1. Regular sleep problems

Insomnia has many causes, one of which is an increased activity of the thyroid gland (as if it is working overtime).

If after sleep you feel even more tired than before, you often wake up at night, you cannot sleep even in a ventilated room after a melatonin pill, then it is worth checking the level of hormones T3 and T4. It is they who are "to blame" for your insomnia, as they stimulate the nervous system too much and prevent you from enjoying the embrace of Morpheus.

2. Excessive sweating

This is a “standard” sign of thyroid hyperactivity. Your blood levels increase hormones that stimulate metabolism, and energy levels increase. The organism reacts to these changes by increased perspiration, over which no antiperspirant has power. Instead of masking the problem, consult your doctor.

3. Unexplained weight jumps

You eat like a bird, and you move a lot, but the weight still increases, and jeans treacherously dig into the stomach? It's time to check your level of thyroid hormones: their deficiency slows down the metabolism, as a result of which you burn fewer calories than you could and gain weight.

Unexplained weight loss can also be a signal of violations in the gland. Do not ignore changes in weight and pass the examination.

4. Permanent alarm condition

The background feeling of excitement arises from the hard work of the brain. It is stimulated by certain hormones, for which the thyroid gland is responsible. If her work is disturbed, the state of anxiety will not leave you for a minute. Familiar feeling? Do not postpone the visit to the endocrinologist!

5. Discomfort in the gastrointestinal tract

Perhaps you never thought that the health of the intestines and the work of the thyroid gland are directly related. The hormones produced by the thyroid have many “tasks,” including the control of the gastrointestinal tract. If these hormones are too many or few, then you may be disturbed by discomfort in the intestines.
