Thyroid disorders and complications are more common than you realise, affecting millions of people every year. It’s also a very common hereditary issue, passed down from generation to generation.
1. Fluctuating weight
Thyroid controls your metabolism, so if there’s a problem with your thyroid, it’s obviously going to affect your weight. People with hyperactive thyroid tend to lose weight and people with hypoactive thyroids experience weight gain. But there are many bodily factors that influence weight; thyroid is just one of them.
2. Hair loss
Hair thinning or hair loss is the other major sign that you might be suffering from thyroid problems. A hyperactive and even hypoactive thyroid can affect your hair growth or loss. The common phenomenon is that the thinning of hair is quite uniform in most cases but can be different for everyone.
