Manifestations Of Hypothyroidism and Hyperthyroidism
- Thyroid is a butterfly-shaped gland which is located in front of the neck.
- It produces hormones which control the rate of metabolism in the body(Palace, 2017).
- Thyroid can become overactive producing more hormones or under reactive producing less hormones. The respective conditions are known as hyperthyroidism and hypothyroidism.
- These are two distinct conditions with different manifestations
- Hyperthyroidism occurs when thyroid gland produces more hormone thyroxine than the body requires.
- It causes acceleration of metabolism of the body which causes inadvertent loss of weight (Grais & Sowers, 2014).
- Initially, most patients do not experience any symptoms, hence do not get diagnosed with hyperthyroidism until it is in its advanced stage.
- Hyperthyroidism Manifestations
- Irregular or rapid heartbeat and increased resting heart rate, which causes the palpitation of the heart.
- Thin, delicate skin and irregular hair growth and fingernail (Daumerie & Fichter, 2017).
- Pretibial myxdemia, which causes a thick redness on the front of legs, typically occurs with Graves’ disease.
- Hyperthyroidism Manifestations cont..
- Sweating, which upsurges due to augmented calorigenesis. It is often connected to heat intolerance
- Menstrual disturbances in females such as decreased flow (Sindhu et al., 2016).
- Pretibial myxdemia, which causes a thick redness on the front of legs and characteristically ensues with Graves’ disease
- Enlargement of thyroid which causes a lump in the neck.
- Hypothyroidism, also known as underactive thyroid, is a condition where thyroid gland does not sufficiently produce certain important hormones.
- Individuals with hypothyroidism condition will experience symptoms which are associated to a slow metabolism since the main function of thyroid hormone is to run the body’s metabolism (Palace, 2017).
- Hypothyroidism Manifestations
- Menstrual disturbances in females which is characterized by heavy flow.
- Cold intolerance: individuals with Hypothyroidism condition cannot tolerate cold as other people around them.
- Weight gain or increased difficulty losing weight as a result of low metabolism
- In infants, it causes whitening the eyes and yellowing of the skin (jaundice) (Sindhu et al., 2016).
- Elevated blood cholesterol level
- Pain, stiffness or swelling in your joints
- Causes slower heartbeat
- The thyroid can become overactive producing more hormones or under reactive producing less hormones. The conditions is known are known as hyperthyroidism and hypothyroidism respectively.
- Individuals with hyperthyroidism experience symptoms which are associated to fast metabolism which sweating and enlargement of thyroid.
- On the other hand, people with hypothyroidism condition will experience symptoms which are associated with slow metabolism.
