation therapy. Radiation used to treat head and neck cancers can affect your thyroid gland and may lead to hypothyroidism.
  • Medications. A number of medicines can lead to hypothyroidism. One such medication is lithium, which is often used for the treatment of some psychiatric disorders.

Some times, hypothyroidism may result from one of the following:

  • Congenital disease. Some babies might be born with a defective thyroid gland or no thyroid gland. Mostly the thyroid glands don't develop normally for unknown reasons, and some children also have an inherited form of the disorder.
  • Pituitary disorder. An extremely rare cause of hypothyroidism is the failure of one's pituitary gland to generate sufficient thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH) — usually because of a benign tumor of the pituitary gland.
  • Pregnancy. Some women develop hypothyroidism during or after their pregnancy (postpartum hypothyroidism).
  • Iodine deficiency. Too little iodine can lead to hypothyroidism, and too much iodine can deteriorate hypothyroidism in people who already have the condition.
