Thyroid is a butterfly-shaped gland in the neck that helps regulate metabolism and energy levels by producing hormones. There are two types of conditions associated with thyroid – hypothyroidism, characterised by insufficient hormone production, and hyperthyroidism, where hormone production is excessive. Hyperthyroidism accelerates bodily functions, leading to weight loss, anxiety, rapid heart rate, and tremors. Not just that! If left untreated, it can lead to serious complications, which include heart problems.
