Q:What happens if you don’t treat hypothyroidism?
More Answers to “What happens if you don't treat hypothyroidism?“Hi YankeeHere are the answers you need.HyperthyroidismDefinitionHyperthyroidism is a health condition caused by overproduction of thyroid hormone by the thyroid gland. The thyroid is one of your body’s “master” glands, meaning that it influences and regulates overall metabolism and the overall health of most of the cells in your body, including helping to form protein RNA (the building blocks of life) for every cell and to increase oxygen consumption by most cells. Located at the base of the neck, the thyroid gland consists of two lobes, one on each side of the windpipe (trachea). SymptomsSymptoms of hyperthyroidism include rapid heartbeat, enlarged thyroid (goiter), moist skin, trembling or tremors, erratic pulse pressure levels (too high or too low), fatigue, anxiety, weight loss, bulging eyes, excessive sweating, increased appetite, low tolerance to heat, diarrhea, chest pain, and gastrointestinal disorders. In older people with hyperthyroidism, however, the opposite of the above symptoms can occur. Overall, hyperthyroidism is much rare than hypothyroidism (under active thyroid function). Hyperthyroidism may be associated with and often is called Graves’ disease, a condition characterized by an enlarged thyroid, bulging eyes bulge, rash and swelling in front of the lower leg. CauseAbnormal immune response is believed be a possible cause of hypothyroidism. The exact cause is not known, but certain antibodies from the immune system will launch an assault on the thyroid, disturbing hormone production. Lumps or tumors that form on the thyroid also disrupt hormone production. Temporary hyperthyroidism can be caused by infection or inflammation, and certain prescription drugs. Hyperthyroidism is less common than Hypothyroidism, yet for both diseases, women appear to be more susceptible than men. Be aware that a malfunctioning thyroid may be the cause of recurring illnesses. ——————————…Natural CuresDiet: Eat an organic, whole foods diet, emphasizing foods that naturally suppress excess thyroid hormone production. Such foods include broccoli, Brussels sprouts, cabbage, cauliflower, kale, mustard greens, rutabagas, spinach, turnips, soybeans, peaches, and pears. Eliminate dairy products, over consumption of wheat products, coffee, tea, and caffeinated soft drinks. Hydrotherapy: Hydrotherapy is the application of water, ice, steam and hot and cold temperatures to maintain and restore health. Treatments include full body immersion, steam baths, saunas, sitz baths, colonic irrigation and the application of hot and/or cold compresses. Hydrotherapy is effective for treating a wide range of conditions and can easily be used in the home as part of a self-care program. Many Naturopathic Physicians, Physical Therapists and Day Spas use Hydrotherapy as part of treatment. We suggest several at-home hydrotherapy treatments. Please seek the advice of your alternative health care practitioner before undergoing these procedures to make sure they are appropriate for you. *Purified water is essential for any hydrotherapy treatment. Remedies for Treating Chlorinated Bath Water offers clear instructions and recommendations.Homeopathy: The homeopathic remedy Thyroidium is very helpful in assisting in proper thyroid regulation.Juice Therapy: Drink carrot, celery, spinach, and parsley juice; or juice made from a combination of cabbage, watercress, and spinach.Nutritional Supplementation: The following nutrients can help regulate thyroid function: vitamin A, vitamin B complex, vitamin B1 (thiamine), vitamin C, calcium, magnesium, choline, trace minerals, iodine, kelp, and thyroid glandulars.Alternative Professional CareIf your symptoms persist despite the above measures, seek the help of a qualified health professional.
