The Goodness of Nature in a Bottle – by Amway

Today, owing to hectic lifestyle people lead, being health conscious has become the latest mantra. I try my best to keep myself fit and healthy. Lately, following veganism is the healthiest choice I have made for life. During these past few months I have noticed the benefits of leading a vegan lifestyle are immense.

For a long and sustainable life, you must take all measures to keep fit and healthy. It is not only necessary to look good outside, but also essential to take care of your internal health too.

Most of us ignore our body from the inside. You may look healthy on the outside, but have poor internal health. go Check your vitamin levels through diagnostic tests to check if you are fit internally. If you are vitamin deficient and require nutritional supplements, you may take proper measures. I would always support finding good and right food to clear out all deficiencies. Food is medicine.

Insights on Facts and Myths on Thyroid: Creating an awareness

Let me share a story of a friend before I begin with the factual knowledge

Being happily married for a year, she and her hubby thought it was time to take their family forward and bring a joy of life in this world. But uncertainty struck them when they were not conceiving. Her menstrual cycles were irregular and she started putting on oodles of weight for no reason. At first, she dismissed these two factors blaming it on the stressful lives that we lead. However, repeated incidences got them worried and they head straight to the gynaecologist.

The first thing the doctor told her was to take a thyroid profile test. Post test result she turned out to be positive for thyroid disorder.

I had the opportunity to attend thyroid awareness event, which threw light on many lesser known facts about thyroid disorder.

What is Hypothyroidism and Thyroweight?

At this event, popular celebrity face Juhi Chawla and famous endocrinologist Dr Shehla present were present to create an awareness on Hypothyroidism and living a healthy life along with it.

Like Dr Shehla said, every 1 in 10 people are diagnosed with thyroid disorder, hypothyroidism being the most common of all. Hypothyroidism is a disorder of thyroid gland where this gland fails to produce enough thyroid hormone. This mainly occurs due to an underactive thyroid gland. Hypothyroidism when left undiagnosed or untreated leads to severe damages to the brain, liver, kidneys, and reproductive system.

The term “Thyroweight” is associated with “Hypothyroidism”, as the first symptom associated with this disorder which is weight gain and tiredness. Since in hypothyroidism , the thyroid gland mainly affects the metabolic rate in our body, it is hugely associated with low activity and hence more weight gain. Today, there are several medical experts like Dr Shehla and celebrities like Juhi Chawala who talk and advice on how to manage thyroweight and live life healthy with hypothyroidism. In fact, in the event I attended, Juhi also shared that her husband, father in law and her make up artist had thyroid disorder too and they are all doing fine in life by taking one small pill everyday.

Symptoms of Hypothyroidism

Some of the common symptoms of Hypothyrodism are:

  • Unexplained weight gain and Extreme exhaustion and fatigue (Thyroweight)
  • Swelling in the legs, hands, and face
  • Hair loss
  • Constipation
  • Changes in voice
  • Insomnia
  • Mood swings
  • Menstrual cycle irregularities in women

Causes of Hypothyroidism

  • Auto-immune disorders
  • Removal of thyroid gland
  • Hereditary
  • Pituitary gland disorder
  • Excess iodine intake
  • Congenital defects

Diagnosis and Treatment of Hypothyroidism

Once you experience the symptoms you must go to a doctor to have him prescribe you a TSH test. This is one of the best blood tests available to diagnose hypothyroidism. If you are diagnosed with Hypothyroidism, your endocrinologist will prescribe you thyroid supplements.

Hypothyroidism and Pregnancy

Hormones related to pregnancy further bring down thyroid hormone levels in the body and adequate care must be given to maintain the required levels of TSH in the blood. During pregnancy, TSH is constantly monitored and medications are prescribed if required. Untreated hypothyroidism in pregnant women can cause complications like still birth, hypertension, anaemia, cardiovascular disorders, mental retardation, low IQ, and low birth weight.

You must too not ignore the symptoms if you experience them and get yourselves checked- #ruleoutThyroweight
